Covid Spain- The incidence rate reaches high risk levels in Spain: {Translation, summary} December 9, 2021 7:02 p.m.
-Health has notified 26,412 infections and 84 deaths since Tuesday.
-The incidence in Spain passes the barrier of 300 points and climbs to 305.57 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, thus entering the ‘high’ contagion range of the coronavirus, according to the new COVID traffic light in Health. This Wednesday Health did not update its data because it was a holiday, and on Tuesday it reported 290.1 cases of incidence, 15 points of difference with respect to this Thursday. The last time the country registered a similar figure was on August 24, when the rate stood at 305.61 cases.
-However, for the country to be at “high risk of contagion”, other criteria must be added in addition to the incidence , such as the occupation of the ICUs or the number of patients admitted for COVID. For example, the hospitalization rate corresponds to low risk levels, since it is between 5 and 15 points (11.55).

Covid Malaga- Four Malaga health districts register a Covid rate higher than 100 and one, more than 240:
-The health district rates are: Axarquía (159.3) Costa del Sol (176.5), Malaga (171.7) and Valle del Guadalhorce (138.8), while one (Serranía) has reached 243.6 Covid positives per 100,000 inhabitants. Only the health district of La Vega is below 100, with 68.1.
-The rate for Malaga province, as a whole, is 164.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days (some 6.8 more than on Wednesday). Only the province of Huelva in the Andalusian region has a higher incidence rate than Malaga (190.4). The lowest rate is in Granada (85.3) and it the only one of the eight Andalusian provinces whose incidence rate is below 100. The average in Andalucía is 136.2.

Andalusia agrees to implement Covid certification in hospitality and nightlife until January 15: {Translation, summary} 09/12/2021 19:28
-The Junta de Andalucía, at the proposal of the committee of experts, has agreed to extend access control by means of Covid certificate to hospitality and nightlife establishments in the community.
-This decision, which will be in force until January 15, will be implemented once ratified by the High Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA) as already happened with its application in health and social-health centers.
-To gain access to bars, restaurants and nightlife venues, it will be necessary to present the vaccination certificate, also known as Covid passport, or a certificate of recovery or negative test -PCR in 72 hours or antigen test in 48 hours carried out by an authorized center.
-The Committee of experts, which has met again this Thursday in person at the Palace of San Telmo, has also decided to modify the capacities foreseen in risk levels 1 and 2. (The specific new capacities were not mentioned. -Ed.)
-The meeting was chaired by the Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, and analyzed the epidemiological situation and the pressure on healthcare. Aguirre recalled that “Andalusia remains at low risk level, but the trend of indicators makes it necessary to maintain preventive measures” and added that “along with the protection of the most vulnerable people we must focus on prevention in enclosed spaces that have a higher risk of exposure and in crowds of people, especially in the upcoming Christmas season”.

Three cases of the Omicron variant confirmed in Andalucía, and another four suspected: The Junta de Andalucía has confirmed the first three cases of the Omicron coronavirus variant in the region this Thursday, 9 December, as well as the existence of four other suspected cases that have yet to be positively identified.
Of the three confirmed cases of Omicron, two are located in Cadiz province and another in Almeria and all patients appear to have ‘mild symptoms’ are ‘in self- isolation’ and none of them has required hospital admission.

What Transparency?  FDA Says It’ll Take 75 Years to Fully Release Pfizer Vaccine Data:
Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency has filed Freedom of Information Act requests for the data, which the FDA at first said would take 55 years to produce at 500 pages per month for the entire 329,000 page cache of documents.
Now the FDA is asking a judge to give it 75 years to produce the data, saying there’s over 59,000 more pages than weren’t mentioned in the first request. That would take the full release to 2096, wrote Aaron Siri, a lawyer working on the case.
On Dec. 2, Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., introduced a bill calling for the head of the FDA to release all records about the vaccine in 100 days.
“Since the Biden administration is hell-bent on forcing these vaccine mandates on us, the public has every right to know how this vaccine was approved, especially in such a short amount of time,” he said in a statement. “After all, the FDA managed to consider all 329,000 pages of data and grant emergency approval of the Pfizer vaccine within just 108 days.” Full article: https://www.newsmax.com/health/health-news/fda-vaccinedata-pfizer-75-years/2021/12/08/id/1047876/

Italy slaps Amazon with €1.1 billion fine for abusing dominant market position: Italy’s competition watchdog said Amazon abused its dominant position by promoting its own logistics, or fulfilment, service that ships and delivers packages, on its Italian platform to the detriment of third-party sellers who did not use it.
The move comes two weeks after the same authority imposed a 68.7-million-euro fine on Amazon for infringing EU laws through restrictions that penalised sellers of Apple and Beats products.
In the same action, Apple was ordered to pay 134.5 million euros.
