Covid Andalucia- Andalusia touches 4,000 Covid infections in one day but the number of hospitalized and dead falls: {Translation, summary} 12/16/2021 14:29h
-Andalusia has 3,829 cases of Covid-19 in just 24 hours. This is the highest figure since 9 August, four months ago. The expansionary phase of the sixth wave of the coronavirus is accelerating, but only in the number of infections, according to today’s data.
-Thus, although the community has a record number of positive cases, the number of hospitalised patients has fallen. And this is for the second consecutive day, which is even more significant. Thus, this Thursday there are 495 hospitalised patients in Andalusia, eight less than yesterday, when it was already down by nine. In total, the number of people hospitalised for coronavirus in the region has fallen by 17 in 48 hours.
-Where there has been a slight increase is in the ICU, where 99 patients have been admitted this Thursday, two more than yesterday. However, it should be noted that this number is significantly lower than the figures for other waves, when there were more than 500 people admitted to intensive care.
-Andalusia experienced another decrease on Thursday, in the number of deaths. From 12 yesterday, the number of deaths has fallen to less than half, only five. Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-andalucia-roza-4000-contagios-covid-pero-bajan-hospitalizados-y-muertos-202112161405_noticia.html 


Covid Malaga- The province of Malaga is at high risk of Covid with incidence rate over 312 with almost 900 new cases in one day:
{Translation, summary} 16 Diciembre, 2021 – 14:15h
-New increase in the rate of coronavirus, almost 900 more cases in one day and three more deaths. With this increase, the province of Malaga as a whole is at high risk of spreading Covid. By health districts – which is the demarcation on the basis of which timetable and capacity restrictions are applied – four are already in this range of danger of expansion. Only the Antequera and Guadalhorce districts remain in the medium range, although they are also increasing.
-The epidemiological situation is getting worse by the day when the social contacts typical of these weeks of Christmas festivities have not yet intensified. Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Eve and Epiphany are still to come, which will surely aggravate the situation, as was the case last year.
-The province, which on Wednesday registered 281.8 positives per 100,000 inhabitants, now stands at 312.4. With these figures, Malaga is now at high risk, which is the range between 300 and 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-But the data at health district level are important because they are the ones taken as a reference by the Public Health Alert Committee to apply or lift restrictions. The one with the highest indicator is that of the Serranía, which had already been at a high level for several days. Between Wednesday and Thursday it increased from 401.8 to 423.6. Then there is Malaga, which now enters this range, going from 294.7 to 326.0 between the two days. Within this, the capital – which on Wednesday was at the gates of high risk with 299.4 positives per 100,000 inhabitants – passes fully to this level on Thursday by reaching 334.2. In the Costa del Sol Health District the incidence also increases; from 303.7 to 324.9. Axarquia is another of the areas that also enters this Thursday at high risk: it goes from 248.6 to 304.5.
-Only the Guadalhorce Valley and the Vega de Antequera remain at medium risk of spreading the virus. But both are going up. The first district, from 241.2 on Wednesday to 271.3 this Thursday. The second, from 145.2 to 186.1 between the two days. The average risk is between 100 and 300 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-The daily report provided by the Consejería de Salud y Familias also reports three new deaths.
-Moreover, those cured are fewer than those newly infected. According to the report, 254 people have been cured of the disease in the last few hours, compared to 878 new positives.
-There are another 17 hospitalisations. There are 144 patients admitted to Malaga hospitals, four less than the previous day. However, three deaths were recorded, so that this lower pressure is largely due to the deaths that have occurred. Of those hospitalised, 22 are in intensive care.

Mallorca judge allows child under 12 to be vaxed despite mother’s  arguments against doing so: The parents are separated. The child lives with mother who is against vaxing the child citing several reasons.

Inside the new Orient Express ‘La Dolce Vita’ train ready to depart from Italy in 2023: Not to be confused with Belmond’s Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, this luxury railroad venture is partially owned by Accor Group. While the original Orient Express transported guests to the 1920s, the new Orient Express La Dolce Vita is all about celebrating the 1960s and ’70s, a historic period in Italy known as “La Dolce Vita.”
This 1960s and ’70s feel is complemented by more contemporary design throughout the trains’ 12 deluxe cabins, 18 suites, and one ‘Honour Suite’ (the British spelling is part of its charm), as well as the onboard restaurant.
In 2023, the new Orient Express La Dolce Vita will welcome passengers on six trains offering six itineraries that explore Italy from north to south, along with international routes visiting Paris, Istanbul, and Split, Croatia. Guests can spend anywhere from one to three nights aboard the new trains, with plenty of time at each stop to enjoy the destination. No matter which of the six routes guests choose, a stopover in Rome will be at the heart of every journey, allowing travelers to experience a stay at Minerva, the first Orient Express hotel, which is scheduled to open in 2024.

WhatsApp Crashes for at least five hours and refuses to open on iPhones or desktops: Meta servers are blamed just ten weeks after they caused worldwide Facebook outage: What makes the breakdown of the app which has more than 2.5 billion active users, all the more puzzling is there have been no recent updates released.
It suggests that the bug may lie somewhere on the servers of Facebook, now known as Meta, who operate the app, rather than anything phone-related.
WhatsApp is yet to acknowledge that there is a bug affecting iPhone users. Earlier this year, WhatsApp collapsed for more than five hours together with Facebook, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger in a catastrophic outage that is understood to have been caused by a server update gone wrong.

CDC warns Americans not to get J&J shot over blood clot risk following nine deaths:
The strange clotting problem has caused nine confirmed deaths after J&J vaccinations – while the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines don’t come with that risk and also appear to be more effective, advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. Cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), which involves blood clots accompanied by a low level of platelets, have previously been reported in recipients of the J&J vaccine. The highest reporting rates are in women under 50.
-Panel unanimously recommends more effective Pfizer or Moderna vaccines instead
-CDC panel on Thursday recommended Pfizer and Moderna over J&J shots
-J&J jab has rare but serious side effects and appears to be less effective
-Until now, all three shots have been treated equally by US authorities
-CDC Director Rochelle Walensky must decide whether to accept panel’s advice.

Vast Denmark study confirms rare heart risk from Moderna jab: The Moderna Covid jab carries a slight risk of usually non-serious heart problems a study of the entire population of Denmark found Friday.
Incidences of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the tissue surrounding the heart) after mRNA jabs from Pfizer and Moderna had been noted in vaccine safety reports and small-scale studies.
These reports led France, Denmark and other countries to advise against the jab for people under 30 years old.
“Vaccination with mRNA-1273 (Moderna) was associated with a significantly increased rate of myocarditis or myopericarditis, especially among individuals aged 12-39 years,” the study said.
It said that vaccination with Pfizer was only associated with an increased risk among women.
The study published in the BMJ medical journal is the first to look at these side effects in an entire population.
While it confirms the risks, it insists they are slight and that the risks posed by Covid infection are greater.
