Coronavirus (Covid-19)


We are no longer updating this page as we feel the information we have been receiving regarding Covid-19 is so contradictory, it can no longer be believed or posted here.

 

I have always been a level headed person and tried to look at things from a logical point of view, but no matter how much I try to make logic from the current global situation surrounding Covid, I just can't.

 

The following is my opinion, the rest of the team have their own;

 

I have no doubt that the new Coronavirus is real, whether it is natural or not, this I don't know.

 

COVID-19 sickens some, proves fatal to others, mostly the elderly but does nothing to the vast majority of the population. Does this really justify the level of restrictions we see being imposed across the world, somehow I don't think so? 

 

The response to the Coronavirus has been hyped, and in time, this hype will be revealed as politically hoaxed.

 

In fact, COVID-19 will go down as one of the political world’s biggest, most shamefully overblown, overhyped, irrationally inflated and outright deceptively flawed responses to a health matter in history, one that was carried largely on the lips of medical professionals and philanthropists who have no business running a national economy,  government or media outlet.

 

That’s it.

 

I'm sorry if this offends anyone, if you would like to discuss this further please contact me via email and I'll gladly explain my point of view and share some further light on what actually is happening.

 

Warmest regards,

Steve

 


Latest Update - 22/06/20

We have now entered "phase 4" of Spains lockdown easing plan and the official end of the "State of Alarm"

 

This means that at the end of June, if the Coronavirus epidemiological curve follows the same trend as until now, we will complete the reopening process and will finally be in the so-called “new normal life” or “nueva normalidad”.

 

The end of the “State of Alarm” also means that the central Spanish Government will give all the authority back to the regions. Also, it is the end of travel restrictions between autonomous regions and countries in the Schengen area.

We have just received the following information with regards to the Spanish Government easing some of the lockdown measures which have been in force here for the past 7 weeks; -

 

"Spain’s 7-week-old lockdown is one of the world's strictest, and its government announced Tuesday a cautious, four-phase approach toward a “new normal.”


If they've taken necessary precautions, street stores can open May 11, but not malls. Tourist accommodation can also reopen, except for common areas. In Phase Two, restaurants, museums and monuments can allow visitors up to a third of normal capacity."
