Coronavirus - information from reliable sources

Too many and too often!
Two threads concerning the impact of the Coronavirus outbreaks on those walking the Caminos have been closed recently. There have been a number of posts which have been highly speculative and others offering unreliable and untested advice. This forum is not an appropriate place for such discussions on medical issues - particularly ones with such serious potential consequences. That is a matter better handled by the various national health authorities in one's own country where competent, informed and up-to-date advice can be found.

Further threads relating to the Coronavirus will not be permitted here for the moment. If members think that a website offers reliable advice which is directly and specifically relevant to those walking the Caminos then please contact the moderators privately with a link and some explanation of why you believe it to be useful. The links can then be added here. We will also accept and post information from reputable sources about Coronavirus incidents in Spain and any related precautions or consequences. This thread will not be open for general comments.

Update: A new thread has been created for open discussion of coronavirus issues in the light of the first confirmed case on the Spanish mainland. Those who wish to post on this matter may do so there. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...oronavirus-thread-for-forum-discussion.66764/
