The trade union CSIF has called for people not to “demonise” health workers after a recent COVID outbreak in a Malaga hospital.

The Spanish trade union CSIF has called for people not to “demonise” health workers after a recent COVID outbreak affected a number of professionals from the Regional University Hospital of Malaga, mostly from the ICU. According to the most recent data, the number of those affected by the outbreak has risen to 68.

The trade union has called for citizens to keep calm and has highlighted that people may become infected anywhere, as there are currently “conferences, fairs, and events, such as the OPE public examinations held just a week ago, in addition to the increased movement of people that can be expected at this time of year”.


The trade union has asked people not to “blame” the health workers for the outbreak, which occurred a few days after the colleagues attended a Christmas dinner together, emphasising that “these individuals have not broken any rules”, and that they had “followed all recommendations”. They also called for people to remember that health workers “have been heroes throughout the pandemic”, and therefore “it is very unfair that they are criminalised and blamed for the outbreak”.

“This is a specific case which should not call into question the professionalism of the health workers,” they added.

The Regional Director of the nursing union Satse, Manuel Quero, even praised all those who attended the Christmas dinner for having done antigen tests before the celebration.

Marbella police are searching for three professionals who robbed a call centre in the city

The National Police force in the Malaga city of Marbella has launched an investigation, after three armed men robbed a call centre in the municipality of San Pedro Alcantara, last Saturday, January 22.

As seen in security footage, these criminals wore masks, caps, and gloves, to avoid detection, and each one was armed with an alleged weapon. It is not known at this stage if the firearms were real, or fake. They are observed acting in a very calm and professional manner as they carry out their robbery.

Sources have informed that no arrests have been made yet. The perpetrators acting rapidly, barely inside the premises for a matter of seconds, so the short period of security footage is the only clue that investigators have to go on for now.


They entered the premises in a violent fashion, brandishing their firearms, which they pointed at the woman on duty behind the counter. On three separate occasions, the robbers shout for the employee to put her hands up, while demanding she opens up the till and hand over the cash.

One of the men is heard telling her, “Get up, and drop your cell phone!”, as he points his weapon directly at her. At no time during the robbery were any shots fired. Within one minute the robbery was over and the three exited the premises and escaped. There were no customers inside at that time.

An investigation by the National Police is currently underway to try and identify and apprehend the three criminals, as reported by
