So you can be the only person walking along a deserted track in the campo and you will be required to wear a mask. :think:

Re: Coronavirus

Read that they found it in barca waste in january this year but last year is new info. A legit source? That news broke a fortnight ago with all major news outlets reporting it. I was surprised it was not mentioned here at the time. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/coron...

Re: Coronavirus

we havent heard from Beachcomber yet ... maybe I made the mistake of referrring to a 'health crisis' ? What's your reason for pushing for an answer off Beachcomber? He's made his thoughts clear already on it. And people agree with him including me. If you don't then fair enough, plenty of people do...

Re: Mosquitos

What a coincidence, the Mrs read an article out to me yesterday saying Spain was having a bit of a time with Mossies, it said the unattended pools of holiday home owners there is adding to the problem. Makes sense as I know what ours was like after a few months away before we got someone to look aft...

Re: Coronavirus

1) Yes 100%

2) I'm betting that's exactly the case, no way it can't be.

Re: Coronavirus

I truly think and the stats now clearly show it that far more should have been done to protect the elderly and very vulnerable from catching Covid from the off, both in care homes and Hospitals. They lock down 5-70 year olds where the cases of deaths arising from it are pretty low, yet let it rip th...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes Mark same here, it is genuine I now believe. Is it any wonder why people raise eyebrows though about the whole thing? That is the Gov.uk website not the Daily Mail. To me it's incredible to see it there and enforces what I believe still to be a massive, costly and pointless over reaction to the ...

Re: Coronavirus

It may have been posted or seen before, but a friend passed the link over to me last night. It appears on the face of it to be the Gov.uk site. Read what it says about Covid, just a few days before lock down. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/high-consequence-infectious-diseases-hcid?fbclid=IwAR2PgUdlkqbg...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes, the lock down was great for that, gardens better than they've been for years and the "Junk room" we've never touched in 25 years of living here is now a lovely extra room we'd forgotten we had. Only glitch was I made a Carlsberg fueled bid on a job lot of vintage steam Mamod and Wilseco engines...

Re: Wild Animals on the Loose ?

Don't know if anyone else has seen or noticed it but Foxes in Spain? We had loads of them around us at our place there........the noise every night and mornings at the time of year they had their offspring was amazing. But what truly amazed me was the speed of them if you spotted one. We have foxes ...

Re: Coronavirus

Good post DA and I agree with it all. However, my brother and I were discussing me going to see our parents, 97 and 93 years old. Obviously, I wanted to consult him and get his input as they are OUR parents and we both want to see them but also keep them safe. It's a joint decision and I respect hi...

Re: Coronavirus

Lavanda, Mark yes it is difficult, and this is all part of mine and Beachy's perceived doubts about things, it is not just not stacking. Misinformation being the culprit for these thoughts I reckon. A few of the beach/seaside pics you mention have already be called out as fake.......ie one of them w...

Re: Coronavirus

That's because the lockdown is effectively over. Let's face it you can drive your car for shopping, to meet friends, to go to work, to go to the country or seaside and can go out whenever you please...so where is the lockdown? It is for the individual now to make the choice whether he/she wants to j...

Re: Coronavirus

DA , I thought the proposal was 30 minutes for a drink and up to 90 minutrs if you are having food. Don’t know how that is to be policed. Wow, nor do I. I can think of some bar owners we knew who'd have the balls to enforce it and some who simply don't. Another rule which if true will set person on...

Olive, very sad to hear your thoughts there, I truly hope on this occasion you are wrong....and that you return to Spain very soon and normality returns shortly after. Keep us posted. Another question if I may. A good friend of ours in the UK has a nice restaurant, probably 50 covers inside and a lo...

I don't think anyone was wearing them on the beach or the terrace bars I visited on Saturday and hardly anyone had one on at the picnic area i was at on Sunday, including the two local police officers driving slowly along in their car.

That's good to know. Thanks!
