Disinfecting the Area

The Islamic Communities ‘Ettawba’ in Mazarrón and ‘El Nour’ in Puerto de Mazarrón have donated 6,480 litres of bleach to the Mazarrón Council. The mayor, Gaspar Miras, has thanked both communities for this donation.

The bleach will be used by the Department of Services, through the company Bahía de Mazarrón, to continue with the disinfection work that continues to be carried out in Mazarrón, Puerto and Pedanías in the fight against Covid-19. Actúa and Orthem contracts are also participating, in morning and afternoon shifts.

In this the fight against the pandemic is the distribution of 8,400 masks destined within the area by the Government Delegation and carried out by the Civil Guard, Local Police and Civil Protection.

Within the Region of Murcia, safety measures must be continued to avoid a re-emergence of COVID-19 and phases of de-escalation can continue to progress. It is therefore crucial to maintain good hygiene with frequent hand washing, keep safe distances at work and on outings for sports and walks and wear a mask when it is not possible to keep safe distances.

Make it worth the effort we have all made over these recent days.

Mosquitoes

The Department of Health in Mazarrón is continuing with the intensification of disinfection work against mosquitoes

Work has focused on Mazarrón and Camposol and will continue in other parts of the municipality. To help in this work, it is important for all to

collaborate to prevent the proliferation of this annoying insect:

  • Avoid containers that can accumulate standing water.
  • Maintain adequate levels of chlorine in swimming pools.
  • Protect wells, water butts and reservoirs with nets and mosquito nets.
  • Monitor dripping from watering systems.
  • Pour away standing water into drains.
  • Renew drinking water for pets and birds every 2 or 3 days.

Disinfection Work

Work intensifies on the beaches and disinfection work has been increased in areas such as El Alamillo with green spaces and gardens being adapted.

Mazarrón Council has begun with improvements and arrangements that are being carried out by the Department of Services, Parks and Gardens and Coastal Services in view of the future opening of certain areas in the de-escalation. The opening of these areas must be carried out with the maximum security conditions so that they can open in early June within phase III. It would be terrible to destroy all the effort that has been put in to ensure everyone’s safety

Repair Work

The first works that are being undertaken on the beaches are, in addition to the usual tasks of adaptation and cleaning, the repair of the damage caused by the continuous storms that occurred during April. These arrangements have begun on the Alamillo beach and will be extended to other points on the coast where some improvements have also to be made to restore them to their original state.

Gardens and Parks

Another aspect that is being worked on is in the parks, gardens and green areas, with disinfection, clearing and pruning work. One of these pruning tasks is focused on palm trees in the coastal area where it is planned to plant 20 new specimens to replace those that had been affected by the red palm weevil and that have not been able to recover despite the treatments used.
