Hopefully the day will come when Gipuzkoa Basket will have to knock on the ACB door. “We are two more for dinner”, would say the San Sebastian team dressed in their best clothes and accompanied by Valladolid. We know conclusively that out of the 18 diners there is some not very courteous team that is suspicious of the arrival of the two new ones. They may not be l
The suspension of the league, caused by the coronavirus pandemic, has triggered a wave of Ertes and salary cuts for soccer players and employees. In a competition that increases your income every year. Don’t clubs have a financial lung? It depends. The response of Spanish teams is being very uneven
The most representative union in the public function calls for mass tests to be carried out on health personnel and denounces the arrival of protection material “with droppers”
TheIndependent Trade Union and Official Central(CSIF), the majority union in the civil service, accuses thegovernmentof having ignored the requirements of theWorld Health Organization(WHO), revealed by EL MUNDO, in which it was urged to collect the necessary medical equipment to face the coronavirus pandemic and, consequently, considers that the infections and deaths that have occurred among health personnel “can constitute crimes against workers for violation of labor prevention regulations, injuries and reckless homicide. “
In this sense, the union, which has already filed a complaint with the Supreme Court and has carried out legal proceedings in all the autonomous communities, notes that, despite the “slight improvement in healthcare pressure” that has been detected in the emergency departments of hospitals, ICUs “continue to be at the limit throughout the country” and those affected by theMadrid’s community,SalamancaYCceres.
The hospitals in the worst situation, according to their data, are those ofMadrid,Vall d’Hebrn,Albacete,Soria,Segovia,Costa del Sol,General of Alicante,Alczar de San Juan,FaithfromValencia,ValladolidYSalamanca.
“The materials,” denounces the union center, “arrive with droppers as well as the tests.” And he adds: “Many are still stored awaiting distribution.” For CSIF it is essential to carry out the tests “immediately” on all health professionals in order to stop the chain of contagion and even allow those who have been sent home for presenting symptoms to return to work, in the in case the test result was negative.
The union, despite admitting that the collapse of the emergencies has been “partially” solved by enabling spaces such as coffee machines, hallways and libraries and thanks to the entry into operation of the macro hospital built inIpheme, insists that the most serious problem remains in theIntensive Care Unitsthat they are “300% of their real capacity”.
The control unit reviews the hospital situation and points out, for example, how theGregorio MaranfromMadridIt has expanded its useful space with an attached field hospital but it is attended by the same personnel with the help of troops from theProvincial Institute of Rehabilitation.

To the own cycles of bulls of the ninth month of the year are added the deferrals and extensions, a whole ‘overbooking’ of dates
The bullfighting season calendar begins to take shape … in September.That’s the horizon linecloser, for the moment. To the bullfighting fairs of the ninth month, which are much more than those of August, although August takes the fame of bullfighting, for the sayings and so, the postponements are added.
The Mayor of Alicante, LuisBarcala,has just announced that the bonfire parties will be from September 2 to 6. I read the headline of the news inApplause.com, skewer and enter. As happened with the transfer of the Jerez fair to October, from 10 to 17, there is not a word about the bulls. The mayor of Jerez, Mamen Snchez, did not mention them either. But it is given, or we take it for granted.
September, if you count your own and postponed fairs, it will be very crazy. From Bonfires to the “April” Fair. Ramn Valencia was the first to announce that he wanted to expand San Miguel and make it into some mini-lanterns in some way. A week or so. April 18-27. It would fall this April of September on theFair of San Mateo de Logroo. The precise weekend of San Miguel already coincides with the first weekend of the Madrid Autumn Fair. This usually occurs always. Then Otoo has a second date the following week. Traditionally, but not always, split in two, the otoada windy.
A tour to return feather by theoverbookingBullfighting in September takes us through Valladolid (from 4 to 13), Salamanca (from 8 to 15) and Albacete (from 8 to 17). Although this has always been the case. And we will have to add the coda of Palencia. And of coursethe French of Bayonne, the extension of Arls and the Harvest of Nimes. When Jos Toms is announced on his second afternoon of the two hired by Simn Casas. The first ofMay 31st seems more than complicated.
In the background, in October, theImmovable Feria del Pilar.
SOS in Castilla y Len. Behind the large numbers of the coronavirus pandemic in Spain are realities that, despite having less visibility, are suffocating. This is what is happening in the provinces ofSoriaYSegovia, who are going through a limit situation. They are completely overwhelmed, with the hospitals full and they present contagion figures that are even worse than those of the Community of Madrid.
They are enduring a “pressure” so “great” that the Junta de Castilla y Len has been forced to transfer patients to much larger hospitals in other nearby provinces, such as those ofBurgosorValladolid, in order to free up a bed for new emergencies. In fact, the Government chaired by Alfonso Fernndez Maueco has turned the region into a single health area to be able to refer patients more quickly to one place and another depending on their needs.
The concern is such that Maueco has appealed to demand from the Government more personnel and means to face the Covid-19. Even if necessary with Army toilets. Well, he stresses, in the provinces of Soria and Segovia the situation is “very compromised” by high infections.
For the moment, this appeal has been answered with the Army setting up a field hospital at the gates of theSegovia General Hospital. Work began last week and the total number of beds available has been expanded by a hundred.
In parallel, the auditorium of the hospital center has already been enabled to add another twenty seats and the refurbishment of the coffee maker is also being finalized to make more room.
Comparatively, the situation that Soria and Segovia suffer, in this order, is worse than that of the Community of Madrid. And, of course, that of the whole of Castilla y Len. In Soria there are 620.5 infections per 100,000 inhabitants, while in Segovia they reach 410.1. In Madrid, the number of infected is 360.3 and in Castilla y Len, 241.8, according to the latest data.
The raw figures say that in Soria there are 550 positives and 131 hospitalized (19 in the ICU) and that in Segovia there are 629 infected and 335 hospitalized (23 in the ICU).
They may not seem like high numbers compared to 24,090 in Madrid, but logically the health services are planned for populations that are only around 89,000 and 153,000 inhabitants in the entire province, respectively. People, by the way, with a considerably older profile and, therefore, generally being a population at high risk of income.
Madrid is an “important cause”
The photograph of what this sanitary collapse implies could be offered last Saturday by the directors of both hospitals to the Kings during a videoconference talk. The Segovia hospital has all its beds occupied – hence the extension with the field hospital – and the center of Soria has had to double its number of ICUs – from 10 to 21-. Precisely from here a patient was transferred to Burgos in the last hours for his attention.
The Minister of Health,Vernica Married, He explained this Monday that with the hospitals “stressed” and the beds having expanded, what is urgent in Soria and Segovia is health personnel: doctors, nurses, caretakers and profiles qualified to serve in the ICU.
Because it’s not just about expanding beds, you have to take them. For this reason, the centers with transfers to the “largest” hospitals in Castilla y Len (Valladolid,Len, Burgos andSalamanca).
“Always,” he said, “with clinical and unique criteria.” “There are no longer health areas, but now we work as a network” and “the big ones support the little ones.” This optimizes resources and relieves collapse, although the region has its ICUs “at 80%”.
For the Board, the close relationship with Madrid has been an “important cause” in the high number of infections. People who enjoy the weekend in the village or who are spending their confinement there.
Likewise, the Minister of Health highlighted the border effect with the Basque Country. “A virus that is so contagious when there is mobility also moves,” he said. Hence, Maueco was the first to promote a state of alarm or to request restrictive measures for mobility in Madrid.
Zamora and vila, the following?
On the horizon, it is very worrying thatZamoraYvilafollow the same path as Soria and Segovia. A relief for the province of Avila is that the National Police announced on Monday that it is enabling its agent training school so that in a few days another 250 beds will be available. To start there are already 132 places and soon the rest will be.
Given the suffocation situation,AsturiasIt has already offered Castilla y Len places in its hospitals. For the moment, everything has been in a proposal, there is nobody transferred there, but it is not a disposable scenario because the ICUs in Castilla y Len are at 80%, and growing.
If the situation continues to escalate and hospitals collapse, it is an emergency option. For the moment, the Board appreciates the “solidarity” and the outstretched hand.
On the other hand, Castilla y Len announced a “new approach” in the fight against Covid-19 that consists of “individualizing treatments” and “starting them earlier” in those who have been symptomatic for more than three days, using chlorotine and antibiotic treatments .
For this reason, it has requested from the Ministry of Health medicines such as those used against malaria, rheumatism or HIV, as well as corticosteroids and heparin.
As for the general situation throughout Castilla y Len, Monday’s data showed 5,801 confirmed cases. Of which 387 are new positives. The hope figure is that it is a growth of 7%, much lower than the previous days.
However, the new deceased were 74, almost like the previous day. In total, there are already 516 people. There are 2,276 admitted to the hospital in hospitals and 326 in critical units. A thousand people have been discharged.
Hours after the company in the Plaza de la Maestranza in Seville issued a statement announcing the closing of the ticket offices, the decision of the Seviilla City Council to suspend the April Fair this Sunday has changed the times for Ramn Valencia, manager of Pags : “The events have been precipitated although it was expected. To think otherwise was far-fetched.”
Valencia had planned, and has, a meeting this Monday with the Lieutenant of the Big Brother of the Maestranza and a meeting of the board of directors of the bullfighting employers’ association, Anoet, is also called: “We want to expand San Miguel in September. the extension of the April Fair, if not to a week. But first we have to reorder the sector, coordinate ourselves, see if we are capable of being reasonable and putting something on its feet. hours will be missing. ” In the mentideros there was also talk of moving the Fallas to September, a month even more bullfighting than August with the september fairs France -Arls and Nimes- in Valladolid, Salamanca, Logroo, Albacete … “August was also called September”, suggested Ramn Valencia.
The businessman of the Maestranza respond to EL MUNDO to be in permanent contact with the Government Delegation – “I already have the fertilizers on the street” – and with the bullfighting employers – “we will ‘meet’ by videoconference” -, he concluded. Subscription heifers are also canceled. On Easter Sunday, April 12, the season was going to start at the Maestranza with Morante de la Puebla, Alejandro Talavante – who reappeared after Arls was suspended – and Roca Rey.
The situation for the bullfighting sector is devastating waiting this week for what will happen with the San Isidro Fair. The subscription renewal was scheduled to start on March 26, one day after the presentation of the posters.
The Cup does not give truce. The new single game format continues to cause shocks for First teams, forced to play, in addition, in the field of the lower-ranking rival. Mallorca was already eliminated against Zaragoza and Osasuna suffered a barbarity to eliminate Recreativo, a Second B. Athletic needed the penalties to leave Elche behind after the extension ended with a draw to one and the other big surprise was expressed in Tenerife, where a Second eliminated Valladolid (2-1).
Athletic beat Elche on penalties (5-4) after 1-1 at the end of the regulation time and the extension. The local team had it in their hands after two stops in San Román, but the Basque team survived. Of course, Herrerín stopped a decisive penalty against Ivan Sanchez ahead of clamorous way. Neither the referee nor the assistant, in the goal line, warned him. There is no VAR in this round and the penalty was not repeated.
The surprise broke out in Tenerife. A goal by Sandro overtook the Spaniards in the second half, but the Canarian team turned the scoreboard thanks to the goals scored by Joselu and Daniel Gómez, when executing a penalty committed on Joselu himself (2-1). Tenerife slipped into the eighths after a game of enormous emotion. The islanders live on the edge of the abyss in the League, but enjoy a huge amount in the Cup. This weekend they will play the Canarian derby against Las Palmas.
Valencia lived from a goal by Maxi Gómez after 15 minutes against Logroñés (0-1). The Uruguayan finished off impeccably with his head and scored the goal that was definitive for the current champion to sneak into the round of 16, round that will be drawn tomorrow Friday. Valencia met its goal without great boasting.
More efficient was Villarreal. The team that directs Javi Calleja ended up with a more outstanding Girona of the League (0-3). Funes Mori, Cazorla and Samu scored the goals of Villarreal, who did not overcome the difficulties of the previous tie against Orihuela.
Granada also suffered against Badalona, although it went on extra time (1-3). Ismail ahead of the Andalusians and Robusté achieved the tie in the second half. Diego Martínez, coach of Granada, gave entry to Machís and Gonalons in extra time, which led the balance in favor of the Andalusian team. Gonalons himself and Carlos Fernández scored the goals that qualified for Granada.
La Real, classified
The Real Sociedad prevailed in the tie that matched two First teams. Espanyol, more concerned with solving their delicate situation in LaLiga, fell 2-0 thanks to goals from Barrenetxea and Swedish striker Isak. The Royal thus ended a crisis of results in the competition of regularity, where it accumulates two defeats consecutively. The last one, on Sunday against Betis.
