More glucose meters across Valencia

Coinciding with World Diabetes Day, the Valencia region´s Department of Health announced that it will double the number of people who will benefit from glucose monitors next year.

Currently there are a total of 16,640 people carrying this device, at a cost of 25 million euro, and in 2024 there will be more than 30,000 people.

This will benefit people with type 2 diabetes, in particular those who need multiple doses of different types of insulin, slow-acting and faster-acting, to improve their quality of life and the control of their disease.

Currently, there are about 450,000 people with diabetes in the Valencian Community.

The session aimed to coordinate and share the strategy, actions and application of European funds for disaster risk management in Spain.

The general director of the Natural and Animal Environment, Raúl Mérida, participated in the meeting, highlighting “the need to coordinate the prevention and risk management policy at the European level”, adding “these meetings are very important to give visibility to the opportunity for European financing in sustainability and risk prevention projects.”

The general director highlighted “that one of the objectives of this edition is to tackle the effects of climate change in the form of torrential rains and flood disasters, as well as forest fires.”

Protecting Bethlehem in Torrevieja

The traditional nativity scene in Torrevieja will be noticeably different this year, with the addition of a PVC canopy that will protect the micro scenes from the elements.

The roof is being erected this week, at a cost of more than 22,000 euro for the lease for the Christmas period, and will serve as a protective cover for the scene which depicts the nativity, along with other local elements and details of Torrevieja and the surrounding area, which itself will cost over 50,000 euro, but promises to be the best that the town has ever seen.

Pavement repairs begin in Santa Pola

Pavement repairs have begun in Santa Pola, which the Councillor for Infrastructure, Trini Ortiz, explained that “these sidewalk renovation works are carried out thanks to a subsidy from the Alicante Provincial Council through the +Cerca Plan and that, although they were awarded before the summer, they were not carried out so far to avoid inconvenience to citizens and visitors during the high tourist season.”

The total cost of the improvements amount to just under 130,000 euro, and although there will be an element of inconvenience in the affected areas, the results will “consist of replacing the pavements due to the poor condition they were in due to the roots of the trees that have caused sinkholes and ridges”, according to the councillor.

Petrol station sex pest in court

A man is appearing in court today in Alicante facing more than two years in prison for allegedly making obscene comments and gestures to an employee at a petrol station in La Nucia where he was the manager.

The man is also accused of sending private messages outside of work in which he tried to arrange a meeting with the woman, and whilst at work, on one occasion he blew in her ear and pinched her on the buttock whilst she was serving a customer.

The events occurred between the months of July and September 2019 when the defendant and victim worked together in the establishment and, according to the public accusation, the man made sexual advances toward her, looked for her during breaks, and got into her car uninvited.
