3. The story of an 88-year-old Spanish couple who defeated the coronavirus together. Side by side in the hospital, Guadalupe and José were able to defeat Covid-19, which claims 22.2% of patients in their age group. (El Pais)

4. A Darwin's Orchid has bloomed for the first time in the Canary Islands in the Tropicarium of the Botanical Garden Pyramids de Güímar. This Orchid native to Madagascar is an example of coevolution. It has a 30 cm spur with attractive nectar. When he was first introduced to the orchid, the renowned scientist predicted that there should be a butterfly that would have a proboscis equal in size to the Orchid's spur. In nature, everything has an explanation, and 42 years later the butterfly "Xanthopan morganii praedicta" was described, thus confirming Darwin's prediction. (Piramides de Guimar)
