COVID-19


The Covid infection curve is slowly starting to fall in Andalusia and is noticeable in hospitals: {Translation, condensed} Updated: 17/06/2021, 19:06
-The downward trend in the incidence of Covid in Andalusia continues, although it is evolving very slowly. The accumulated infection rate in the last 14 days has fallen to 177 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants and the 7-day rate to 77 cases. The estimates of the committee of experts advising the Junta considered that in this period this indicator should be below 100 cases.
-The number of daily infections remains high. On Thursday, the community has 1,418 new infections, a figure higher than the previous day but 109 fewer cases than on the same day last week. The statistics today show 9 deaths due to Covid, which is less than the 15 deaths on Thursday last week.
-The number of cured positives is very similar to the number of infections, with 1,428 confirmed cases in the last 24 hours. Of the 604,213 Andalusians who have been infected with the coronavirus, 575,469 have overcome the disease.
-Today, the number of patients admitted to hospital has dropped significantly. In total there are 674 Covid patients in Andalusian hospitals, 145 of whom are in ICU; eleven less than on Wednesday.
-The percentage of beds occupied by Covid patients is 3.79 percent and although it is at low risk levels, it is higher than the average for Spain (2.5). The same is not true of the ICUs, with an occupancy rate of 7.9, just over one point below the national average.

Osaka withdrew from the French Open after her first round win over Patricia Maria Tig. She had wanted to skip press conferences at Roland-Garros.
When Grand Slam organisers fined her $15,000 and threatened her with expulsion, the 23-year old pulled out of the competition revealing a three-year battle with depression.
On Thursday evening, a statement read: “Naomi won’t be playing Wimbledon this year. She is taking some personal time with friends and family. She will be ready for the Olympics and is excited to play in front of her home fans.”

Bands & Acts: Please submit your gig promos. Your music is your business, you need to get as much exposure as possible, don’t rely on venues to promote you! Most of those FB posts by venues only have a few likes, if any at all, so obviously are not reaching many people. DigameXtra sends out over 4200 email issues everyday to subscribers, and the website gets another 800 visits per day. That is way better exposure than you are getting in any FB posts!!! Entertainers get to post their shows for free as long as they are subscribed to this newsletter. What are you waiting for?

Accessed from the promenade it is tucked away third business along the alleyway at the side of the Chinese clothes shop at Costa Del Oro (shortly before the hotel). We were made very welcome by the Dutch hosts and prices were very good. We didn’t eat but the menu had interesting choices you won’t see in many bars such as Dutch Herring. The owners deserve to be successful and we will be back soon – when we will definitely try that herring! Brenda, Torrox, brendaleetorrox AT gmail d0T com

Spanish PM announces that face masks will ‘soon’ not be mandatory outdoors: Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Wednesday expressed his confidence that “we will soon drop the use of face masks” while outside now that the country’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign has reached “cruising speed”.
Many health experts have been calling for an end to mask-wearing outdoors for some time now, given that there is no evidence that their use when there are no crowds is effective. In order for their compulsory use to be eliminated, the government will have to approve a royal decree in the Congress of Deputies.

DGT Brings In New Beacons From July 1 To Replace Emergency Triangles: The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has been reminding drivers for months to change the emergency triangles for the V-16 light beacons, and now, on July 1, the beacons will finally become authorised as fully legal to use on the road.
As the DGT brings in these beacons, it has assured that no fines will be issued for failing to comply with using them, not until 2026, but they do recommend drivers to purchase the beacon – which costs between €20 and €30 each – as they are more convenient to use and to transport, than the triangles, and of course, if you have no beacon then you must use the triangles.

The fact that the plan presented by Spain was one of the first to be approved reveals the extent to which the Commission is concerned about the fragility of the Spanish economy, the fourth most important in the euro zone and capable of having systemic negative effects over the rest of the countries.

MALAGA

Malaga cancels its first district fairs- Campanillas, Teatinos, El Palo, plus info on other fairs: {Translation} Updated: 16 June, 2021 – 18:42
-Malaga begins to suspend its first district fairs. While waiting to see what finally happens with the Feria de Agosto, whose celebration is still hanging by a thread, the Town Hall considers the festivities planned for the first week of July in Campanillas to be cancelled.
-This has been confirmed to this newspaper by municipal sources, who have specified that the decision has been taken “unanimously” in the framework of a meeting held this Tuesday in which the groups of the district participated. What is going to be organised is a kind of event in homage to the Virgen del Carmen.
-Unless there is a major surprise and a sudden change in the evolution of the pandemic in recent weeks in the capital of the Costa del Sol, with a continued rise in the incidence rate, what has happened in Campanillas is going to spread to many other districts.
-In fact, other municipal sources have also confirmed that there will also be no fair in Teatinos, also scheduled for the middle of next month. Before these two events, the pandemic also hit the celebrations in Churriana last May.
-The situation is the same in the case of the traditional celebrations in the eastern part of the town, set around the feast of the Virgen del Carmen. In this case, as confirmed by the district councillor, Carlos Conde, there will be no fairs either. On the other hand, work has been underway for weeks on the organisation of around a hundred small-scale activities, to be held throughout July, and designed for a variety of audiences.
-In the case of the western part of the city, in Carretera de Cádiz, the seafaring festivities are also being reformulated. As explained by the district councillor, Luis Verde, they are thinking of a different format as a consequence of Covid, so that the space in the Huelin park will be extended, allowing a greater separation between the attendees. In addition to this, there will be actions throughout the week. Source, Spanish: https://www.malagahoy.es/malaga/Malaga-cancela-ferias-distrito-Campanillas-Teatinos_0_1583843558.html

 

Police smash theft gang and warn of ‘ghost’ technique of breaking into properties: After several months of investigations, officers from the specialist robbery unit of the National Police have made arrests and broken up a gang of thieves that was breaking into properties without leaving any trace of how they had gained access.
The break-in technique used by this group consists of inserting a key made from  malleable aluminium sheets into the lock, which when slightly turned from side to side copied the notches and marks of the original key. From this they made a master key that allowed them to open the door without leaving any trace that the lock had been forced, because, in reality, it hadn’t. Photo:SUR. Full article:

GRANADA

Motril will celebrate the night of San Juan with the beaches open, but no bonfires: {Translation, summary}
-This year 2021 the beaches will be open again, “but under no circumstances can any activity be carried out that incites people to socialise in an uninhibited manner and endangers people’s safety, due to Covid, at the start of the high season”, explained the Mayor, Luisa María García Chamorro.
-Chamorro insisted that, from a predetermined time, no sunshades, awnings or any other type of structure may be set up. Nor may barbecues be set up on the night of San Juan and, much less, any kind of bonfire.
-In relation to this, the Deputy Mayor for Safety, María Ángeles Escámez, warned of the risk of the relaxation of distancing measures that occurs as a result of alcohol consumption, especially among young people, “so actions that incite this are not going to be allowed”, she said.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
https://youtu.be/rjTmb_LL2uo
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.

COVID-19

The Andalusian Covid incidence rate remains 80 points above the national average: {Translation} Updated: 15/06/2021, 14:52
-Andalusia has 1,267 new cases of coronavirus infection on Tuesday, down from the 1,315 cases recorded the previous day, although 106 cases more than those recorded on Tuesday of last week. The community has 18 deaths caused by Covid-19.
-These records halt the downward trend in incidence that seemed to mark the beginning of the week to remain stagnant in the plateau phase of this fourth wave of the pandemic. Thus, the incidence rates remain at the same values as the previous day, just a few tenths down to stand at 184.2 points in terms of cumulative incidence at 14 days. This is still 80 points above the national average and in the high alert range.
-Incidence falls especially in the provinces with the highest incidence. Huelva is down 18 points (272) and Jaén 12 (215). It is up today in Almeria, which marks the minimum with 69 cases; Seville and, especially in Cordoba with 17 points more than the day before, which places this province as the second with the second highest impact of the virus at this time with a rate at 14 days of 225 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants.
-The increase in the number of Covid patients in Andalusian hospitals is limited this Tuesday to 8 more admissions, to total 711 bedridden, the lowest increase on Tuesday since the fall of the third wave in March. There is a clear downward trend in the pressure of care by Covid. However, the admission of 15 more patients to the ICU breaks the downward trend in critical care pressure observed on the previous day. In total, 156 Andalusians are currently being treated in intensive care units for coronavirus.

High infection rate prevents Andalusia from reducing measures and postpones de-escalation to July: {Translation} Updated: 15/06/2021, 20:50
-The committee of experts advising the Andalusian government on the evolution of the pandemic recommended on Tuesday to stop the de-escalation in terms of restrictions on opening hours and capacity for another two weeks in view of the stagnation of the epidemiological situation in the community, which already has the highest Covid incidence rates in Spain.
-After the meeting, the Junta de Andalucía announced that it will extend the measures, adding only two changes with respect to its last resolution of 1 June, in which it also extended the restrictions approved after the end of the state of alarm in May. Thus, it is allowed to extend opening hours for establishments selling and serving ice cream until 1.00 am. These establishments will not be allowed to serve or sell alcoholic beverages after midnight.
-A specific risk assessment will also be introduced in those municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants with an incidence of more than 1,000 cases / per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. It is necessary to make such an assessment in those cases of municipalities with a clear downward trend at the time of their assessment by the Territorial Committee.
-The committee has met on this occasion without the presence of the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, who at the same time was holding a round of consultations with the parliamentary spokespersons in San Telmo in preparation for his interview with Pedro Sánchez in the Moncloa on Thursday.
-Once the meeting was over, the Minister for Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, who chaired the forum, insisted on sending a message of caution to the Andalusian population “because the virus is still with us”. “In Andalusia we are carrying out a very high rate of vaccination, which is increasing, but despite this we cannot lower our guard,” he stressed.
-Andalusia is already the region with the highest cumulative incidence rates in Spain. The 14-day rate stands at 184.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 80 points above the national figure.

Covid-19 vaccination drive in Spain- 45% of population has had at least one dose: A total of 31.6% of people in the 40-49 age group in Spain have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. Of Spain’s 17 regions – which are in charge of the vaccination drive – only Madrid, the Basque Country and Castilla y León have immunized fewer than 20% of this demographic. Since the inoculation campaign began last December, Spain has administered more than 33 million doses, and 45.3% of the entire population – 21.4 million people – have received at least one shot.

SPAIN

Electricity bills soar 45% in the first fortnight of June, with almost 28 euros more: {Translation} Updated: 15June, 2021, 11:58
-According to Facua, the year-on-year increase over the last fortnight represents an increase of 45.4% for the average user compared to June 2020, when the monthly bill stood at 60.58 euros. The average user’s bill last May was 82.13 euros.
-The average user used by Facua in its analysis has a contracted power of 4.4 kilowatts (kW) and a consumption of 366 kilowatt hours (kWh) per month.
-As for the percentages of consumption in the three time slots of the new billing system, the association has taken as a reference the current profile of the average user without time zone discrimination published by the National Securities Market Commission (CNMC), who consumes 45% of electricity during off-peak hours, 29% during peak hours and 26% during flat hours.
-The average price per kilowatt hour (kWh) from 1 to 15 June was 13.62 cents in off-peak hours (including taxes), 18.19 cents in peak hours and 30.35 cents in peak hours.
-In June 2020, the average price without hourly discrimination was 11.31 cents, and a year earlier, in June 2019, it was 13.78 cents. As for the average last May, it was 17.20 cents.
-According to Facua’s data, if the average user’s consumption in each time slot is weighted, the average price per kWh for the first fifteen days of June amounts to 19.65 cents, 73.7% higher than the 11.31 cents in June 2020. The price is close to the historical peak of the second week of January 2021 (from the 8th to the 14th), when it reached 20.64 cents.
-Regardless of the daily peaks that have been reached at certain times, the highest monthly price in history was during the entire first quarter of 2012, when the kWh stood at 20.85 cents.
*Solutions to the “brutal increases”*
-In a statement, the association calls on the government to find solutions to “the brutal tariff increases” that continue to be applied by electricity companies and a change in the new system of billing by hourly time slots in force since 1 June, “which in itself represents an increase in the price of energy consumed for a very high percentage of consumers and is particularly detrimental to the most disadvantaged economies”.
-It also considers that the average drop of 14.2% in the price of the fixed term of the bill is “absolutely insufficient, especially considering that during the governments of Mariano Rajoy it increased by 103%” and regrets that the fourth vice president and minister for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, “has not publicly stated that the CNMC should modify the schedules, with the advancement of the ‘valley’ period to 22.00 hours from Monday to Friday” that Facua demands.
-This body has already pointed out that it is too early to do so after two ministers from Unidas Podemos asked for it, although the government has the power to act on the regulated part of the bill that it controls, the charges.
-However, Facua values “positively” the proposed cut of 1,000 million euros per year in overpayments to electricity companies for the non-emission of CO2 in hydro and nuclear power plants.
-In addition, the association demands “a far-reaching reform” of the social bonus so that many more families can benefit from it and a reduction in the Value Added Tax (VAT) on the bills of domestic consumers, who pay more than 27% in indirect taxes as they are charged the general VAT of 21%, plus the special tax on electricity.

ANDALUCIA

Andalusia will only relax the use of face masks outdoors in the countryside and on the beach: {Translation, first paragraph}
Updated: 15/06/2021, 18:04
-The Andalusian government will not relax the use of face masks except for very specific circumstances in the open air. The Minister of Health, Jesús Aguirre, has explained that his criteria is that it will only cease to be obligatory on the beach, “when we are in our family circle” and on walks in the countryside, also maintaining distances.

MALAGA

Uber is expanding its services to the whole of the Costa del Sol of Malaga: {Translation, summary}
-Uber, the car hire with driver company, also known as VTC, is expanding its presence in the province of Malaga. As the company announced on Tuesday, its vehicles now cover a full 200 kilometres along the Costa del Sol, in the province of Malaga and Cadiz. In this way, any user can now request journeys from Nerja to La Línea de la Concepción, as part of the company’s expansion plan and its commitment to the region.
-The number of VTCs in Malaga has not yet reached its peak and there are already 2,070 licences in existence.
-In the new coverage area, which will reach important tourist locations such as the caves of Nerja, Burriana beach, the old town of Marbella, Bioparc Fuengirola or the golf courses of Sotogrande, the portfolio of services that Uber already offers for the rest of Malaga will be available: UberX, the platform’s most popular service; Uber Van, for group transfers; and Uber Comfort and Uber Black, which offer premium services with high-end vehicles.
-To book rides through Uber, users simply download the app, create an account and add their payment method. To start their journey, they enter their destination and indicate the pick-up point. The app displays the total amount of the trip and the user can make the payment via the app, immediately receiving a receipt for the trip in their email and an invoice that can be downloaded from the website.
After displaying the price, the app sets the minutes remaining for the vehicle to arrive at the pick-up point, as well as all the driver’s information, the photo and the vehicle’s model and registration number. To communicate with the driver, the user can use the in-app chat or make a phone call completely anonymously. During the trip, the passenger can share his or her location and estimated time of arrival with family or friends. At the end of the trip, both users and drivers can rate each other, which is very useful information to ensure the quality of the service.

Recommendations & Requests

 

ITVM Car Tax: Can anyone tell me how to pay my car tax on line? I did it last year but the website they have given only seem to supply information and I am unable to find the actual page for payment. Thanks, Helen. Competa
Email: 37vernonATgmailDOTcom

 

Recommendation: My wife and I have employed a mother and daughter cleaning team for the past three years. They are hard-working, fast, friendly, honest and efficient. They have a car and the daughter speaks English well enough to get by. For the moment, they have only English-speaking customers, either Brits or people of other nationalities who speak English.
One of the couples they clean for has decided to move back home and they are looking for another home to clean. The advantage of the team is that 2 people get the job done twice as fast. Their prices are reasonable and they can also travel from their homes in Competa to a reasonable distance. You’ll get more than your money’s worth!
I have volunteered to serve as an intermediary for them, so please call on 634361756. Paul, Competa

 

Water purification: We need to renew our water purification system to enable us to use the part regenerated/agricultural supply for domestic purposes. Has anyone any good recommendations? Elspeth, Almayate campo

COVID-19

Coronavirus infection rate starts to fall in Andalusia: {Translation} Updated: 14/06/2021, 16:25
-The 1,315 new coronavirus infections recorded this weekend mark the beginning of a fall in the incidence of the pandemic in Andalusia. This is 285 fewer cases than those recorded last week and the best Monday in terms of this statistic since 11 April, bringing the incidence rates down to 184.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 14 days and 81.3 cases per week.
-The drop in the accumulated incidence rate is generalised in all provinces, especially in Seville and Cordoba, with Almeria being the lowest with 66 cases and Huelva the highest with almost 290 cases and the only 7-day rate higher than one hundred cases (127) in the community.
-In terms of cases detected by provinces in the last 48 hours, Malaga overtook Seville as the province with the highest number of cases, with 242 cases in Malaga and 234 in Seville. They are followed by Cádiz with 182, Granada with 176, Huelva with 162, Córdoba with 147, Jaén with 106 and Almería with 66.

Digital Covid Certificate- Over-65s will receive a physical copy delivered to their homes:
-Digital Covid Certificates are designed to help make travel around the EU easier, however, they are not a requirement for travel. The document contains a QR code specific to you that airport staff can easily scan and check that you meet the travel safety requirements. It will include information like if you’ve been vaccinated or not, if you’ve had and now recovered from Covid-19 or if you have a recent negative Covid test.
-They are not the same as vaccination certificates issued by Spain’s regions, which are mainly for informational purposes.
-Overall, they are designed to save you time and effort while travelling in EU/Schengen Zone countries. From the EU’s perspective, it’s a way of avoiding quarantine and other restrictions for travellers in its member states.
According to the Andalusian regional premier Juan Manuel Moreno, the over-65s will receive a physical copy delivered to their homes, because they “are not accustomed to the digital methods”. The rest of the fully vaccinated population will be able to request it via the Andalusian health service website or app.
-The certificate is available, regardless of the type of healthcare you have – public or private via the online portal ClicSalud+ and the app Salud Andalusia. In order to download it, you’ll have to identify on the portal or app with your TIE number/NIE number, Cl@ve or digital certificate. The certificate is available in the ‘Salud‘ section, under “COVID-19 Certificates” online and via the home screen on the app.
-Once in this section, you will able to access the corresponding certificate, as well as that of their social security beneficiaries under 16 years of age.

Wild goats ‘strolling’ through the city of Malaga: {Translation} A group of wild goats have surprised the residents of the eastern area of Malaga city this weekend. The presence of the animals has alarmed those who have come across them climbing the slopes around Monte Miramar or even ‘strolling’ in the street.
-Several videos and photographs have been circulating on social networks since this morning in which several goats can be seen in the urban environment of the city, to the astonishment of passers-by who could not believe what they were seeing. Apparently, the animals have been sighted in Avenida Pintor Sorolla or in Calle Marcos Obregón.
-It would not be the first time that wild goats have approached urban environments in the province of Malaga. Last month several pairs caused quite a stir in the municipality of Frigiliana, where they were seen jumping over the roofs of houses. On the same days they were sighted in Comares.
-In April last year, a group of mountain goats were seen in the streets of Archidona. On that occasion, after entering the town centre to the surprise of passers-by, the animals showed their dexterity by jumping over the fences in their path without any problem.

The Transfusion Centre of Málaga only has the stock of blood for a day: {Translation} The Malaga Transfusion Centre is calling for urgent donations of blood from all blood groups. The acting director of the health institution, Gracia María García, reported this Sunday that the reserves are at a “low minimum”, with stocks for one day.
-She has therefore made an urgent appeal for citizens to donate blood in order to guarantee care for all patients who may need it. In Malaga, 250 donations are needed every day in order to maintain sufficient stock to cover all the demand in the hospitals.
-This is why García asked the public to donate at the Blood Transfusion Centre, located in the Civil Hospital, on Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th, from 9.00 to 21.00 hours.
-On Tuesday 15th you can also donate at the mobile unit, which will be in Mijas Costa, next to Hipercor, from 10am to 2pm and from 5.30pm to 9.30pm. To attend this collection it will be necessary to make an appointment (Monday and Tuesday, from 9am to 2pm) by calling: 951034120/21.
-To be a donor you only need to be over 18 and under 65, weigh over 50 kilos and be in good health.
-For more information call: 951034100 and 95103410.

Google Chrome Browser Conning It’s Users? Mozilla Says Google’s New Ad Tech “FLoC” Doesn’t Protect User Privacy: Google’s upcoming plans to replace third-party cookies with a less invasive ad targeted mechanism have a number of issues that could defeat its privacy objectives and allow for significant linkability of user behavior, possibly even identifying individual users.
-Despite its promise to offer a greater degree of anonymity, Google’s proposals for Chrome have been met with stiff resistance from regulators, privacy advocates, publishers, and every major browser that uses the open-source Chromium project, including Brave, Vivaldi, Opera, and Microsoft Edge. “The worst aspect of FLoC is that it materially harms user privacy, under the guise of being privacy-friendly,” Brave said in April.
-The “privacy-safe ad targeting” method has also come under the scanner from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which called FLoC a “terrible idea…that can lower the barrier to companies gathering information about users” the EFF said.

Android Users- Update Your Android System & All Apps Now: Multiple critical security flaws have been disclosed in Samsung’s pre-installed Android apps, which, if successfully exploited, could allow adversaries access to personal data without users’ consent and take control of the devices.
These bugs allow an attacker to access and edit the victim’s contacts, calls, SMS/MMS, install arbitrary apps with device administrator rights, or read and write arbitrary files on behalf of a system user which could change the device’s settings, says Sergey Toshin, founder of mobile security startup Oversecured.

Three reasons you shouldn’t install the iOS 15 beta on your iPhone yet: A beta is called that because it’s not finished and there are bound to be issues. For example, the second beta of iOS 14.7 includes an issue that causes some iPhones to not recognize the SIM card inside the phone. Without a SIM card, your phone may as well be an iPod Touch.
Bugs and issues just like that will surely crop up in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. And even if they don’t completely stop you from using your iPhone or iPad, the bugs will still be annoying and could mean the difference between getting work done and reliably sending messages, or having a new paperweight.

Israel’s Knesset convenes to vote on new government that will end Netanyahu’s rule: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s record 12-year hold on power was set to end on Sunday when parliament votes on a new government, ushering in an administration that has pledged to heal a nation bitterly divided over his departure.
Naftali Bennett, a hawkish hi-tech millionaire, was poised to replace him as head of a new government of unlikely allies that include left-wing, centrist and Arab legislators, which he cobbled together with opposition leader Yair Lapid.

Running Appliances At Night To Save On Power Bill Can Be Risky: Most towns in Spain already have penalties set out in their by-laws for excessive noise overnight. In many places this even includes the use of electrical appliances like tumble dryers or washing machines.
These electrical appliances can exceed the limits which have been put in place to ensure that residents are able to rest peacefully at night.
In Malaga there are noise restrictions in place which prohibit: “any activity that disturbs the rest of others inside the home during the night, such as parties, games, dragging furniture and belongings, use of noisy electrical appliances, etc” as reported Malaga Hoy.
“I don’t rule out the possibility that there may be some isolated cases, but I don’t think it will be generalised, we’ll have to see what happens in the coming months”, explains Gemma del Corral, councillor for environmental sustainability. Despite this, she is clear in questioning the new electricity tariffs, pointing out that “they obviously do not incentivise or protect the right to rest, quite the opposite”.
(Note: Some sources are suggesting you should not run large appliances at night while you sleep, as these devices occasionally malfunction and can cause fires. If this happens when you are sleeping you will not be able to react as quickly as if you were awake. -Ed.)

Recommendations & Requests

 

The new 2.0TD Electricity tariff: The new tariff is now in operation (from 1 June), and has been launched in Summer. Endesa have stated this will apply “for both Summer and Winter”, which presumably means, for example, the cheap slot of 00:00 – 08:00 will remain the same, irrespective of the season.
This does mean that it’s up to consumers to shift their time-switches each time we change from Summer to Winter, in order for appliances to remain completely within the low-cost slot.
One way around this is to avoid programming your appliances into the first hour of the 00:00 – 08:00 slot, i.e. use 01:00 to 08:00 for energy-hungry devices like pool pumps, washing machines, dishwashers and water heating.
This, unsurprisingly, hasn’t been part of Endesa’s sparse advice.
Thanks, Best regards, Stevie / Chris Gregory, Sayalonga
steviegregory01 AT hotmail d0T com

 

Recommendation: I have been delighted with the service of one of your sponsors, Warren at CarCleanMalaga. 
Having failed the ITV for our camper van because of faded headlights, I noted the service for cleaning headlight covers, as part of the regular advert for CarCleanMalaga on DigameXtra.
Warren did a great job, and we passed the subsequent ITV. Accordingly, I asked Warren if he could do a valet and major paint job on the van, and once again, he did a tremendous job for a good price, also rectifying problems with window seals around the van. We were delighted, and I would enthusiastically recommend his services to others.
Thanks, Bill Alexander, mabilica AT btinternet D0T com (CarCleanMalaga’s contact details can be found everyday in the Sponsors Section of DigameXtra.)

Thirty-two municipalities in Málaga are free of Covid in the past 14 days and 19, at extreme risk: {Translation} Updated: 11 June, 2021 – 07:15
-There are 32 municipalities in Malaga without Covid cases in the last 14 days. Among them, Atajate, which remains the only one in the province that has not registered any positive cases in the entire pandemic. On the other side of the scale are those at extreme risk of the spread of the pathogen, which are 19 in total, according to data from the Junta on Thursday 10 June.
-Most of the localities that have not reported Covid infection in the last two weeks are small towns in the Serrania and Axarquia. On the other hand, in the Costa del Sol Health District – where large urban conglomerates are concentrated – there is no municipality with zero cases. On the other hand, none of them are at extreme risk.
-Opposite the towns without Covid are those that are at extreme risk because they exceed 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In total, there are 19 in this category. These are, according to the figures of the Consejería de Salud y Familias, Alfarnatejo (274.7), Colmenar (264.0), Frigiliana (326.6), Nerja (269.6), Ríogordo (330.5), Salares (578.0), Almargen (308.2), Antequera (525.2), Campillos (286.2), Villanueva del Rosario (386.7), Arriate (441.0), Gaucín (1. 888.0), Jimera de Líbar (527.7), Jubrique (382.4), Montecorto (341.3), Álora (350.8), Alozaina (1,067.4), Cártama (377.7) and Monda (259.5).

Those hospitalized for Covid fall to 90 in Malaga, the lowest figure in 10 months: {Translation} Updated: 11 June, 2021 – 13:45
-More Covid infections but fewer hospitalisations – up to a total of 90 in the province’s hospitals. This is the main conclusion drawn from the latest report released by the Ministry of Health and Families of the Andalusian Regional Government. In the last 24 hours, 274 positive PCR results have been detected in the province of Malaga. This is the highest figure since Monday, when there were 291.
-The positive note in Friday’s report refers to the number of hospitalised patients, which has fallen to 90, the lowest since the end of August. Of the total number of patients, 11 are in intensive care due to the seriousness of their condition. On the 25th of that month, 82 people were hospitalised after being infected with Covid, six of them in the ICU. Four days later, the number of hospitalisations increased and 130 patients were bedridden in one of the centres. Eleven of them, five more than just a few days earlier, were in serious condition.
-The day has left a new death. A total of 1,656 people have now lost their lives as a result of the virus. The number of people who have managed to overcome the disease since the beginning of the pandemic, in March 2020, is now 98,255, after adding another 204 recovered this last day, 70 less than the new infections counted in these 24 hours.
-As for the cumulative incidence rate, it continues to rise, although it continues to do so steadily. This Friday, with 163.6 infected per 100,000 inhabitants, it is up 2.2 points in the province compared to the previous day. With this number, it remains at high risk. This range is that in which the incidence is greater than 150 and less than or equal to 250. Until 4 June, the province was at medium level, having a rate greater than 50 and less than or equal to 150.
-For the last two weeks, the number of new infections has been increasing every day in the province of Malaga. In one day, from Wednesday to Thursday, it has barely increased by 0.4 from 161.0 to 161.4. Very little; it could be said that the rate is almost stabilised. But compared with 28 May last year, it is almost 36 points higher. Since then it has increased by a few tenths of a point every day. Then it was 125.6 and now it stands at 161.4.

EU adds another rare blood condition as side effect of AstraZeneca shot:
-Europe’s drug regulator on Friday identified another very rare blood condition as a potential side effect of AstraZeneca’s (AZN.L) COVID-19 vaccine and said it was looking into cases of heart inflammation after inoculation with all coronavirus shots.
-The European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) safety committee said that capillary leak syndrome (CLS) must be added as a new side effect to labelling on AstraZeneca’s vaccine, known as Vaxzevria. People who had previously sustained the condition, where fluids leak from the smallest blood vessels causing swelling and a drop in blood pressure, should not receive the shot, the EMA added.
-Separately, the EMA said it was continuing its probe into cases of heart inflammation known as myocarditis and pericarditis, primarily following inoculation with the Pfizer/BioNTech (PFE.N), (22UAy.DE) and Moderna mRNA shots, but also after the J&J (JNJ.N) and AstraZeneca vaccines. Israel’s Health Ministry said this month it had found a likely link to the condition in young men who received the Pfizer/BioNTech shot. Full article:

SPAIN

The conservative majority of the Constitutional Court is preparing to overturn the previous state of alarm at the request of Vox after revising its position: {Translation, 1st paragraph only}
The majority of conservative magistrates of the Constitutional Court are preparing to impose their criteria on the state of alarm and thus overturn the measure previously imposed by the government of Pedro Sánchez to fight the coronavirus pandemic at the height of the health emergency. The decision will be adopted in the plenary session scheduled for the 22nd and responds to the appeal filed by Vox against the first state of alarm decreed by the executive of Pedro Sánchez and which imposed home confinement to fight the pandemic. The change of rapporteur, now Pedro González Trevijano, is at the origin of this turn of events which, in all likelihood, will conclude in a reproach of unconstitutionality to the state of alarm decree that will have consequences on the effects of its application, such as the fines imposed for non-compliance, legal sources explain.

French Open 2021 – Novak Djokovic serves up one of his best-ever matches to oust Rafael Nadal in semis stunner: In arguably one of the best matches of his career, top-seeded Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal 3-6, 6-3, 7-6, 6-2 to end the King of Clay’s bid for a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title and hand Nadal just his third-ever loss at Roland Garros.
We all know Nadal losing in Paris doesn’t happen often. Along with that 105-3 career record on the Paris clay, Nadal was 26-0 once reaching the semifinals at Roland Garros. But Djokovic is now the only player to beat Nadal twice here.

Tennis News- French Open: Stefanos Tsitsipas went from way ahead to suddenly stuck in a five-set struggle against Alexander Zverev at the French Open on Friday before emerging to earn his first berth in a Grand Slam final.
The fifth-seeded Tsitsipas entered with an 0-3 record in major semifinals and it seemed as if he might let this one slip away, too, until a late surge carried him to the 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-3 victory after more than 3 1/2 hours at Court Philippe Chatrier.
On Sunday, Tsitsipas will face 13-time Roland Garros champion Nadal or top-seeded Novak Djokovic for the championship on the red clay.
Nadal and Djokovic were scheduled to face each other for the 58th time later Friday. Full article: https://apnews.com/article/europe-french-open-tennis-sports-b6769b3b99a8e5fa74b605382cb057b1

COVID-19

This is the map of Andalucía levels by preventative health districts –  from this midnight and their corresponding measures.  FB link

 

The Axarquia region remains at level 1 of the Health Alert for Covid-19: {Translation} Updated: 10June21, 10:30.
-The health district of Axarquia and the health district of Malaga to which the 21 villages of the Axarquia region belong remain this Thursday at level 1 health alert for coronavirus. This has been determined by the Territorial Committee for High Impact Public Health Alerts in Malaga, which met this Wednesday, 9 June, by telematic means.
-In this sense, the Axarquia health district has lowered its rate compared to last week, going from 108.1 the previous week to the current 99.3. However, the health district of Malaga, to which the towns of Macharaviaya, Moclinejo, Rincon de la Victoria and Totalan belong, has gone up from 120.1 to the current rate of 136.1.
-Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than a year ago, 8,173 people have been admitted to hospital in the province of Malaga, 784 to the ICU. The number of recovered patients is 97,737, after adding 268; and the number of deaths is 1,653.

SPAIN

Spain’s regions given total freedom to decide their Covid hospitality and nightlife measures: The Ministry of Health and Spain’s regions have unanimously agreed a proposal that gives the latter absolute freedom in deciding their own coronavirus control measures in the hospitality sector this summer. The department, headed by Carolina Darias, did a last-minute U-turn and also agreed to allow the regions to make decisions about nightlife restrictions which the minister had previously flagged as “non-negotiable”.

Top Court To Debate If First State Of Alarm Was Unconstitutional: The Constitutional Court will debate if Spain’s first State of Alarm, declared by President Pedro Sanchez on March 14, 2020, was legal or illegal. The court will hold its session on June 22 in plenary to study a proposal that that the restrictions on the mobility in the first months of the pandemic violated fundamental rights.
“If the government wanted to suspend fundamental rights, it would need to go to a state of exception and it did not do so because for then it would have to have gone to Congress,” Vox argued.

The “hippies” of the ‘Rainbow Family’ who camp freely in La Rioja handed 76  sanctions: {Translation}
-The Guardia Civil in La Rioja has issued 76 reports/complaints to the organisers and participants of the international “Rainbow Gathering – Rainbow Family” movement associated with the “hippie” lifestyle, which this year was held in La Rioja, in the remote enclave of the Portilla valley, about five kilometres southwest of Viniegra de Abajo and about three kilometres from the border with Castilla y León.
-The exact campsite can only be reached on foot for the last two kilometres. Another 70 members of the “Familia Arcoíris” avoided the sanction by leaving the site during the summons of the Guardia Civil officers.
-The reports/complaints have been processed for flagrant breaches of:
*Law for the Protection and Development of the Forestry Heritage of La Rioja, which prohibits free camping in all public utility forests in La Rioja and the setting of fires.
*Law on Forestry for driving off-road and parking vehicles off-road on vegetation cover.
*Law for the Protection of Citizen Security for the allegation of false or inaccurate data in identification processes.
*State and Autonomous Community legislation on health prevention and containment in relation to Covid-19, for groups of people not living together, not wearing masks and not keeping a safe distance.
-Since the arrival of the “Rainbow Family”, agents of the Armed Institute have carried out a “very exhaustive” monitoring of the meeting, which was attended at its peak by nearly two hundred people – men, women and children – of different ages and from different parts of Europe.
-The controls set up in the area prevented another 54 members of the “Rainbow Family” from arriving at the campsite. For the total control of this “hippie” commune it was necessary to mobilise a Civil Guard Air Service helicopter, as well as the Citizen Security Service Units, the Nature Protection Service, the Cynological Service with dogs specialised in the detection of narcotic substances and the Mountain Rescue and Intervention Team.
-The presence of minors in the illegal encampment also motivated their communication to the Social Services of the Government of La Rioja, not only because of a schooling issue, but also because of the very bad sanitary and health conditions.

MALAGA

Two cameras on the Costa del Sol in Spain’s top five for catching speeding drivers:
-Malaga province has the dubious honour of seeing two of its speed cameras in the top five for collecting fines in the entire country.
-In fact, the one that has been at kilometre 246 of the A-7 for two decades, heading in the direction of Barcelona, with a speed limit of 80 kilometres per hour, is the one that caught most speeding drivers in the whole of the country in 2020, with 48,771 – an average of 133.25 per day.
-The other is located just ten kilometres away at marker 256 of the A-7, in Torre de Benagalbón, in the municipality of Rincón de la Victoria, but on the Cadiz carriageway. Last year it caught 34,327 drivers who were going more than 80 kilometres per hour. Photo:SUR. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202106/10/radars-coast-spain-five-20210610113627.html

Health confirms that it will not be compulsory to pass a test to see Eurocup games in Spain at La Cartuja stadium in Sevilla: {Translation, summary}
Good news for many of the fans who were planning to attend one of the four matches of the European Championship which will be partially hosted by Sevilla.
Hours after this announcement on public radio, the Junta de Andalucía published a tweet on the official channel of the Consejería de Salud to stress that no tests will be necessary to guarantee the entry of attendees, but they will be optional in order to allow people to enjoy the show safely knowing that they are not carriers of the coronavirus. It is understood that all other security measures will remain in place and will be respected at all times with a comprehensive policy of prevention. Source, Spanish:

The future of driving may cost you $8.50 per hour if Volkswagen has its way: VW is considering charging an hourly fee for access to autonomous driving features once those features are ready. The company is also exploring a range of subscription features for its electric vehicles, including “range or performance” increases that can be purchased on an hourly or daily basis. The first subscription features will appear in the second quarter of 2022. VW anticipates the subscriptions will eventually make the company hundreds of millions of euros in additional revenue.

COVID-19

Covid Spain- 30% of the population live in municipalities where the increases in cases: {Translation, summary} Updated: 8 June 2021, 21:30
– The pandemic continues to subside in Spain but at a slower rate than in previous weeks. And although the general trend is good – cases have fallen by 5% in the last seven days, hospital pressure is decreasing and vaccination is progressing at a good pace -, the rise in infections now affects 30% of the population throughout the country. In addition, fifty major cities are at high or very high risk of infection, with incidence rates above 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days. The worst incidences are concentrated in the Basque Country, La Rioja and Andalusia, and to a lesser extent also in Castilla-La Mancha and Castilla y León. The situation in Andalusia stands out: 5 of the 10 most affected large cities are in the Andalusian region.
-Among the 50 large cities where infections are on the rise (5 more than last week), the situation in Antequera, in Malaga, is of particular concern. There, cases have skyrocketed due to an outbreak associated with nightlife (infections are up +319% in two weeks), and it is the city with the worst incidence in the whole country, close to 600 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In Lucena (Córdoba), Ibiza and Zamora, infections have also multiplied, although their incidence rates are still below 150 cases, so transmission is not yet out of control. But it is in Huelva, Arrecife, Portugalete, Santurzi and Bizkaia, which have exceeded the extreme threshold of 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in two weeks.
-At the other extreme there are 12 large cities that are in what the ‘traffic light’ of Health considers ‘new normality’: less than 25 new infections in two weeks. They are Paterna, Mislata and Alzira (Valencia), Orihuela, Dénia and Benidorm (Alicante), Calvia (Balearic Islands), La Orotava and Arona (Santa Cruz de Tenerife), and San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Santa Lucía de Tirajana and Telde (Las Palmas). The latter municipality has not registered a new case of COVID-19 for 18 days, so its incidence rate in 14 days is 0.
-Confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to decline in 711 municipalities where 42% of the Spanish population lives (last week it was 51%). They are rising in 543 where 29% of the population lives (last week it was 22%) and are in a plateau phase (staying more or less the same as a fortnight ago) in 105, where 12% live. The rest are very small municipalities where very few cases are recorded – less than 5 every two weeks – or for which no information is available – representing 17% of the Spanish population.
