Where are the cases located?
Most of the Covid-19 cases in Fuerteventura are located in Puerto del Rosario, the island's capital.
Similar to the other islands in the archipelago, where most of the cases were reported in the capitals, Fuerteventura's resorts like Caleta de Fuste, Corralejo or Costa Calma, have a low incidence of Covid-19 infections.
Due to its location away from mainland Europe, Fuerteventura is probably one of the safest destinations in Europe at the moment, although tourism is greatly affected by the quarantine imposed by most European countries for their residents when returning from holiday.
