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. So there's no need to worry if you have plans to come over on holiday on the island.

According to the General Director of Public Health, these outbreaks do not represent a high threat for the local community and for tourists, as the immigrants are being tested as soon as they arrive and the ones who are positive are kept in controlled isolation, while the ones who are negative are quarantined and then retested after 10 days.
