The Government of the Canary Islands has updated the Alert Levels today, March 10, and it was announced that Fuerteventura will drop to Level 2, while the rest of the islands will maintain their current alert levels.
This means that Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera remain at level 3, while Fuerteventura and Lanzarote (including also La Graciosa) are at Level 2.
Fuerteventura goes to level 2 due to the progressive improvement of the care impact indicators, with a downward trend that has been maintained over the last 15 days. In addition, in the last week there was also a notable decrease in the indicators of block I, those related to the incidence of new cases.
The care indicators show a favorable evolution and the daily average number of occupied conventional hospital beds decreased by 24% compared to the previous week, with an average occupancy of 6.1%.
The number of occupied ICU beds maintains a downward trend, decreasing by 19% compared to the previous week. The percentage of occupation in the whole of the Archipelago is also 6.1%.
In the Autonomous Community as a whole, between March 1 and 7, 8,865 new cases of COVID-19 were reported, which represents a decrease of 13.8% in the daily average of new cases compared to the previous week.
These data indicate a 13.8% reduction in the Cumulative Incidence (AI) at 7 days in the Canary Islands. From a weekly average of 472.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, it went to 407 cases per 100,000 inhabitants this week.
