Re: Coronavirus

The only good news channel is Al Jazeera. --------------- Totally agree. Been watching it for many years. So many other things going on in the world (at any point in time) yet you get the same few stories in the MSM. Normally totally agenda ridden. They only tell you what they want you to know. Ie ...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes population does have to be taken into account. Quoting USA with 330 million and another country with 48 million is different. I am very sceptical about stats coming out of some Asian countries and some African too. I used to go to Malmo university a lot when working and the place is as bad as yo...

Re: Coronavirus

Was an interesting article in the telegraph yesterday "Sweden's risky experiment may yet prove Britain wrong." Their figures estimate that much less intensive care beds will be needed and will have the lowest number of hospital beds per thousand in Europe they believe they can cope. They a...

Would anything happen though Peter ? Depends who they are, Cousin of Alcalde, Son of Civil Guard etc. Expats could also bring a few problems on themselves by denouncing.

Re: Coronavirus

Nice one Olive. :mrgreen: Do they still sell delicious sea food there? My Yorkshire Nan used to take us there. Would like to revisit but a bit far. She used to come back with lovely dressed crab too.

Re: Easyjet

I wonder if the Airlines will receive financial help. Thought Virgin had a bit of a cheek asking. Read two different figures of major shareholders but both average at 20% owned by Virgin, 34% Delta Airways, the rest KLM(Dutch) and Air France. Yet Branson is always pushing it as British. Managed to g...

Re: Coronavirus

Torrox, in the "Campo" As I sit on my lofty perch and look around I see about eight houses, there are more further up the track. They have to pass me if going to civilisation. The cars I see daily five are Spanish non-campo residents and the three English residents )I don't see them every...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes offers of help around here have been amazing. Someone on a local forum posted yesterday that Waitrose was donating all the fresh fruit and veg and he was collecting it early evening and would deliver i to those isolated.

Re: Coronavirus

....would rather give it to an African. Just made me think....I wonder what all the look-see men are doing? Don't suppose there'll be any govt. help for them, unless they're registered as refugees/assylum seekers. Furthermore, I haven't seen any news items about migrants crossing the Med recently. ...

Re: Coronavirus

Spanish friend has just sent me some amazing footage of the military in the centre of Competa in armoured vehicles making their presence felt. Surreal to see.

Re: Coronavirus

Every industry wants a bailout now. Charities the latest. Feel sorry for the small genuine ones I sent the money I'm saving by not going out to two of the local animal charities. They must be struggling without their usual fundraising activities and with their shops being shut. There have been arti...

:Funny there are more support groups than needed in this area. All back to normal except no delivery slots but plenty of volunteers if housebound. I find my money is mounting up as although a bit more expenditure on food no spending on entertainment, restaurant meals etc. Have to call all my obscure...

Re: Coronavirus

Agree Miro. I think this year will be a write off even if the virus dies down. We had already gone off cruises, not what they used to be, but if I hadn't they way infection spreads and how easily ships are stranded would put me off. Every industry wants a bailout now. Charities the latest. Feel sorr...
