The Health Service does not expect any changes in alert Levels on the islands
The director of the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS), Conrado Domínguez, said in an interview this morning on Cadena SER that at the moment there is no forecast of changes in the restrictions because "infections continue to be a worry", a decision that will foreseeably be communicated this afternoon after the meeting of the Governing Council of the Canary Islands in which the epidemiological evolution of the pandemic and the alert levels of each island will be evaluated.
"The quantitative and qualitative data will be analyzed, such as where the outbreaks are happening and in what circles (family, social etc), but the current evolution of the pandemic is quite stable in the Canary Islands, but the numbers that do not allow relaxation of the regulations," said Domínguez. If this is the case then Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura will stay in Level 3 restrictions.
An good example of this is in Gran Canaria where the number of daily positives has not finished rising: “Incidence indicators on the island are still high and the rise in pressure on ICU beds means that it is necessary to continue taking measures, or at least, maintaining them”, he specified.
The latest data from the Ministry of Health reveal that the Canary Islands had 236 new infections due to Covid-19 yesterday, the highest daily figure so far this month, and a day in which people admitted to the hospitals were eleven more than the day before.
