Nightclubs in Murcia area of Spain can return to full capacity this Saturday

Published

on

MURCIA nightclubs and function rooms have been allowed by the regional Supreme Court to use EU COVID certificates in order to achieve 100% capacity.

The move comes into force this Saturday from midnight and runs initially until November 12.

It will be reviewed a few days beforehand and any changes will take account of the latest coronavirus infection rates.

The regional government needed legal approval for the change and submitted the proposal to the Supreme Court this week.

Night venues and function rooms can now return to pre-pandemic capacity on a voluntary basis.

Certificates will have to be presented at the door and businesses have to be in a municipality that is at a low or medium COVID alert level.

The current general capacity limit of 75% can be maintained without the need for people to show the EU document.

The court ruling does not change anything for the general hospitality sector, where the indoor capacity also remains at 75%.

Swiss Army: Switzerland deploys military personnel to help with coronavirus pandemic.

Up to 2,500 military personnel will help regional authorities with COVID efforts.

SWITZERLAND – The government deploys the Swiss Army to help regional authorities cope with the coronavirus pandemic – with military personnel being sent to hospitals, vaccination centres and to help transport Covid-19 patients.

Up to 2,500 military personnel are now available for regional authorities (Cantons) after an announcement from the Swiss government on Tuesday, December 7. Cantons can now request support if their own funds are insufficient, however, they must be able to prove that there is no room for patients in other health facilities.

The government, which deployed the military twice last year to help out with COVID efforts, said it would ask parliament to approve the measure, which will run until March 31.

Switzerland and tiny neighbour Liechtenstein have reported more than 1 million confirmed cases of Covid and nearly 11,300 deaths since the pandemic began, according to The Guardian.

According to COVID data from Switzerland’s ministry of health, nearly 79 per cent of hospital intensive care units are now occupied, of which COVID patients account for just over 30 per cent.

Specifically, the armed forces are to provide support in the following areas:

  • Personnel support in general care hospital facilities.
  • Support for vaccinations.
  • Support of transports of infectious patients with suitable transport vehicles and drivers.
  • Support of intensive care units of hospital facilities by means of personnel reinforcement for the transfer of intensive care patients as well as material support.

TRAGEDY IN GERMANY: A father shoots and kills his family – his wife and three children – before killing himself after his employer found out he had forged his wife’s COVID-19 vaccine passport.

The police found five bodies on Saturday, December 4 in a single-family house in Senzig, Brandenburg, south of Berlin. The man’s children were aged just four, eight and ten.

Speaking to German newspaper, Bild, Chief Public Prosecutor Gernot Bantleon confirmed that the father, 40-year-old Devid R. is said to have forged the vaccination certificate for his wife but it was found out by the employer and, according to the suicide note, he was also afraid that his children would be taken away from him.

In the letter, the father wrote that the employer “wanted to pursue the forgery of vaccination records with the utmost rigor,” Bantleon told BILD.

The investigators found the letter in the family home.

Initial investigations revealed that the father killed his wife Linda (40) first and then his three young children Leni (10), Janni (8) and Rubi (4) before then committing suicide. A neighbour found the lifeless people and alerted the police.

The suicide note, which was said to be several pages long, was handwritten and revealed the shocking motive for his actions.
