The Almuñécar medical centre has been closed after five cases of Coronavirus were detected in members of the medical staff there.
The Town Hall has informed schools etc to cancel public acts with large gatherings.
Consequently, CP Río Verde junior school has cancelled its race involving its pupil running a course through the streets.
Although Almuñécar has the most cases, two have also been detected in Motril, two in Granada and another two in Baza.
Update: I have been out along the Costa Tropical (Almuñécar, Salobreña & Motril) most of the day and have plenty of more information, which I will prepare tonight to go up tomorrow (Friday) first thing. Thank you all for visiting the Gazette for information on developments along the Costa Tropical.
