The Emergency Department of the medical centre in Rincón de la Victoria closed yesterday afternoon so that it could be fumigated against a plague of cockroaches.
It will remain closed until Monday at 20.00h whilst the insecticide does it works and is thence properly ventilated afterwards.
But those in need of urgent medical treatment won’t be left out in the cold because such services have been moved to nearby La Cala del Moral, including the six medical staff and two ambulances.
Previous, less ambitious, measures to combat the presence of these pesky squatters, which have the nest in a false ceiling, have failed miserably.
