Facemask Coronavirus

The 6pm closure will be devastating for bars and restaurants.

Devastating For Hospitality

The new restrictions are being met with disbelief and anger, especially from those within the entertainment and hospitality sector.  Tim Clifton owns a cocktail bar in Estepona and says businesses may never recover. “They might as well keep this curfew in place forever, because there won’t be any bars or restaurants left to reopen after this.  It’s a disaster for our staff, a disaster for us, we’re going to lose everything.”

Coronavirus In Andalucia

The latest figures continue to show an alarming growth in the number of new infections.  Yesterday almost 5000 new cases were recorded in Andalucia, though the number of patients in hospital has reduced to 2764.  The Junta de Andalucia reports that 455 patients remain in intensive care.  The Malaga region reported 678 new cases in the past 24 hours. 5 people have died from covid-19 in the Malaga area.
