The Ministry of Health has today updated the health alert levels after the epidemiological report of the General Directorate of Public Health,
carried out in accordance with the new criteria of the Covid-19 Surveillance and Control Strategy after the acute phase of the pandemic, based on indicators of use of care services.

According to this report,
all the islands remain at the same level of alert where they were, staying at level 1 or low risk.

The indicators of the use of health services, referring to the occupation of beds, are fundamentally those that mark the severity caused by covid-19, and those that are taken into consideration to determine the level of health risk. In this way, five alert levels are established (from 0 to 4) that assess whether the situation is one of controlled circulation, which would be the lowest, or low, medium, high or very high risk.

In the Autonomous Community as a whole, the daily average of conventional hospital beds occupied by covid-19 patients decreased by 11.25 percent. The level of risk in percentage of occupation of conventional beds

The
number of occupied ICU beds remains at 8 beds on average in the last week and the percentage of occupation continues at an average of 1.68 percent, in controlled circulation in the whole of the Autonomous Community and in all the islands.

The occupancy rate of ICU beds per 100,000 inhabitants
drops to an average of 0.39 occupied ICU beds per 100,000 inhabitants and all the islands remain in controlled circulation.
