The deceased, three women aged 88, 86 and 64, and four men aged 86, 82, 75 and 53, remained in hospital. All, except for the 53-year-old man, had previous pathologies.

During the last day, the Archipelago reached 70% group immunity, a goal that the Government of the Canary Islands intended to achieve on July 31. Thus, 1,374,040 people have already been able to complete the relevant regimen, while 1,591,323 have received at least one injection of the sera against the microorganism.
Despite the progress in the inoculation campaign, the levels of accumulated incidence in the last seven and 14 days in the community continue to be high, since the former stands at 113.05 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and the latter at 292.33. However, the figures show a notable reduction compared to August 10, when the indicators marked 177.53 squares and 422.94, respectively.
In the course of last Tuesday, 6,291 diagnostic tests were performed among the population. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, 1,945,461 have been carried out in the Islands.
