Torres is confident of lowering restrictions on the islands this week
The President of the Canary Islands Government, Ángel Víctor Torres, said earlier today that the archipelago "is improving with respect to the pandemic" of Covid-19, to the point that this Thursday he is confident that the Governing Council can "update the measures of containment of the virus imposed on the different islands”.
In fact, after a stage in which several islands have seen their alert levels increased due to the increase in infections, he stated that "we are now in a key week in which I hope we can improve, it is improving with respect to the pandemic in Canary Islands,” adding "we have the Governing Council meeting on Thursday, we will update the measures", implying that these could be lowered in level if signs of improvement in the situation continue.
Over the last week, the rate of infection has decreased by almost 40% in Lanzarote, although they are still quite a way from the IA14 need to go to Level 3, and Gran Canaria decreased by 14% as the situation is stabilising on the island.

Tenerife and Fuerteventura both continue in the right direction and have incidence rates of 30 over seven days, which have been maintained for the last couple of weeks, so could see a reduction to Level 1 restrictions announced on Thursday.
