Although it is unconfirmed, sources on social media pages are saying that a Doctors surgery in Cabo Roig has informed a number of patients that there have been five cases of coronavirus reported in Cabo Roig.

However on making contact with the councillor for health, Sr Galliano, he said that he was not aware of any such development although at the municipal medical centre the individual taking the call refused to comment.

Despite this, many Ayuntamiento’s in the region have cancelled gatherings across the entire area, although such decisions were made before the Cabo Roig rumour was posted.

Sources representing the Cabo Roig St Patricks Day Committee, however, say that regardless of any Municipal decision, there will still be thousands of people gathering in the area on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with many having travelled to the region from Ireland, so the cancellation of the parade will have little bearing on the celebations although both they and the municipal authorities would much prefer that the parade goes ahead as planned.
