Spain’s Andalucia Extends Its Current Covid Restrictions – Including The Curfew.
Spain’s Andalucia has extended the current measures put in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic to April 29. The decision affects both the border closures throughout the autonomous community of each of its eight provinces, as well as the night ‘curfew’ between 11pm and 6am.
The decree, signed by the Andalucian president, Juanma Moreno, has already entered into force after its publication on Thursday, April 22, in an extraordinary edition of the Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía (BOJA).
Besides leaving one million dead in its wake and changing lifestyles on a global scale, the coronavirus pandemic has also laid waste to the economic projections made by all governments, including that of Spain.
In pre-crisis days, the country had been expecting to see a 2020 public deficit of around 1.8 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP). A week ago, Finance Minister María Jesús Montero was already discussing a revised deficit of 11.3 per cent.
However, on Tuesday, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) took that further and estimated Spain’s deficit for 2020 at a record 14.1 per cent of GDP. This account imbalance represents around €140 billion, roughly what the government spends on pension payments for Spain’s nine million retirees.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
Coronavirus has not changed lifestyles worldwide, the lies of WHO and the unnecessary lockdowns are what have killed people and make business go bankrupt. It´s the biggest scam ever waged on humanity and it needs to end. People need to wake up and reclaim their lives
