Well all those unvaccinated party students from mainland Spain have spread it all over the Island probably

Sick of all the blame being put on the youth. It is they who have sacrificed their childhoods, education and have a bleak future to look forward to under what is shaping up to be tolatarian rule. If anything it is the older generation who have made there money and lived most of their lives who are being selfish. Time to move on and live with this virus.

Dont blame it on some youths. To blame is the Spnaish Government for being too eager and reckless to quick to loosen and relax all restrictions over the last 6 weeks for the sake purely of mass tourism, hence money and economics before public health and safety.!!! . The results we have now and its getting worse by day. Adding now thousands of brits, from the Uk where numbers have increased dramatically over the last few weeks and with a government that does not want to see whats coming next and simply sticking to political no restriction dates is asking for trouble and adding fuel on a rapidly bad situation developing here on the islands and in the UK . My guess in 4 to 6 weeks the Government of Spain will have no choice but to send all tourists back where they came from. See Portugal as an example. or currently Italy blocking UK, with Germany and France already blocking.

Colin Last September the rates in the area I live were very very low, even after the partial opening. Then the students arrived within 3 weeks the Kent variant was rampant and we were the in various shut downs until very recently. Three large universities in this are with kids from all over U.K. and the world. The virus is rampant in the U.K. among the young. The reason it is not causing havoc in the U.K. is the vaccine status unfortunately most of Europe is not in that good place. The rate of infection in Spain in particular is very worrisome and the rest of Europe is not far behind at least the European Commission cannot blame the Brits this time

So, in just two weeks the entitled selfish youths of Spain have trashed the many months of sacrifices of residents, dismissed the tragedy of those who have died from Covid-19 and condemned the islands to a slow financial death.

How very sad, but but how very predictable.
