There may be some discrepancies between the numbers, while the authorities are waiting for the confirmation of the origin of some contagions (some of the cases detected are tourists or immigrants to the islands, not residents).
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.
Map to follow the Coronavirus situation in the Canary Islands
The authorities have launched a live map to show the number of COVID-19 cases by island and by each municipality. You can see also the info regarding the number of deaths and recovered cases. This map will be updated constantly by the Canary Islands Government.
Toll-free phone line for questions related to the coronavirus
Gobierno de Canarias has announced on their website that a toll-free telephone line 900 112 061 has been activated, under the coordination of the Canary Islands Emergency Service (SUC), which will respond to requests from citizens for information on prevention measures for Coronavirus infection, possibilities of contagion and false news related to the virus.
