According to the latest data from the Ministry of Health at 8pm, the Canary Islands now has:

Deaths: 0 for five days
Total deaths: 162

Of the active cases: 64 are at home, 8 are admitted to hospital wards, and no-one is in Intensive Care since Tuesday

The 14 positives added are all in Fuerteventura among the 39 immigrants who arrived on the island last Sunday, so the increase in cases corresponds to imported positives and not to local infections.

Tenerife remains the most affected island with 28 active cases, while Gran Canaria has 20, and Fuerteventura 14. The rest of the islands continue with more or less stable numbers: La Palma 7, Lanzarote 3, and the rest, La Gomera, El Hierro, and La Graciosa have 0.
