TWO of the largest councils in the Vega Baja region have launched new online services in the light of the coronavirus outbreak.
Orihuela council´s website now has a dedicated section featuring the latest Covid-19 news from the Spanish government and the regional Valencian administration, along with what is happening locally.
The site, which offers an English translation, is www.orihuela.es/infocoronavirus/
Torrevieja council has used the University of Alicante to create a special site called Torrevieja Resiliente, which will keep residents in touch with all the local services that are being provided and make direct contact with council departments.
A local newsfeed is part of the site which also has a message board for people to make appeals and requests on.
The impressive-looking portal is in Spanish only, but can be checked out at https: // torreviejaresiliente.es
