The assets on this island increased to 3,539 (+24) after once again exceeding the number of new cases to the number of discharges (86). The accumulated incidence in Gran Canaria is still far from what is recommended to drop to level 2, since it remains at 114.78 (-3.52) at 7 days and at 226.50 (+1.88) at 14 days.

Lanzarote, at level 4, detects 42 new cases and the assets fall to 1,033 (-22) after the 64 medical discharges. The incidence continues to be high despite the slight decrease registered this Monday, with 328.32 (-24.95) at 7 days and 737.41 (-9.19) at 14 days.

Fuerteventura has ruled out two false positives and does not register new infections in the last hours, with which active cases fall to 159 (-57) after also adding 55 discharges.

El Hierro, La Palma and La Gomera they do not add new infections. The first has 27 active cases (-3) and La Palma remains at three, while La Gomera is still free of Covid.

The remaining seven cases remain to be assigned to an island, since they are outbreaks that Health follows but not a specific Health Center.
