The President of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, reports that the first death by coronavirus in the Canary Islands. Death occurred in the Doctor Negrín Hospital, from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
The deceased is a 81-year-old Colombian woman with a picture of previous pathologies, which facilitated the worsening of her condition. She was admitted to the Doctor Negrín Hospital after being infected by her grandson, who came from a risk zone in Italy.
The Canary Government stresses the need for grandchildren arriving from risk areas in the Canary Islands refrain from visiting their grandparents or relatives who are part of the most vulnerable groups.
