There is big problem with drugs smuggling from Morocco and Spain is struggling to cope.
I wonder if majority of intrusions are from chasing smugglers.
Some intrusions are pure provocations, without doubt.

No doubt that some intrusions come into this type although in recent years there has been greater cooperation between the relevant authorities in Spain and Gib

Although I do not see ancient frigates being able to engaged in this area whilst sailing around Gib with enormous Spanish flags and blasting out at ear shattering volume the Spanish anthem.

In order to legally enter Gib waters it only requires a simple radio communication seeking permission which I am sure would be given for legitimate operations.

We don’t get to top too many league tables here in Gibraltar, that’s for sure. But there’s a real sense of pride at what’s being achieved and it’s driven by the tremendous community spirit.”

The US may be closing in on 100 million doses, the UK and Israel are going great guns, but nowhere can match Gibraltar’s per capita figures: 131 doses administered per 100 people at the time of writing

Europe’s vaccine project is an absolute shambles. They are in the 3rd wave and have decided to put the Astra Zeneca vaccine on hold. Absolute idiotic. The third wave is mainly the Kent variant and will be the most deadly yet but because they think there is an absolute minuscule risk of blood clots they are putting it on hold when vaccines are in shortage. I’m pretty sure it’s all political. Pathetic really.

The Gibraltar government have initiated a program of vaccinating the approx 15,000 frontier workers who are resident in Spain.
This covers many nationalities.

The huge majority of the frontier workers would be Spanish from the area of La Linea and carry out most of the manual work. There are also a no. of European immigrants to Spain living towards Estapona who work in Gib who will be in that cohort.
It seems to me that this is a very sensible thing for Gib to do since if they have vaccinated the majority of their residents (55+k) to have approx 10% unvaccinated entering every day is a recipe for problems.

Hi EsuriJohn the population of Gib is around 35,000 so an influx of 15,000 + more if the illegals are taken into account is around 50% daily.
This will become many more when tourism restarts.
So the extra vaccinations are an excellent investment.

My Pfizer jabs took place on 15/1 and 6/2/21

Vaccine doesnt protect from infections 100%, but protects from serious illness and ending up in hospital. Most wont know they are infected.
It is still unknown for how long vaccinated person can stay infected, but max 6 days would be norm, until anti-bodies kill virus.
