ALMERIA and Carboneras ports have paid their own poignant tribute to the lives which have been lost to the coronavirus pandemic.
On Thursday the two ports staged a minute’s silence in memory of all the Covid-19 victims, and all the ships in dock sounded their horns and sirens.

Staff and workers employed by the Almeria Port Authority or working at the ports downed tools to take part. Also keeping a minute’s silence were the port service employees working at home, who connected via Skype.
Port Authority president Jesus Caicedo has announced that all the ports’ flags will fly at half-mast “until there is a State funeral” for the people who have died from “this damned virus.”
