Covid-19 cases in the Canary Islands confirmed among the immigrants arriving on illegal boats

There have been several cases of Covid-19 confirmed among the immigrant arriving on the Canarias coasts, but all the persons who tested positive were isolated and the other people who arrived along with them on the same boat are also quarantined.
