Covid update: Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura have rebound of new cases
The Canary Islands registered 263 new cases of Covid-19 in the last 24 hours, so the total number of accumulated cases in the islands has risen to 29,631, and no Covid related deaths were reported according to the Ministry of Health.
During this weekend, vaccinations in the Canary Islands continued, with a total of 11,868 vaccines being administered since the start of the campaign, 68% of the target population of the first group. In this first stage, the vaccination of residents and staff working in social health centres is being completed and, in parallel, it continues with health professionals, both from Primary Care and Hospitals who work on the front line of care for Covid-19.
- Gran Canaria registers 87 new cases and 11,397 accumulated;
- Tenerife adds 72 new cases, so its accumulated amount to 14,301;
- Lanzarote adds 58 new cases, with 1,876 accumulated;
- Fuerteventura, with 32 new cases, has 1,147 accumulated;
- La Gomera adds five new cases and its accumulated stand at 207;
- El Hierro adds five new cases, with 105 accumulated.
- and La Palma adds four new cases, with an accumulated total of 326.
Please remember that at weekends and on bank holidays, data is provisional as the Alerts and Emergencies Coordination Centre doesn’t receive epidemiological information from the autonomous communities. The number of new cases is accurate, but discharges, incidence rates, and hospitalisations will be updated with all the weekends’ figures later today, so we can see what affect these new cases have had on that data, compared to Friday as that was the last full update.
