Kulturprogrammet for mars:

 

 

Dear friends,

Yesterday Ximo Puig, President of the Valencian Community, decidided to extend the current restrictions untill at least 1 March.

The curve of infections is descending and there are 30% less hospitalizations but the pressure on the intensive care ward is still high. Presumebly this will take of aswell when the number of infections keeps on dropping.

At the moment the Comunidad Valenciana has got 777 cases per 100.000.

PCR+ following GVA statistics:

l'Alfàs del Pi: 93 (206) -113
Altea: 130 (295) - 165
La Nucía: 86 (148) - 62
Polop: 7 (20) -13
Benidorm 365 (744) -379

I would like to share something really beautiful with you: "The sculpture garden Klein Schreuder in l'Alfàs del Pi"

The video was made in Spanish for 8Marina TV, a local TV station.

SUMMARY FROM MONTHLY MEETING ASSOCIATIONS
27 JANUARY AT 1 PM BY ZOOM
• As you all know, we are living some difficult times. The Valencian Community has got one
of the highest infection rates of Spain. Before Christmas it seemed that Covid-19 was not
affecting our area too much. After Christmas the situation changed and Ximo Puig, the
Valencian president had to announce a range of new measures, due to the pressure that
health workers were/are suffering because of the high number of Covid cases.
 These measures are:
✅ Private gatherings at home between people who do not usually live together are not
allowed, except for carers and those who live alone.
Exeption: volunteers are still allowed to attend youngster, eldery or vulnarable people as
they used toddo. Singles can meet with 1 family or another single but only one and always
the same people.
-✅ Meetings in public spaces are only allowed between 2 people from different households.

- Travelling in and out the Valencian Community is only allowed for "justified reasons". 
- Towns with a population over 50.000 inhabitants will be perimetral confined at 
weekends, from Friday at 15 h untill Monday at 8h, and bankholidays. ( Alicante, Benidorm,
Elche, Torrevieja, …) This means that we won't be able to go shopping to Alicante or go for
a stroll in Benidorm during this time.
• Schools remain open unless there would be an uncontrolled transmission in the local area; in
which case the schools may be closed down
• Statistics say we have got 243 cases in l'Alfàs del Pi, 238 in La Nucia and Benidorm 1028
cases yesterday. 41 people lost their lives in the province of Alicante.
• Vaccination Campaign has started as you all know. We are now in Phase 1 where health
workers, doctors and people from eldery homes are vaccinated.
Yesterday 1.291.216 were vaccinated and 123.697 recieved already their 2nd dose.
• Private health workers who were due to have their vaccination next week, might have to
wait because there seem to be some problems with the Moderna vaccins supply, according
to the newspaper.
• The next group will be the people older than 80 years old. It is not known when this will be,
everything will depend on the supply.
• The Valencian Government has confirmed it will recieve a weekly supply from 30.000
Pfizer vaccines of which 10.000 are for Alicante. There were some problems at the
manufactuering plant that are resolved now they are able to increase the production.
• Many people have aksed me when they were going to get their vaccination. Some of them
are non residents. Residents with a SIP card will be contacted by the health centre. In the
case of non residents, I would recommend to take the vaccination in your home country. In
case we would have more information for the non residents before your appointment at
home, we will let you know how to proceed.
• Cultural Agenda for February:
