Re: Coronavirus

But you have to be very careful with its content as well. A quick google regarding the anti-malaria drug throws up plenty of experts who also insist that we are not at the stage to be using them. I read a couple but I thought this one was rather more interesting because it develops yours while givin...

Re: HITS MOBILE

The thing is none of us would want to pay 30 euros per day for 4G internet use. Having said that, many of use regularly review the service we have.

Re: Coronavirus

From the start we have been told that Corona virus tends to be fatal with people who have underlying health problem so in effect Coronus virus doesn't actually kill you but complicates other health issues and that is the real cause of death. However in the UK yesterday there were 246 deaths. All but...

Re: Coronavirus

I agree with most of that Peter but I understand why it's only local shopping as many abuse the rules and use it as an excuse.
Better strict clear simple rules that everyone understands than ones with exceptions and nuance, which some don't understand well and others just exploit

Re: Coronavirus

We will have to wait and see how it pans out. The difference in the response from the USA to China might give us a clue.

On a lighter note. Taking the rubbish out is now seen as one of the highlights of the day and the whole household is fighting over who should do it. How things change.

Re: Coronavirus

Interesting no one commented when members of the Spanish government got the virus. Judging by this thread the majority of expats are not aware of Spanish affairs. Quite a few Spanish politician have got it but I can't think of any other country's leader who has. No one pointed out that Nadine Dorri...

Re: Coronavirus

I can't be sure if you are correct regarding being refused it or not as my experience has been positive and I've never had problems obtaining healthcare in Spain because I pay social security. However, I have read threads and posts on A. com regarding people's entitlements and until recently just be...

Re: Coronavirus

Article in the Olive Press today, Vox has asked for free healthcare to be removed for non residents during the CV outbreak. Typical short sightedness from that bunch trying to make political advantage .This virus is not racist and makes no difference between resident or non-residents/ The last thin...

Re: Coronavirus

Wife phoned me earlier. Spain is heading for the peak. Today cases and fatalities are way up.

Let's hope that all these measures will see the numbers start to go down within a week or so.

Re: Coronavirus

No there is one Major flaw. Children of Workers on the Gov list of Key Workers and Vulnerable children are being sent to school to mix with other children of key workers and teachers all day long and then go home in the evening where they can infect their parents. To me this is madness a lottery. A...

Re: Coronavirus

I don't think it's a competition. Don't forget though it's not just about want suppliers and producers want, the workers must be available to do the work as well so it's important to keep them fit and well. The UK has come up with what seems to be good measures to protect the workforce and seems to ...

Having a sense of humor is not a bad thing and contrary to popular belief is not exclusive to the British/ I have read that Tim Martin CEO of Wetherspoons has decided not to close his pubs saying that it would be 'over the top'.

Vitoria close to here is one of the hotspots. Strangely, a funeral was the source.

No rest though, because I'm working more than normal.

Re: Coronavirus

This is first hand experience of how it works for hospital workers in Spain, at least in the Basque region. Wife works in the largest hospital in the region. One of the doctors in her section caught the virus and was sent home to self-isolate. They checked all staff, who had been in contact with him...

Re: HITS MOBILE

That's good point. Many of us might have forgotten that these days you have to activate data roaming. I certainly had.
