SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, December 29 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The spokesman for the Government of the Canary Islands, Julio Pérez, has advanced this Wednesday the data of coronavirus infections in the archipelago that add up to a total of 4,910 in the last 24 hours and beat a new record.
“It is a very high figure,” he admitted in the press conference after the Governing Council in which he recognized that all the islands “are at high or very high risk” according to Health indicators.
Along these lines, he has said that the average hospitalization rate “does not grow too much but it is a misleading first impression” because it refers to the islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, which have more care capacity and the pressure on ICUs is also “less” but hospital admissions are at rates that “force decisions.”
Also, as in recent days, the average age of infections is between 20 and 40 years and with a “high proportion” of unvaccinated people.
Therefore, it has been agreed that the islands of Lanzarote and El Hierro pass to level 2 of epidemiological alert while the rest remain the same, in such a way that Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura are in level 3 and La Gomera and La Palma in level two.
Pérez has indicated that if the TSJC endorses the curfew, all the islands will see night mobility limited on December 31 and January 1 and 5 from 1:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m., depending on whether they are in level 3 and 3, respectively. .
In addition, he has said that the limitation of the meetings to 10 people that was implemented on Christmas Eve and Christmas will be extended to December 31 and January 1, and the decision is pending for the Three Kings Day.
