THIS IS THE ROLLING CORONAVIRUS STORY FOR MONDAY 6 APRIL 2020 - DAY 22 OF LOCK DOWN

 

Google translation of a daily analysis of Spain stats:

Data from Monday, April 6

Yesterday's good data is confirmed and improved. New fall on all fronts. We may have an upward correction tomorrow by accounting for cases delayed by the weekend, but hopefully that bias will be much less for the registry of deceased.

And now, it seems that we are really entering the phase in which the charts with cases and daily deaths do help us explain and understand the history of what is happening. It is less and less necessary to rely on the evolution of the multiplication rate to see that the epidemic is being controlled.

The number of deceased today, 637, by 674 yesterday and 809 two days ago. 13,055 deaths in total. Notable drop in the multiplication rate, from 1.37 to 1.31.

The cases declared new, at 4,237, compared to 6,023 yesterday and 9,222 last Tuesday. The data from tomorrow and the day after will be essential to see if we confirm the takeover of the epidemic. 135,032 cases in total. Lower the rate a lot, to 1.22.

Latest news from the man I look to for Spanish stats

5 April 2020

Notable falls in cases and daily deaths. Today it is time to apply caution with the reading of the results due to the possible weekend effect, which leads to the delay in accounting and reporting of information. That could mainly affect data from new cases, whose official data could be somewhat below the real ones (and the correction is seen in the data communication on Tuesday).

Taking these caveats into account, let's go to the data.

6,023 new cases. It is the minimum since March 23. 7,026 cases yesterday. 130,759 cases in total. Strong push down of the multiplication rate, to 1.28.

674 died yesterday compared to 809 yesterday. The data may be influenced by the weekend effect, but hopefully little. We were already saying that the drop in new daily cases was going to carry over into a drop in daily deaths in the following 5-10 days. There are 12,418 deaths in total. Also sharp drop in the multiplication rate, which is already below 1.4, to 1.37

As we announced yesterday, we stopped giving information about the valuable evolution data in hospitalization and in the ICU, because the Autonomous Communities are following different accounting criteria, and it no longer allows comparing with previous data in the series, which is essential to calculate well and with sense the multiplication rates.

UK vs. Spain lock down effectiveness

Easy to see UK vs. Spain comparison about strictness of lock down. I have just lifted the data from the Google documents and presented it side by side. From: https://www.google.com/covid19/mobility/

UK vs Spain Lock Down Google Comparison 6 Weeks To 29 March 2020

This is only a band aid being put on a large bleeding wound at the moment. The Spanish one is a bigger band aid than the UK one. The key is keeping demand for medical facilities below what is available in each country. Both nations also need to develop coherent longer term strategies for dealing with this issue.

 

Decision on extending lock down period in Spain to perhaps be announced today (4 April 2020)

The article here in La Voz de Almería says so.

It is official: the state of alarm lasts until April 26

RTVE has advanced this Saturday

It is now official: the Government of Spain will extend until next April 26 the state of alarm in Spain. The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has so decided, as stated by RTVE.

From yesterday but well worth a read (ta to Malaguena on the FMTTM Boro message board for this)

http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202004/01/spain-passes-infection-mark-20200401153740.html

Beyond the headline figure, there is some good news - "despite another day of tragic figures, the statistics provided by the Ministry of Health confirm that Spain reached the peak of infection last week and that the pandemic, after a few days of apparently contradictory figures, is now beginning to slow down"

This though .... "..... this means that one in every 450 Spaniards has tested positive for Covid-19, though the real number of infections is undoubtedly much higher"

 

Message from Linea Directa

I received this yesterday....

Just received this from Linea Directa. Our car is insured with them....

Dear Customer,

We know that things are difficult right now. For some, working remotely from home, but without being able to hug loved ones. For others, the situation is far worse.

Línea Directa would like to show its support for customers, employees and the general public by making this situation a little bit easier to cope with. These are the latest measures we have put into action:
  • We have offered our fleet of 80 replacement vehicles to the Health Authorities, at the Community of Madrid and Catalonia for the sole use of public health personnel
  • Our Customer Service Centre is now available to the Health Authorities, manned by Línea Directa employees with years of expertise, to help communicate with patient’s families and answer queries from the general public about the coronavirus.
  • For policyholders that are Self-employed and have been forced to cease activity, we are providing a flexible payment package so that their insurance premium won’t be an extra burden.
  • For all customers, we are paying upfront for the cost of any repairs to their vehicle or home, and any claims for damage will be quantified using video or photo, thereby ensuring that everyone remains at home.

Finally, we would like to state that our 2,400 employees are at your service, working remotely as imposed by the state of emergency on March 14th.

Even though sometimes this situation may appear never-ending, we are now one day nearer its finish. And as with your car, your motorcycle and your home, that is something we can also assure.

There’s one day less.


Thank you,
Miguel Ángel Merino

Over 100,000 infections and over 9000 deaths now, but "The fact that the pandemic is now heading towards the control phase is also demonstrated by the volume of daily hospital discharges, which is breaking all records. In just 24 hours a total of 3,388 people have been declared healthy. This is a daily increase of 17 per cent, higher than on previous days, bringing the total number of discharges to 22,647"

ADVICE FROM THE JUNTA LOCAL DE ALMERIMAR - 2 April 2020
 

Not going outside Almerimar

For all people not working providing essential services. You cannot leave Almerimar as we are only allowed out to purchase basic necessities. All of which are available in Almerimar. Both pharmacies in Almerimar can order medication if it is not available straight away.

Use of couriers

The authorities have asked for people only to have essential items delivered for the time being. Due to all the problems the transport companies are experiencing.

So do not order any non-essential items for delivery by courier at the moment.

If you ordered some items online some time ago you can still take delivery of them. With appropriate precautions (mask, gloves and keep your 2m distance).

Lock down tightened

15 day paid lock down from today for all not going to work for non-essential businesses in Spain. I guess you can still work from home in non-essential businesses. As long as you obey the lock down rules.

Also today is business shut down day. You can travel to work today in a non-essential business if you are taking steps to close it down today for the rest of the period.

Only 8 or 9 of the 15 days are normal working days due to Easter.

People cannot be sacked now in Spain.

Your business must pay you for this period. However you have to make the time up by working unpaid overtime later this year.

Here is a list of ESSENTIAL businesses:

So, for example, no more non-essential construction work.

Big brother is watching you in Spain?

The article is here:

https://www.abc.es/espana/abci-gobi...abc-es&vso=fb&vli=noticia-foto&ref=&ref=&ref=

The Government approves the surveillance of the movements of citizens with data from the operators

The BOE of this Saturday orders the creation of an application that allows this type of control over citizens

The National Statistics Institute (INE) will monitor the mobility of Spaniards "in the days before and during confinement" decreed by the state of alarm, based on movement data supplied by the telephone operators.

This is reflected in an order published this Saturday in the BOE, by which the Ministry of Health entrusts the Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, the development of various actions in the digital field and statistic for the management of the sanitary crisis.

These are measures that Vice President Nadia Calviño announced on March 23 and which are reflected in detail in the order published this Saturday by the Ministry of Health.

Cross "anonymized"

These measures include the preparation of a "mobility study" of the Spanish applied to the health crisis. It will be similar, and so the order says, to the one that the INE is doing about the population movement in general from data provided by the main ‘telecos’ and that generated controversy months ago due to doubts about the anonymity of those data.


As in that case, the order guarantees that the data crossing of the mobile operators must be done in an aggregated and “anonymised” way, respecting the Spanish and community legislation on data protection.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Health also orders the Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence in order to urgently develop a computer application to support the management of the health crisis caused by Covid-19.

It will be an app that will allow «the user to carry out a self-assessment, based on the medical symptoms that they report, about the probability of being infected by Covid-19, offer information to the user about Covid-19 and provide the user with practical advice and recommendations for actions to be taken according to the evaluation, ”states the provision.

The app will allow the geolocation of the user for the sole purpose of verifying that he is in the autonomous community in which he declares to be. The application may include within its content links to portals managed by third parties in order to facilitate access to information and services available through the Internet.

"The application will not constitute, in any case, a service for medical diagnosis, emergency care or prescription of pharmacological treatments," clarifies the order, "and will not replace in any case consultation with a duly qualified medical professional."

The person responsible for the treatment will be the Ministry of Health and the person in charge of the treatment and holder of the application will be the General Secretariat for Digital Administration.

Chatbot

Another measure included in the order is the development of "a conversational assistant / chatbot to be used by WhatsApp and other instant messaging applications, which will provide official information when asked by citizens."

The design will be based on official information from the Ministry of Health. The person in charge of the treatment will be the Ministry of Health and the person in charge of the treatment and owner of the chatbot will be the Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence through the General Sub-directorate of Artificial Intelligence and Digital Enabling Technologies.

Other tasks of the Government to the Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence are the development of "an informative website with the available technological resources" and the creation of "a central point of coordination for the evaluation of other technological proposals by other organizations and entities ».

In the text, it is specified that all citizens who use the future application arranged to check if they have symptoms may be geolocated, "for the sole purpose of verifying that you are in the autonomous community in which you say you are."
"The application will not constitute, in any case, a service for medical diagnosis, emergency care or prescription of pharmacological treatments. The use of the application will not replace in any case the consultation with a duly qualified medical professional », adds the BOE.

Now some serious stuff - bad news on deaths today in Spain - better news on infections

 You can see details here on the Euro Weekly News site.

 

Well done to electricity company Naturgy

Suspending all domestic bills for 6 months. Details here on the Euro Weekly News site.

I applaud the Naturgy electricity and gas supply company in Spain. They have allowed people to defer paying their bills because of the lock down.

In addition they have added the following service for their customers (Google translation):

"Medical video assistance service at no additional cost

As a Naturgy customer and registered in our Customer Area and Online Invoice, you have the medical assistance service when you need it without leaving home."

My gas is with them. I will be transferring my electric to them when the situation here calms down a bit. They deserve as much business as they can get with this sort of approach to customer service.

 

Details of the tighter lock down about to be announced

In particular which businesses now have to close (probably including a lot of construction is my guess).

Tragic day

With these figures, this Saturday, March 28, the largest increase in one day was recorded, going from the 142 announced yesterday, Friday, to the current 173. This has also been the case with deaths, which amount to 10 after an increase of two deaths in a single day.

Coronavirus Almería

Almería reduces its number of infections for the second consecutive day

    The province adds eight cases to yesterday's positives

    The pandemic intensifies in Spain, more than 4,800 deaths

The province of Almería registers for the second consecutive day a lower number of cases due to contagion of coronavirus. In total, 142 people suffer from the disease, eight more than on Thursday, according to data provided by the Andalusian Regional Government's Ministry of Health.

If the week began with 16 more cases on Monday, 17 on Tuesday and 24 on Wednesday, on Thursday the number of infections fell to 19 and today only eight. They may be data for optimism, although according to experts the highest level of contagion is yet to come.

Even so, it must be taken into account that the less pronounced growth could depend in part because as of yesterday the data for 21 hours are counted, three less than usual. Yesterday the count ended at 18:00 and not at 21:00 as usual.

As for income, the province's hospitals register a total of 65, three more than the previous day. There are a total of 69 people in follow-up and the death toll has added one more case, reaching eight.

The good news, that there are already nine people who have been discharged from hospital and a total of six completely cured of the disease.

Highway checks this weekend

Before the arrival of the weekend, the delegate of the Government of Spain in Andalusia, Sandra García, has given instructions to the members of the #CECOR Security Coordination Committee made up of institutions and State Security Forces and Bodies to "reinforce the vigilance at the entrances and exits of towns and cities in the coming days and that they act rigorously in the face of actions that endanger the population ”. In this way, García has appealed to responsibility and recalled that the confinement order is mandatory for everyone, "so we will not allow unnecessary displacement and unsupportive behavior."

Since the declaration of the state of alarm, 164 people have been detained in Andalusia for breaking the confinement without just cause, which is 12.9% of the national total, which amounts to 1,268, data that make the Andalusian community the second behind Madrid with 202 in the number of detainees. As for the volume of complaints, in Spain they amount to 144,555, Andalusia ranking second, with 20,524 filed (14.1% of the total), second only to Catalonia, which has accumulated since the beginning of the confinement 23,655. 6,823 vehicles have also been intercepted in Andalusia, 194,863 in the national territory.

In view of the data, Sandra García, has insisted that "we must maintain the tension" and for this the members of the State Security Forces and Bodies, Civil Protection, Affiliated and Local Police "will be alert to thoughtless behavior such as traveling to second homes, which will lead to penalties, arrests or vehicle retentions. "

Almerimar Beach Hotel offered as an overflow "hospital" if required

Almerimar Beach Hotel

The story here on the Ideal site has details.Here is a Google translation of the article:

El Ejido puts the AR Almerimar hotel at the disposal of Health

The municipality is ahead of health needs and popone this facility in case it is needed in the crisis

The Poniente Hospital still has the capacity to absorb patients both from emergencies and those infected by the coronavirus, although the El Ejido City Council has already moved forward and has made a series of spaces available to the Health Department of the Board and the Ministry of Health in case it is necessary to expand the capacity of the Hospital de Poniente, located in the municipal area of ​​El Ejido.

Although it is true that part of its staff is in quarantine, due to contact with positive cases, the reality is that the Hospital de Poniente still has the capacity to continue covering the health demand in the region. However, the El Ejido City Council has made several facilities available to the Health Service to alleviate the predictable collapse of the Hospital if necessary, if the coronavirus continues to grow exponentially, among which are the Santa María Pavilion del Águila and the Hotel AR Almerimar.

It was the director of the Hotel AR Almerimar himself who contacted the City Council to offer his facilities, not only thinking that it would become a sanitary resource, but also if they needed kitchens or facilities to meet essential needs. It should be noted that this hotel is closed seasonally and that it used to open its doors every year for Easter, to remain open until after summer.

sodium hypochlorite solution. A sodium hypochlorite solution containing 1000ppm. of
active chlorine-dilution 1:50 of bleach with concentration 40-50 gr. per liter freshly
prepared.

Cleaning staff will use appropriate individual protective equipment depending on the
level of risk considered in each situation. Some must be carried out by people who care
for the patient, and those that affect common areas will be carried out by the building's
cleaning services.

MANAGEMENT OF DOMESTIC WASTE

The disposable material used by the sick person and their caregivers - gloves, masks,
tissue paper - the individual protective equipment of the health personnel - except
glasses and masks - and any other patient residue, must be disposed of in the rubbish
can arranged in the room, preferably with lid and opening pedal. The plastic bag where
it is deposited must have a hermetic seal and must be closed before being removed from
the room.

The mask and glasses must be removed outside the patient's room, where there will be
also a container for this purpose, with similar characteristics to those described above
and with a hermetically sealed plastic bag. After each deposit of waste in these bags -
bag 1-, they must be closed and discarded as indicated above.

In addition, in the next few hours new points will be enabled throughout the community.

These tests, following the protocols of the Ministry of Health, are being carried out on essential professionals who show symptoms of the virus, by appointment.

Recipes

On the other hand, patients who need to renew their prescriptions will be able to do so without going to the health center. So, when they call to make an appointment, the professionals at the health center or Salud Responde will ask the reason for the consultation, if this is a prescription, in the next 48 hours their doctor will call them and they will upload the prescriptions that the patient receives to the health card need. This measure will avoid unnecessary trips to the health center and guarantee dispensing for all those patients who need it.

FROM TODAY I WILL BE DOING A SINGLE CORONAVIRUS STORY A DAY. WITH INFORMATION ADDED TO IT WHEN I GET IT. THAT WAY I WILL NOT EXCEED THE POSTING LIMITED ON THE FREE SOFTWARE I USE TO POST STUFF TO THE ALMERIMAR TODAY FACEBOOK PAGE.

PLUS I HAVE CREATED A SEPARATE MENU FOR THE STORIES. SO PEOPLE CAN GET TO THEM EASILY.

Local Car Tax

I understand that fewer people will be in Almerimar in the coming weeks and months. So they may not  be here to receive their annual bill for local car tax and pay it.

I have just been told the following information on this subject:

"The car tax hasn't gone up since last year. So anyone that hasn't got this year's receipt because they are not here can pay the same amount as last year. The account details are listed on the receipt from last year."

Dog Walking

I am getting conflicting information about how far from your home you can walk your dog. I have asked if there is some clear official information about this. As a couple of people have given me different stories on this issue.

My understanding is that you can only take your dog out to "do it's business". Not take it for a general walk. The suggestion I have been given is that people should use their common sense in this matter.

Also, only one person can accompany the dog.

Plus, please note that you are supposed to sanitise the paws (pads) of the dogs after it has been out.
