RUMOURS of mass Covid-19 testing were “totally fake news,” Javea’s primary care health centre confirmed. 

Social media sites had falsely claimed that PCR tests were being carried out on everybody who had visited the discotheques including the Atalaya and Khandala between August 5 and August 8. 

Meanwhile, the town hall called on the local population not to spread information “in times like these” that was “confusing”, “Totally fake news” or liable to alarm the public. 


“Always trust official sources, and don’t be part of the problem,” the town hall declared.

She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
