Torres: No alert Level announcements until Sunday
The President of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has announced today that the Minister of Health, Blas Trujillo, will announce any changes to alert Levels for the islands on Sunday, based on a technical report for which data is still being collected.
However, Torres said that an improvement that is being seen in Gran Canaria could lead to its alert level falling from 3 to 2, that the number of infections in Lanzarote means that it will make it difficult for the island to leave level 4, and that there are “worrying trends” starting to come from Tenerife which is currently in Level 1, but may have a change if these get worse over the next few days.
There is also an improvement in Fuerteventura that could lead to a reduction of its level from 2 to 1, and the rest of the islands will probably repeat at the same levels, where La Gomera and La Palma are on alert 1, and El Hierro, on alert 2, as the outbreak amongst immigrants that has been contained is not affecting ‘community’ data.

At midnight on Sunday the ‘Carnival’ restrictions come to an end, so we will have to wait until a few hours before for confirmation of what alert levels are applied in the main islands.
