A NEWLY improved jellyfish warning app has been launched for the Costa del Sol this summer.
The free infomedusa app, available for all androids and iphones, provides a jellyfish forecast for the entire coast, as well as general data on beach conditions.
The first version of the app was downloaded more than 4,000 times last year.
In 2012, large numbers of jellyfish gathered in seas around the Malaga coastline, with thousands of tourists being stung.
The app explains how best to deal with a sting, specifically advising users to wash the skin with water, not urine, as popularly believed.
Those stung are also recommended to seek medical treatment at a first aid station on the beach.
For more information and to download the app visit: play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=es.infomedusa&hl=en or search on your phone’s app store.
