"GET IN THERE !"
I know I should not sound triumphant when there are 2 people still fighting for their lives in ICU and 2 have died but a daily decrease of 16 active cases is good news for the island. I know it could all change but we are all short of good news stories at the moment so I will grasp any going.
The one new case is a student in the high school in Gran Tarajal, which is a bit worrying.

Dear visitors, what could happen in a near future ?
The Canary Islands Government has stated that the implementation of a PCR system in the islands' ports and airports would be practically immediate once the administrative and political obstacles that currently prevent it are resolved.
This was explained at a press conference by the spokesperson for the Executive, Julio Pérez, where he added that during the State of Alarma, several regional ministries had already prepared a plan to implement RCPs in airports and ports.
So," Pérez continued, "I think it would be relatively immediate to put in place a system of RCPs once the administrative or political obstacles are resolved.
Furthermore, he commented that in order to put RCPs in origin and destination the operational and financing difficulties "can be overcome", insisting that what really needs to be overcome are the decisions of the countries that understand that this mechanism may "not be the most appropriate" or that "they do not want it to be implemented".
In this respect, he felt that the Canary Islands could not force a passenger leaving Berlin or Manchester to take a test, since it had to be the countries of origin that imposed it. "We have thought about it and are ready to set it up here," he said.
Wait and see !
There are now 110 active cases following 11 recoveries and 10 new ones. 102 are at home, 2 migrants are in quarantine and 6 are in hospital (1 in the ICU).
The Ministry of Health for the Canary Islands has announced that extra restrictive measures marked by a red traffic light are activated from today (Saturday) in three more Islands, as a precaution to contain the contagion curve throughout the Archipelago.
They are being applied as follows:
Tenerife: for at least 15 days.
La Gomera: for at least 15 days.
Fuerteventura: for 7 days.
Gran Canaria: extended for another 15 days.
Lanzarote: extra restrictions lifted today.
La Palma: green light no extra restrictions.
El Hierro: green light no extra restricti
The extra restrictions that apply as of now in those Islands, are as follows:
- Events or social gatherings are not permitted with more than 10 people in one place, whether in public or private.
- Bars, restaurants, hotel bars, terraces, beach bars, must close by midnight (00.00h) at the latest, with no new clients being admitted after 11.00pm.
- Non-occupational day centres will be closed to users.
They are being applied island-wide due to municipalities on those islands that have an incidence rate over 100, so even though the whole island is lower, its a precaution for containment to prevent it spreading.
These municipalities are:
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with 126.08;
Santa Cruz de Tenerife with 120.83;
San Sebastián de La Gomera with 120.97;
In Fuerteventura, Puerto de Rosario has an incidence rate of 95.7 this week, but last week it was 179.13, so this is why the red traffic light is activated for only one week on this island.
"Rescued last morning 59 immigrants near the coast of Fuerteventura" Nearby Morro Jable.
Hope all are healthy, otherwise it will end any hope of a travel corridor anytime soon ☹️
118 active cases in Fuerteventura. 2 recoveries and 10 new active cases detected. To have an objective interpretation of the present trends, a few (4 to 6) days will be needed.
Sorry for the ones I could offend. A personal sight :
The only hope is that it won't be a lot worse. There's no linear evolution wherever you are. It is always an exponential curve. If your question is "Why", it is difficult to answer because many factors must be taken into account and I'm not in the centre of the CI political & health rulers. I can only say thay today’s figures will reflect tomorrow’s situation in terms of recoveries, hospital cases, ICU .... X fingers and be responsible for you and the others is the only answer that the lamda guy I am could suggest you, locals and visitors.
I wonder how many of the 59 migrants will prove to be positive?
My son's friend's parents have the virus, as the mother visited a friend who turned out to be positive,
A Spanish teacher who I spoke to yesterday said that a pupil in Year 1 of one of the high schools in Puerto del Rosario has the virus so the whole class are in quarantine.
Soon more migrants than tourists arriving on the Island .
