The Archipelago managed to reduce active cases of coronavirus to 14,436 yesterday, which translates into 4,765 fewer clinical pictures compared to the previous 24 hours. It will be tomorrow when the Ministry of Health will clarify whether the reduction is associated with a delay in registering registrations in the Reveca information system. Despite this, Gran Canaria continues to be the island with the highest number of affected people, as it has 6,609 people suffering from Covid-19 (2,455 less than the previous day). It is followed by Tenerife, with 5,999 (1,768 less); Fuerteventura, with 794 (570 less); Lanzarote, with 547 (33 less); La Palma, with 365 (three less); La Gomera, with 99 (five less); and El Hierro, with 23 (sum three).

The deaths were registered in Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and La Gomera.
