July has become the third most tragic month of the pandemic in the archipelago. And it is that the Ministry of Health has notified
21 deaths from covid since last Tuesday in people over 60 years of age, the only population group that is followed up in the current flu phase of the virus. It should be noted that last Tuesday another 21 deaths from this cause were registered, a record number of deaths from the seventh wave.

Fourteen of these deaths have occurred in Gran Canaria and seven in Tenerife. All these people, aged between 68 and 94, had previous pathologies and were hospitalized.

The archipelago, at the same time, adds
803 new covid positives since Tuesday, so the accumulated number of infections in this group amounts to 92,085.

Thus, the Cumulative Incidence for this age group at 14 days stands at 891.15 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and at 7 days at 341.60. Since last July 8, a sustained decrease in the cumulative incidence at 7 days has been observed, when we reached
