More than half of those who died in the Canary Islands with Covid-19 are men

Precisely, the octogenarian population from now on is the one with the highest mortality in the autonomous community, with very similar figures between men (187) and women (186). The same does not happen with the age group that goes from 70 to 79, in which deaths among males (138) almost double that of females (70). The difference between the sexes is also present in the group between 60 and 69, since 79 men and 28 women have died.

In the interval from 50 to 59, the numbers become similar again, with 23 male and 16 female deaths, although in the 1940s, deaths among men (13) almost tripled those of women (5). On the contrary, it happens in their thirties, where more girls (6) than boys (3) have lost their lives. Finally, there has been the death of two twenty-somethings, one of each sex and two children.

In the Islands there are still 2,609 people who are still affected by the pathogen, more than half of them in Tenerife, where 1,703 are located. It is followed by Gran Canaria with 661, Lanzarote with 204, Fuerteventura with 18, La Palma with ten, El Hierro with seven and La Gomera with five.
