Everything indicates that, despite the fact that the virus has begun to be controlled, we will still continue for another week in the maximum state of restrictions in the Canary Islands due to the high health pressure

The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has indicated that the main indicators of the COVID-19 pandemic this week, compared with the previous two, indicate that “it seems that the curve (of infections) is beginning to be clearly bent” .

“We have achieved it in Tenerife and La Gomera and it is also beginning to be seen in other islands”, Torres pointed out.

The president has specified that his Government will receive the final reports this Thursday, from which it will be considered whether it maintains the same restrictions in force on each island for another week or modifies them, based on health recommendations


At the moment, Lanzarote is still the island subject to the greatest restrictions (alert 4, brown traffic light), followed by Gran Canaria (alert 3, red traffic light); Tenerife, Fuerteventura and El Hierro (alert 2, amber traffic light); and La Gomera and La Palma (alert 1, green traffic light).
