A 21-year-old girl with no previous pathologies has died in Tenerife as a result of the coronavirus, which she contracted due to a family outbreak. This has been communicated by the Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, which yesterday reported 14 deaths since last December 31 in the Archipelago. In addition, the Canary Islands added, provisionally, 135 new infections yesterday, which represents a slight decrease compared to the previous day, with 149 new cases, but a significant decrease compared to the beginning of 2021, which last Saturday registered 259 infections in 24 hours.

On the other hand, in the Canary Islands, 4,593 people have already been vaccinated, 27.37% of the susceptible population. Between Thursday 31 and last Saturday, almost 30% of the target population (users and residential workers) marked for this first stage has already been vaccinated against Covid-19.

The total number of accumulated cases in the Canary Islands amounts to 27,617 infections and 425 deaths, although these data are provisional, since the epidemiological information of the communities is not reported on weekends and holidays, but provisional data are reported that are reviewed and consolidated according to protocols. Therefore, the daily update is activated again today and the evolution of infections in the islands will be known so far in 2021, although the figures so far indicate the beginning of a rebound in the pandemic curve as a result of the Christmas encounters .
