Covid Andalucia- Andalucía says goodbye to the festivities with 12,341 more infections from Covid and a slight increase in the incidence:
{Translation, summary} 06/01/2022 18:14
-The Kings have left in Andalusia new increases in all the indicators of the pandemic that, in addition, has been accompanied by a rise in hospitalizations and admissions to ICUs. This Thursday, January 6, coinciding with the end of the Christmas holidays, have been registered 12,341 infections in the last 24 hours, compared to 7,388 recorded the previous day. The accumulated incidence at 14 days per 100,000 inhabitants has risen 20 points in one day and stands at 1,575.47 cases compared to 1,555 last Wednesday and very close to the 1,571 positives last Tuesday.
-According to the daily statement from the Andalusian Regional Government Health and Family Council, there have been 8 deaths due to the disease: two in Seville, another two in Córdoba and Granada and one in the provinces of Almería and Málaga.
-At the head of the infections are Seville (2,115), Cádiz (2,030) and Córdoba (1,993), followed by Málaga (1,822), Almaería (1,651), Granada (1,236), Jaén (1,110) and Huelva, which only registered 384 more positives in 24 hours.
-The healthcare pressure continues to accelerate with 55 admissions registered in the last 24 hours, reaching 1,388 patients confirmed with Covid-19. Of the patients admitted to Andalusian hospitals, 200 are in Intensive Care Units (ICU). They are six more than the day before (194).

Pharmacists warn against the illegal sale of antigen tests in Malaga province:
Members of the public alerted the College of Pharmacists that the tests are being sold in some hardware shops, kiosks and other outlets.
The College of Pharmacists of Malaga has warned consumers not to buy Covid tests in shops that are not pharmacies. Demand for tests has skyrocketed in recent weeks, but pharmacists said it is highly unlikely that other shops know how to store the tests properly and they could give people incorrect results. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/andalucia/pharmacists-warn-against-20220105180734-nt.html


Hospital pressure rises with 324 hospital admissions due to Covid in Malaga, which reports one death: {Translation, summary} 06 Jan, 2022 13:19
(This is a bad omen folks. The Junta is paying less attention to infection rates, which are at record levels anyway, and focusing more on Covid hospital admissions and death counts, when determining what restrictions they will adopt. The Junta will next meet in mid-January. If hospitalization rates and death counts continue to rise, we could be looking at new restrictions. -Ed.)
-Hospital pressure continues to increase in the province of Malaga, where 324 people were admitted to hospital on Thursday, 26 more than the previous day, 45 of them requiring intensive care in the ICU. The figure – which is the highest in Andalusia – means that the number of hospitalised patients has doubled in just three weeks, from around 150 in mid-December. This comes on a day when one more death from the virus is to be regretted.
-In addition, in the last 24 hours 34 people have had to be hospitalised, one of them in ICU, bringing the total number of admissions since the beginning of the pandemic to 11,338, of which 1,057 have been admitted to Intensive Care Units, according to data provided by the Regional Ministry of Health and Families.
-This Thursday the province has recovered the trend of infections that brings with it the sixth wave and has gone from 972 positives detected by PDIA (PCR and rapid antigen test) on Wednesday, to 1,822.

Tennis News- Novak Djokovic story takes new twists, with three players entering Australia on same visa, while Djok’s Dad declares “Novak is the Spartacus of the new world…”:
-The controversy surrounding Novak Djokovic has taken another twist with the Serbian set to be deported back from Australia. In an extraordinary twist of events, the 34-year-old arrived at Melbourne Airport in the early hours of Thursday morning only to have his visa dramatically revoked.
-Djokovic was then held in the airport and grilled for several hours by border officials before it was announced he had not met entry rules and would be deported. A flight is currently being arranged to fly him out on Thursday.
He has been taken to a government detention hotel while his lawyers have launched an urgent appeal in court for an injunction to halt the process.
-The 20-time Grand Slam champion had his phone confiscated while he was questioned by officials, but as events unfolded his outspoken father, Srdjan, promised a backlash on a Serbian radio station. “This is not a fight for the libertarian world, this is not just a fight for Novak, but a fight for the whole world!” and “Novak is the Spartacus of the new world which won’t tolerate injustice, colonialism and hypocrisy” Srdjan declared.
-And now Ossian Shine, Global Sports Editor for Reuters, has unveiled another potential huge twist in the bizarre saga. “The visa Novak Djokovic was using to gain entry to Australia was the same one used by three other tennis players already granted permission, sources close to Oz Open tell Reuters…” he tweeted. Full article: https://www.express.co.uk/sport/tennis/1545627/Novak-Djokovic-Australia-visa-tennis-news


Tennis News- Djok’s Saga Continues- Tennis Australia was warned a month ago that previous Covid infection would not see players granted a vaccine exemption: An explosive email sent by Australia’s federal health minister warned Tennis Australia that a previous Covid infection would not see players granted a vaccine exemption, an oversight believed to have locked Novak Djokovic in a bitter legal dispute.
-Now a letter sent by Greg Hunt to Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley at the end of November has emerged, showing the health minister warned Australian Open officials that a recent infection would not grant players an exemption.
‘The Australian Border Force has advised that people must be fully vaccinated, as defined by ATAGI (the national advisory body on vaccines) to gain quarantine-free entry into Australia,’ Mr Hunt wrote.
‘In relation to your specific questions, I can confirm that people who contracted Covid-19 within the past six months and seek to enter Australia from overseas, and have not received two doses of a Therapeutic Goods Administration-approved or recognised vaccine are not considered fully vaccinated.’ Full article: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10374213/Bombshell-letter-centre-Novak-Djokovic-drama-Australian-Open-Melbourne.html


Sydney Ashes Test match- Day Three: Haseeb Hameed bowled for just six as England’s disastrous batting in this series continues as they try and chase Australia’s first innings score of 416. Australia will look to drive home the advantage they claimed on day two when they get going on the third day of the Sydney Ashes Test match. Usman Khawaja’s ninth Test century helped the hosts post 416 for eight before Pat Cummins decided to declare their first innings at the SCG. Haseeb Hameed and Zak Crawley survived a tricky period at the end of the day but England still trail the hosts – who already have an unassailable 3-0 series lead – by 403 runs. Photo:GETTY.

Omicron symptoms- two new signs of Covid variant that can’t be mistaken for a common cold: New data from the ZOE Covid study app has identified two new signs of Omicron infection that affect the body in a different way to other common symptoms.
Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, explained that more people are now reporting feeling nauseous in the early stages of infection.
Another emerging symptom among people with Omicron is lower back pain. Full article: https://www.nationalworld.com/health/coronavirus/omicron-symptoms-two-new-signs-of-covid-variant-that-cant-be-mistaken-for-a-common-cold-3517669


AU Covid Vaccine Injury Fund Established- More than 10,000 Aussies plan to claim for Covid injuries under the government’s no-fault indemnity scheme:
-At least 10,000 Australians are to planning to claim up to $20,000 under the federal government’s no-fault indemnity scheme for rare coronavirus vaccine injuries.
-The government is currently in the process of developing the claims scheme for people who suffer a moderate to significant impact following an adverse reaction to a TGA approved Covid-19 vaccine.
-The Therapeutic Goods Administration recorded 78,880 adverse events linked to Covid-19 vaccination, representing a tiny minority (0.21 per cent) of the 37.8 million doses administered to 18.4 million people, by November 7.
-Shine Lawyers’ head of medical negligence Clare Eves told news.com.au.,
“The percentage of people having a quite significant adverse reaction is really small,” she said. “But for those people who are actually the ones suffering that adverse reaction, the outcome is quite devastating for them.” “So it’s not just some niggling ongoing symptoms. Some of these reactions have been clots, major strokes, amputations, major cardiac problems, being on oxygen, having severe headaches that are debilitating and (being) unable to return to work.
“So even though it’s a really small percentage of people who we are seeing suffering a serious adverse reaction, the impact to them individually is actually very, very significant.” Full article: https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/at-work/more-than-10000-aussies-plan-to-claim-for-covid-injuries-under-the-governments-nofault-indemnity-scheme/news-story/4d4e8a1ff7489b6f0728766ebee5c8b2
