The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands has reported this Thursday that Lanzarote and Gran Canaria will maintain alert levels 4 and 3, respectively, for another week to stop the spread of the coronavirus in both territories.


In this regard, it is clarified that the decision regarding the establishment of one or another level is adopted taking into account the relative indicators on the epidemiological situation, care capacity and public health capacity, as well as the characteristics and vulnerability of the exposed susceptible population and the possibility of adopting prevention and control measures, such as non-pharmacological measures with partial or complete interventions that affect part or all of the evaluated territory.


In this way, the island of Lanzarote will remain at alert level 4 until February 11, during which time the corresponding preventive measures that apply to it will remain in force, as well as Gran Canaria as regards the level of alert 3, according to the Canarian Executive in a press release.

For their part, the islands of Tenerife, El Hierro and Fuerteventura also maintain alert level 2; while La Palma and La Gomera remain at alert level 1. All the islands are subject to periodic revaluations.
