The Ministry of Health has updated the alert levels for Covid this afternoon (Thursday), with Tenerife and El Hierro dropping to level 1 for low risk, given the improvement in care indicators on both islands.

In the Canary Islands as a whole, the daily average of conventional hospital beds occupied by Covid patients has decreased by 18.5% in the last seven days, and stays at medium risk, even though all the islands are at a low-risk level or controlled circulation, except for Gran Canaria which is still at a medium risk level.

The average number of occupied beds in ICU is twenty-five beds in the last week and currently stands at 4.9% which is controlled circulation in the islands as a whole, except for Gran Canaria and Tenerife, which are at a low-risk level. The occupancy rate of ICU beds has also dropped to 1.10 per 100,000 inhabitants.
