Galeria Luz de la Vida is now Centro Luz de la Vida:
Inauguration Centro Luz de la Vida 23/1 in Competa 14:00 – 18:00
In April the plan was to celebrate 6 years of the gallery Luz de la Vida in Competa. But suddenly life changed for everybody. We were dealing with a virus and a lockdown and all agenda’s changed.
The gallery doors were closed, for a long time…. 2020 is for some or many a year of changes, transformations, transitions or awakenings.
Galeria Luz de la Vida is now: Centro Luz de la Vida. A healing, art and cultural centre. In the middle of the Competa we will celebrate life here and shine our light. It will still be a place where art will be shown but for most a place for meditation, (spiritual) music, lectures, courses, massages, gatherings, (creative) workshops and other inspiring and empowering events. An Oasis where the visitor can experience relaxation and can get inspired. A place where people can meet, exchange and support each other. I intend to collaborate with others to arrange a programme that will be offered here. One of them is Lukasz Wieczorek, a Polish man who lives for some years in the ‘campo’ near Competa. He runs El Coyotee MEDicina. He plays didgeridoo, guides ceremonies, and gives ‘meditation concerts’. He is looking forward to starting meditation and breathing courses and to offer other spiritual events.
In these dynamic, intense times we hope to offer a place where one can find balance, healing and peace. We love to connect and to work with our heart and to use our skills to give quality of life to the time here on earth. We’ll also organize awakening café afternoons. There is so much happening in the world we realize it’s good to create an opportunity to exchange thoughts, and to raise awareness about what is really going on. This space is also usable for others, if you like to collaborate, please contact us.
Inauguration this Saturday 23/1
14:00-18:00; 16:00-17:00 spiritual music/ mediation; 17:00-18:00 tapas & drinks. All on donation base.
Calle Laberinto 15, Competa. Welcome!

Andalusia foresees that it will lack Covid vaccines after having consumed half of the doses it reserved: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 21/01/2021 18:24
-The vaccination plan against Covid in Andalusia could slow down on Sunday after having consumed 20,000 of the 43,000 doses this week strategic reserve of the vaccine , according to the Andalusian Minister of Health and Families, , who pointed out this Thursday in the Andalusian Parliament Jesús Aguirre .
-Andalusia decided to reserve 20 percent of the doses distributed by the Government in anticipation of possible problems in the supply weekly of vaccines in order to avoid that people who have received the first dose could not receive the second dose in the time established by the laboratory (21 days for Pfizer vaccines and 28 for Moderna vaccines) due to lack of vials due to a hypothetical delivery problem. The recent decision of the laboratory Pfizer to reduce shipments of the unified purchase of vaccines made by the European Union due to changes in the laboratory’s production line, has cut shipments that will not return to normal until the beginning of February.
-The community pledged to administer each week, an 80 percent of the vaccines received extreme that would have already been met, according to Aguirre’s calculations, by consuming all the available vaccines this Sunday, when the teams continue the vaccination plan with the administration of the second dose in residences and health centers.
-Last Monday the weekly shipment of 69,000 doses was reduced by half and the Junta de Andalucía lacks information on the number of vials that will arrive next Monday, sources from the Ministry of Health said.
-Aguirre defended the political decision to have an adequate reserve of roads, despite the reluctance of the central government, which considered it unnecessary.
-Syringe reserve. On the other hand, the counselor reported that his department placed an order for syringes of 0.1 milliliters , necessary to extract the sixth dose from the Pfizer vials, once the laboratory reported the possibility of obtaining six and not five doses of the vaccine due to the possibility of shortage of these syringes. Salud expects to receive a this week new order for these vaccines . All Andalusian health teams and centers currently have syringes of both 0.1 ml and 0.2 thousand. Aguirre said that the problem solved by the 0.1 ml syringe is being able to access a “culillo” of the vials without cutting the volume of the last dose or wasting it, although it is also possible to do so with more difficulty with the larger capacity syringe. The Junta de Andalucía made a reserve of 25 million syringes to ensure the needs of the entire vaccination plan.
-On the other hand, Jesús Aguirre reported that priority will be given among the target groups of the first phases of vaccination to home help workers to prevent them from becoming a vector of transmission of the virus between dependent people.

Juanma Moreno foresees an explosive growth of coronavirus infections in 12 days in Andalusia, asks Andalusians to stay home from eight in the afternoon (not manditory): {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/21/2021 18: 57
-The Government denied on Wednesday the advance of the curfew to 8pm, but the Minister of Health, Jesús Aguirre, asks that citizens take this measure “voluntarily and in solidarity”
-The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno , has predicted an “explosive growth of infections” of coronavirus in the next 12 days in the autonomous community that will lead to a greater number of hospitalized, those admitted to intensive care units and of deceased. For this reason, he has appealed to the individual and collective responsibility of Andalusians, whom he has asked to exercise caution.
-Moreno Bonilla has clarified that the third wave of the pandemic will be more complex than the previous two , as revealed by the data on infections, hospitalized and deceased, for which he has clarified that it will be necessary to make a very important effort in very difficult circumstances. That lead, he added, to the perimeter closure and even to the suspension of non-essential activities in the municipalities where the pandemic has raged.
-If the Andalusian government, Bonilla has stated, has made these difficult decisions, it is necessary for citizens to also become aware of the situation. “It is fundamental, essential, that each of us take this third wave that we are suffering very seriously. For what is necessary, he added, that caution is increased, the safety distance is maintained, crowds are avoided and masks are used.
-After referring to the nearly 7,000 infections registered today in Andalusia, the president regretted that the inter-territorial health council, held in Seville, did not accept the theses of most of the autonomous communities that require the Government to approve the curfew or either empowers regional governments to apply it.
-“I cannot understand why the curfew is not approved at eight o’clock in the afternoon,” said the president of the Junta de Andalucía, who has warned the Government chaired by Pedro Sánchez that he is making a serious mistake by not doing so: “We need to take decisions now to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

More than six million people over 70 will receive the covid-19 vaccine starting in March: Health and the communities finalize the age ranges of phase 2 of the plan. They study that it starts with those over 90 years old, followed by those in their 80s and 70s.
After what is being an eventful first stage that includes residences, health workers and large dependents, the next group to be vaccinated will be those over 70 years of age, which if the vaccination rate is maintained, will begin in March. Depending on the arrival of doses and whether new vaccines are approved, the deadline could be advanced or delayed, according to sources familiar with the plan tell EL PAÍS.
In total, there are 6.8 million people over 70 years old in all of Spain (to which we must subtract the around 380,000 already vaccinated who are in residences), who will receive a summons from their health center. Those who cannot move will receive a visit from the nurses. “It will be something very similar to what happens with the flu vaccine,” explain sources from an autonomous community that is preparing the plan.

The Government refuses to advance the curfew at eight in the afternoon and the house confinement as requested by Andalusia: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es}
Updated: 20/01/2021 19:58
-The curfew in Andalusia will continue at ten at night. The central government has rejected the request of several autonomous communities, including Andalusia, to advance it to eight in the afternoon to try to stop the third wave of the pandemic coronavirus , which is more explosive than the previous two.
-The Minister of Health, Salvador Illa , has assured the Health Councilors that the communities still have room with the measures that are on the table to stop the growth of infections . Thus, the curfew in Andalusia will continue to be, at the earliest, from ten at night to six in the morning.
-In addition, the Minister of Health has indicated, it will not be possible for now to apply a selective home confinement , as Andalusia had also requested. As Illa pointed out, communities have to use the tools available with the current state of alarm to be able to control the pandemic. It is something that “was already done in the second wave,” recalled the head of Health. As the central government explained in recent days, the autonomies should explore ways that are still possible without touching the current state of alarm decree . Thus, the total closure of trade and mobility is still possible before trying other options such as home confinement or early curfew.

The next target group for coronavirus vaccination in Spain will be those over 80 years of age: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es, content covered in other articles today has been edited out to avoid repetition.} Updated: 20/01/2021 20:20
-The Minister of Health Salvador Illa announced that the next target group for vaccination will be people over 80 years of age. The Health Minister affirmed that there are not vaccines for everyone at the same time, but he wanted to convey tranquillity, because “Europe has ordered another 300 million vaccines, of which 75 million will arrive in Spain in the second quarter.”
-When asked if there are guarantees so that those who have received the first dose can receive the second in due time and form, the also candidate for the PSC in the next elections in Catalonia affirmed that “yes, they are guaranteed” and that “Nothing happens if instead of getting vaccinated a second time at 21 days it is done at 22, 23 or 24”.
-On whether there will be sanctions for mayors and political officials who have been vaccinated when they were not eligible, Salvador Illa said that this is not the task of the Ministry of Health , but “of the autonomous communities.”
-Illa also gave the data that Spain has exceeded one million vaccinated against Covid-19 this Wednesday. Specifically, there are already 1,025,937 people who have received some dose, of which 15,642 have already been immunized with the two required . The Ministry has already distributed a total of 1,346,100 doses to the autonomous communities, of which 76.2 percent have already been administered.
-Illa hopes that “by the end of the week practically all will be vaccinated.” With the data of this Wednesday, a vaccination of 2.17 of every 100 people in Spain has been achieved. The minister stressed that, thus, our country has become “second in the European Union and seventh in the world” in percentage of vaccinated. “We do not do races, it is about working efficiently,” he commented on the matter.
-The President of the Board has informed that Andalusia has sufficient capacity to daily administer a higher number of doses of the vaccine against Covid-19 than those currently being administered. For this reason, Moreno has asked them, “to the extent of their possibilities, increase the doses that reach the autonomous community to achieve full immunization of the Andalusian population as soon as possible.” Illa, in the subsequent press conference, stated that vaccines by communities will be the same for all, “regardless of whether the regions put more or less first doses.” Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-proximo-grupo-diana-vacunacion-coronavirus-espana-seran-mayores-80-anos-202101201915_noticia.html

 

Spain’s over 70s will start being vaccinated in March – if there are enough doses: The immunisation of the over 70s – the next ‘target group’ in Spain’s vaccination strategy against Covid-19 – will begin in March if Pfizer’s supply problems are ironed out. Full article:

Covid Vaccine Scammers in Almeria: The National Police in Almeria have warned of yet another vaccine scam targeting the elderly and vulnerable. Officials reported that two older people were visited in their home by a man wearing a white coat claiming to be a health worker there to offer them the Covid-19 Pfizer jab. He then proceeded to questions the pensioners about other people living on their urbanisation, seemingly particularly interested in whether they lived alone.
National Police have reiterated the caution that coronavirus vaccines are only administered by the Junta de Andalucía through official health centres, and that the jabs are never given out in private homes.

UPDATED- The BOJA publishes the municipalities with perimeter closure in Andalusia from today: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es}
Updated: 19/01/2021 21:52
-The Junta de Andalucía extends from 00:01 hours this Wednesday, January 20, the perimeter closure to 110 municipalities of the autonomous community – among which are the capitals of Cádiz , Córdoba , Granada , Huelva and Málaga – by reaching a incidence rate coronavirus Covid-19 higher than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days.

Taking the dog out after the curfew is allowed in Andalusia “if strictly necessary”: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 19/01/2021 15:50
-The curfew, which is currently established at ten at night in Andalusia, is not an impediment to taking the dog out . This was confirmed this Tuesday by the Minister of the Presidency and spokesman for the Andalusian Government, Elías Bendodo , after the press conference after the Governing Council.
-In this way, and questions from journalists, Bendodo has indicated that dog owners can take them out after ten o’clock at night “if it is strictly necessary.” However, the counselor has stressed that this is not carte blanche to be able to leave after ten o’clock and you have to “use common sense ” .
-It is not the first time that dog owners have been allowed extraordinary outings. It is something that already happened in the months of March, April and May when all citizens were confined to their homes. Then the central government already included the outings with the dog as possible despite the state of alarm.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Entertainment with security covid distance: Hello. Some friends and me are seeing that the options of entertainment will be more reduced not just by the government rules, the fact is that sometimes in some activities is not possible to keep the distance or after 2 drinks you relax too much. We are bored of doing the same things day after day and after we consider different options we came to the conclusion that badminton is a good game to enjoy it with security and at the same time socialize. For this reason we encorauge you and your partner if you have it, to join us. You don’t need to be fit, know the game or have to bring the equipment. We will play in Torrox coast. We will meet maximum 4 persons each time. In this moment we are 44, 48 & 56 years old but all ages are welcome. I will create a calendar for everybody to play. Contact Marison Tel./ 658.569. 7oo

Andalusia will update on Monday and Thursday the rate in municipalities to impose restrictions: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 18/01/2021 14:11
-The provincial committees will meet every Monday and every Thursday to assess the situation of the municipalities. These committees will decide which municipalities are closed perimeter (those that have more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants or grade 1) and in which municipalities the closure of all non-essential activities is ordered (those that have more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants or grade 2) .
-The measures will come into force at 00:01 every Wednesday and 00:01 every Saturday. If a municipality drops below 1,000 or 500 cases, the measures may be relaxed, provided that 14 days have elapsed since they were applied.
-If a municipality goes from more than 500 to more than 1,000 cases, it can go from grade 1 to grade 2, even if 14 days have not elapsed. In these cases, the period of 14 days will begin to count again from the day that grade 2 entered into force.
-The measures will be in force for at least 14 days, even if the incidence rate drops
-This roadmap of the Board has been announced by the Minister of the Presidency, Public Administration and Interior of the Junta de Andalucía, Elías Bendodo in Antequera. Bendodo has indicated that this Monday those municipalities that exceed 500 or 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants will be known.
-In this way, for the data updated on the corresponding Monday, the measures will come into effect at 00:01 on Wednesday, and in the case of those updated on Thursday they will do so on Saturday at 00:01, explained the Andalusian counselor, who has added that the decision is that these measures are maintained for 14 days “to slow down the speed of the curve.”
-There will be no automatic changes. Each territorial Health Committee must analyze the rates and publish in BOJA a resolution on changes in the level of municipalities that exceed the 14-day incidence rate of 500 or 1,000 infections; that is, there are no automatic changes.
-Asked if a total closure of all commercial activity is being considered, Bendodo has clarified that they are doing “precision surgery” with the measures that the Junta de Andalucía has in hand, adding that they have to combine ” the fight against the third wave with maintain economic activity and employment ” . “In this balance we move on a daily basis, obviously we do not want more damage to the economy or employment,” he said.
Bendodo has also alluded to the exception of mobility so that you can go to Sierra Nevada , emphasizing that it is “saving the economy as much as possible”: “It is not just going skiing, it has a very powerful activity in its environment, it generates 500 million euros per year.” At this point, the Andalusian counselor of the Presidency has argued that there “the rules of mobility, capacity and hours also apply.

The Government announces that families will be able to request mortgage moratoriums again until March: The Government will resume until March the legal moratoriums on mortgages and consumer loans. This was announced by the Vice President of Economic Affairs, Nadia calviño , before today’s Eurogroup meeting. With this measure, families, under certain assumptions, may request the suspension of payments of these two types of credits until the end of the first quarter.
This was part of the so-called “social shield” of the Executive, but the possibility of requesting it declined at the end of last September. The duration of that moratorium for each applicant was one legal term of three months , with which it is expected that on this occasion the period of extension of the suspension of payment will also be the same amount of time.

Consider changing these 14 settings on your iPhone 12: Believe it or not, Apple’s default settings aren’t always the best to help you get the most out of your iPhone. We’ll take you through a few steps that will make your new iPhone 12 even better. For instance, if you live somewhere with zero or spotty 5G coverage, there’s no reason to keep 5G on.
Do Not Disturb is disabled right out of the box, which means your iPhone will continue to beep at you throughout the night, causing light sleepers to wake up. Who wants that? Instead, a dip into settings can automatically silence your phone all night long, take advantage of dark mode to save battery life, and put Control Center to work for you by changing your phone’s settings.
Read on for all our tips and note that we update this article as Apple adds new features and settings. Full article: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/change-these-14-settings-on-your-iphone-12-right-away/

Andalucía Claims Government Is Considering Curfew Extension: A spokesperson for the Junta de Andalucía, Elias Bendodo, made the bold claim on Sunday, January 17. The central Executive “seems to be thinking about it, studying it and may agree” when asked about a possible extension to the 10pm curfew. The Andalucían President, Juanma Moreno, has been very vocal in recent days about his desire to have a longer curfew, if not complete home confinement.
Speaking in Estepona, the minister said he was confident that the Government was considering the request of Andalucía to extend the curfew to 8pm and impose home confinement in certain situations.

Is our municipality closed ? The Facts explained in plain English:
Much confusion surrounds the perimeter restrictions here in the province of Malaga so here are a few pointers.
The all-important figure is the incident rate, and this describes the saturation of people in an area of 100,000 people.
So a 500 incident or infection rate means 500 people in 100.000 have a positive infection revealed by a test—obviously the higher the figure, the higher the saturation of those 100.000 people.
Malaga is claiming if you have a rate above 500 in 100.000 inhabitants you are at a bigger risk so the municipality will close its perimeters till the rate lowers.
Your municipality’s town halls have information on official figures for the incident rate and in the list in this article.
For instance, coin recorded an incident rate of 1079 per 100.000 in the last 14 days so this municipality is closed for at least 20 days to bring these numbers down. Marbella, however, has a rate of 485 which is close but not quite 500 per 100.000 people, so it keeps its municipal borders open.
This pic includes a recent list of municipalities with 500 to 1000, and also lists those with over 1000 cases which are therefore closed and restricted. Source: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/01/16/is-our-municipality-closed-the-facts/

Norwegian health officials have adjusted their advice on who gets a COVID-19 vaccine as 29 elderly people die after jab: Norwegian health officials have warned that vaccinating the most frail older people with serious underlying health conditions could be dangerous after the country reported more than 25 deaths.
The Norwegian Medicines Agency first reported on Thursday that 23 elderly people had died in a short time after receiving their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, 13 of which may have suffered from deadly side effects.
However, the number of deaths has been updated to 29 people as of Sunday, according to Bloomberg.
According to the agency, “all deaths” are linked to the Pfizer vaccine, which was the only one available in the country until Friday.
Officials listed fever, vomiting, and nausea as side effects which “may have led to the deaths of some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo of the Norwegian Medicines Agency said, Bloomberg reported.

COVID Restrictions Update- This article is a summary of the official 8 page bulletin from the BOJA (Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía): {Full article translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/16/2021 20:32
-After the announcement yesterday of the restrictions by Juanma Moreno and the refusal this Saturday of the Government to grant the president’s requests, the Board publishes the Official Gazette
-The Government does not allow Andalusia home confinement but it will study the advance of the curfew
-The ten new measures of Andalusia to combat the coronavirus and stop the third wave
-The “explosion” of the third wave of the coronavirus has caused many communities that have been forced to act. Thus, Andalusia has been one of those that has announced new measures against Covid, which will come into force at 00.00 hours this January 17 (early morning from Saturday to Sunday) after the Board has published the Official Gazette of the Board of Andalusia (BOJA) .
-The president, Juanma Moreno , had already explained the most important keys in his appearance on Friday night, but there were a couple of measures that were pending for the Pedro Sánchez government to accept them.
-Andalusia wanted to advance the curfew at 8:00 p.m. and had requested permission to carry out confinements home in those municipalities in which the contagion rate was soaring. Salvador Illa, Minister of Health, intervened this morning at a press conference to make it clear that he will not allow the communities to confine, although he did open the possibility of advancing the curfew, something that he commented that he will deal with those that are interested in it.
-Thus, the curfew in Andalusia remains from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., since Juanma Moreno indicated that it would be the case if the Government did not respond to his request. For the rest, it confirms perimeter closure of the community, the provinces and the municipalities that exceed the incidence of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days .

Click to access BOJA21-506-00008-625-01_00184589.pdf


-In the same way, the BOJA indicates that there is the closure of the hotel industry and non-essential commerce in the 91 municipalities that have a contagion rate higher than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In addition, the bars and restaurants in Andalusia, as well as the shops, will have to close at 18.00 .
-Juanma Moreno also confirmed meetings of people restrictions. The maximum goes from six to four, both in the private sphere (houses) and in the public sphere (street and bars).
*Summary of measures*
1. The Andalusian perimeter closure is maintained. You can only enter or leave with just cause.
2. Closing of hotels and shops at 6 pm.
3. Meetings of 4 people, including tables in bars and restaurants.
4. Perimeter closure of the eight provinces.
5. Perimeter closure of the 219 municipalities with a contagion rate greater than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
6. Closure of the hotel trade and non-essential commerce in the 93 municipalities (of those 219) with a contagion rate higher than 1,000 per 100,000 inhabitants (level 4). At the beginning, the Campo de Gibraltar district was in Level 4, grade II, except for Jimena de la Frontera and San Martín del Tesorillo, for having between 500 and 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. However, the committee of experts has considered that these two municipalities must also enter Level 4, grade II, so no non-essential activity will be allowed in them. In the other 126 municipalities with a contagion rate higher than 500 cases, they will be closed on the perimeter but hospitality activities will be allowed until 6:00 p.m.
7. The curfew is maintained from 10 pm to 6 am, since the Government has not stopped from 8 pm to 6 pm, at the expense of negotiating with the autonomous communities that request it.
8. The restaurant services may make home deliveries until 11:30 p.m., establishing the deadline for placing orders at 10:30 p.m. They may also provide take away food collection services until 9.30 pm In the collection services at the establishment, the customer must place the order by phone.
9. The time limit will not apply to hospitality establishments without music, although they may not issue or consume alcoholic beverages after 6:00 p.m.
10. Authorized mobility for federated athletes, judges and referees, for competitions and training. Without companions.

Sierra Nevada Ski Resort Remains Open Despite Tough New Restrictions: Cetursa has most certainly breathed a sigh of relief as the official Gazette will announce that the Sierra Nevada ski resort can remain open, despite tough new restrictions and municipality closures announced for the Andalucían Community. The ski resort was at capacity on Saturday, January 16 as the recent cold weather has created perfect skiing conditions, and people living further afield no doubt flocked to the mountains to take advantage of the sport before travel is restricted on Sunday. It is expected that the official guidelines will indicate that people may travel to the Sierra Nevada once they don’t come from confined municipalities, but they will have to purchase a ski pass in advance.

The National Police warns of a rebound in scams impersonating Microsoft: The Higher Headquarters of the National Police in Aragon has alerted citizens of a upsurge in scams, initiated through a call, impersonating the Microsoft company .
The modus operandi begins through telephone contacts, which are made using random dialling devices. Thus, unknown people pose as employees of said technology company and request access to the computer that appears to be affected by a virus . Through a series of indications, the victim installs a remote control program on his computer with which the scammers seize keys, passwords and other sensitive information, the National Police explained in a press release.
Before ending the call, the person who is being deceived is asked a small amount of money as a resolution of the problem , for which they ask for the numbering of a credit card. The keys, passwords and sensitive information captured by the scammer, added to the numbering of the card provided by the victim, make the consummation of the scam possible.
From the Higher Police Headquarters it is advised that in no case Microsoft will contact someone without the user having previously requested their service. Source: https://spainsnews.com/the-national-police-warns-of-a-rebound-in-scams-impersonating-microsoft/

 

WhatsApp says you shouldn’t worry about it sharing personal data with Facebook; Experts say you should switch to ‘highly trusted’ Signal: Alan Woodword, a computer scientist at the University of Surrey, told Insider that the mere fact WhatsApp is sharing any sort of personal data with Facebook is concerning as “Facebook openly says that their business model is to use data related to users for profit.”
Woodword, who prefers to use Signal rather than WhatsApp, said he was surprised when he saw the news because Facebook said it wouldn’t collect data from WhatsApp when it took over the messaging app in 2014.

New Covid measures in Andalusia: {Full article translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/15/2021 22:47
-The expansion of the third wave of the coronavirus has forced the Board to act again, just a week after it announced the new measures for Andalusia . And it is that the cases of contagions and hospitalizations have a very worrying dynamic , which has caused the Andalusian Government to act earlier than expected, since the restrictions that began this Monday, January 11, were to remain until the 24th at 11:59 p.m. hours.
-Instead, everything has been precipitated and the Ministry of Health has met this afternoon with the committee of experts , announcing the president, Juanma Moreno , new measures against the Covid in Andalusia , among which those referring to the curfew at 8:00 p.m., the closure of provinces, shops and bars with hours until 6:00 p.m. and meetings of a maximum of four people both in the private and public sphere.
-Thus, Juanma Moreno , who was the one who appeared before the Andalusians a week ago, has done it again this afternoon, explaining the new decisions adopted by the Junta de Andalucía .
-The Andalusian Government asked the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, to be able to modulate the curfew and even carry out a home confinement , although the new PSOE candidate for Catalonia did not agree to the request . But the Junta has decided that the curfew in Andalusia is at 8:00 p.m. This is how it is going to include it in the BOJA that must be published tomorrow, although clarifying that it is a recommendation waiting for the Government of Pedro Sánchez to agree to be able to fix it before 10 p.m., something that, according to Illa, they cannot currently make the autonomous communities. Even so, Andalusia wants to set it between 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. If the Government does not allow it, he would stay from 10pm to 6am.
-Also, with respect to the measures that the Board announced a week ago, there are more important changes. For example, apart from the perimeter fence of the community, now the provinces are also included . In this way, you can only enter or leave each of the eight for justified reasons. What’s more, there will also be perimeter closures of those municipalities that exceed the incidence of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. The Board will review this data for all municipalities on a daily basis to expand the list.
-And there is more. Closure of non-essential hotels and commerce in the 91 municipalities that have a contagion rate of more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. And, if the Government of Spain authorizes it, home confinement in those 91 municipalities .
-There are also news in the number of people for the meetings . For months it was set at six, but from this Sunday the maximum will be four people . And the norm will be both in the private sphere (houses) and in the public (street, parks, bars …) .
-Likewise, shops and bars have their hours reduced. Juanma Moreno last week announced that businesses in Andalusia had close at 20.00, but after the entry into force these measures will be to 18.00 .
-The same will have to do the hospitality industry. Bars and restaurants already had to close at 6:00 p.m. p.m. , but there was the exception of cafeterias , which could remain open until 8:00 , as long as they did not serve alcoholic beverages. Now this rule disappears and all the hospitality will have to close at 18.00 .
-Summary of measures
1. The Andalusian perimeter closure is maintained. You can only enter or leave with just cause.
2. Closing of hotels and shops at 6 pm.
3. Meetings of 4 people, including tables in bars and restaurants.
4. Perimeter closure of the eight provinces.
5. Perimeter closure of the 219 municipalities with a contagion rate greater than 500 per 100,000 inhabitants
6. Closure of non-essential hotels and businesses in the 91 municipalities (of those 219) with a contagion rate greater than 1,000 per 100,000 inhabitants. If the Government of Spain authorizes it, home confinement in those 91 municipalities.
7. Curfew is maintained from 22 to 6 hours. If the Government of Spain authorizes it, it will be from 20 to 6 hours.
8. Pick up of orders in the hospitality industry until 21.30; Orders by phone until 10:30 p.m. and home delivery until 11:30 p.m. If the Government authorizes to advance the curfew, those hours will be adapted.
9. Authorized mobility for federated athletes, judges and referees, for competitions and training. No companions.

What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra! Tell your favourite establishments to post on DigameXtra to get next-day publicity!

Due to the Covid restrictions, to avoid disappointment I suggest you call to confirm events and times before the event. -Ed.

 

Updated COVID restrictions will be announced today, Friday.

From what I have read, the Junta de Andalucia wants stricter rules and is considering a return to home confinement, but the central gov’t needs to approve that, and so far have been hesitant to do so.
What has been discussed, that the Junta can enforce, is that the curfew will begin an hour earlier, at 9pm, and possible municipality or health district closures. However, we will have to wait until later today to learn the verdict. -Ed.

Andalusia doubles those hospitalized for coronavirus in just two weeks and already has 1,791 admitted: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 01/14/2021 19:37
-The third wave of the coronavirus in Andalusia, they had already warned from the Board, is explosive. So much so that this Thursday it has broken the second record of Covid-19 infections since the start of the pandemic. If yesterday the highest figure since March was given with almost 7,000 infections, today it is the second highest number of cases since the beginning of the health crisis, 5,723. Even in the worst of the second wave, this figure was not reached.
-Proof that the second wave arrives with great force is that the incidence rate adds points each day. Thus, today it stands at 405 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants when yesterday it was just over 350. To see the speed with which this data grows, it is enough to remember that last week in Andalusia there were 150 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants, almost three times less than today.
-In addition, the community is close to the average number of cases in Spain -493- when for weeks Andalusia remained well below that average and in the lowest positions of incidence of the pandemic.
-This growth in cases is directly reflected in the hospital situation, which worsens for another day. Those hospitalized for coronavirus are 1,7092 this Thursday, 94 more than yesterday and 700 more than the same day last week. Furthermore, those almost 1,800 hospitalized for Covid-19 are double the number two weeks ago, at the beginning of the year.
-In the ICU the situation is also getting worse. Andalusia has been adding patients in intensive care for eight days, which this Thursday totalled 296. There are 12 more than yesterday and almost 100 more than at the beginning of the year, just 14 days ago.
-Although the situation of the hospitals is worrying, they have indicated from the Board, for the moment the pressure on the health system is not anywhere near what it was at the peak of the second wave . Then, 3,478 were hospitalized in Andalusia, 528 of them in the ICU. However, with this rate of growth, which now, the mark of the second wave may not be that far.
-For its part, there are 29 deaths in Andalusia due to coronavirus this Thursday. It is a figure that is in the average of what has been registered in the previous days in the community. In fact, Andalusia has been scoring around 30 deaths from the pandemic for three days.

Moreno Asks Andalucíans To Stay At Home Where Possible:
President of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, pleaded with citizens to “stay at home to the best of their ability” and try “not to multiply unnecessary social gatherings.” The president’s biggest message (in a speech Thursday) in Sevilla was that citizens should avoid unnecessary gathering wherever possible, and not be tempted to turn their homes into “mini-restaurants” by organising “clandestine parties” for people of different households. Earlier, Mr Moreno called on Pedro Sanchez’s government to take a tougher line with coronavirus restrictions and lockdown. Full article:

COVID-19 infection gives some immunity, but virus can still be spread, study finds: People who have had COVID-19 are highly likely to have immunity to it for at least five months, but there is evidence that those with antibodies may still be able to carry and spread the virus, a study of British healthcare workers has found.
Preliminary findings by scientists at Public Health England (PHE) showed that reinfections in people who have COVID-19 antibodies from a past infection are rare – with only 44 cases found among 6,614 previously infected people in the study.
But experts cautioned that the findings mean people who contracted the disease in the first wave of the pandemic in the early months of 2020 may now be vulnerable to catching it again.
They also warned that people with so-called natural immunity – acquired through having had the infection – may still be able carry the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in their nose and throat and could unwittingly pass it on.
“We now know that most of those who have had the virus, and developed antibodies, are protected from reinfection, but this is not total and we do not yet know how long protection lasts,” said Susan Hopkins, senior medical adviser at PHE and co-leader of the study, whose findings were published on Thursday.

France tightens coronavirus border controls, imposes earlier curfew: France will strengthen border controls and bring forward its night curfew by two hours to 6 p.m. for at least a fortnight as it tries to slow the spread of coronavirus infections, the government said on Thursday.

From Monday, all people travelling to France from outside the European Union will have to show a negative COVID-19 test and self-isolate for a week upon arrival.

Dutch government faces collapse over child benefits scandal: The Dutch government will decide on Friday whether to step down over an escalating scandal in which tax officials wrongly accused thousands of parents of fraud, plunging many families into debt by ordering them to repay childcare allowances.
The opposition Labour party leader, Lodewijk Asscher, who was social affairs minister in the previous government, resigned over the affair on Thursday, denying he knew the tax authority was “wrongly hunting down thousands of families” but conceding a failing system had “made the government an enemy of its people”.
