This is 48 more than the previous day when 1,662 were counted. And it is that in the last three days the number of patients in the region has increased, after several days of decline. Most of the citizens who are still infected in the autonomous community recover at home, although 217 are admitted due to complications derived from the virus. Of these, 28 are in the Intensive Care Units (ucis) and 189 in the hospital ward. On the other hand, until yesterday 54,546 patients had overcome the disease and 38 of them were discharged in the last 24 hours.

In Gran Canaria, 410 people are still infected of the 22,752 who have done so since the start of the health crisis. This is 21 than the previous day, according to the data provided by Health. Also, Lanzarote added six positive diagnoses last day that raise its overall figure to 5,572. On the island there are still 108 citizens affected by the pathogen.
There are fewer in Fuerteventura, where 79 cases remain epidemiologically active. There, 2,390 people have been infected for more than a year, after another five infections were recorded yesterday. La Palma also added two new positive diagnoses to its statistics, which already rises to 570 accumulated, although there are eight cases that are currently in progress. El Hierro was yesterday the only island that did not add positive cases, so that its general calculation remains at 371. It is also the only territory that is free of covid. Finally, La Gomera noted another contagion, with which 235 are already accumulated, while assets are at two.
The Ministry of Health reported yesterday that the cumulative incidence (AI) at seven days in the Canary Islands is 33.82 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and at two weeks 67.37.

The Canarian Institute of Hemodonation and Hemotherapy (ICHH) insists on the appeal to the islanders requesting donations of blood groups 0+ and A + due to a decrease in the levels of blood banks, according to the Ministry of Health. Thus, the islands need 300 daily donations to meet the needs of hospital centers throughout the Archipelago. To facilitate access to the donation during the next week, the ICHH maintains operational temporary extraction rooms in the municipalities of San Bartolomé, Santa Brígida, Agüimes, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Government Delegation), Santa Lucía de Tirajana, San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Puerto de la Cruz and Tacoronte, in addition to the fixed points available in the region.

Asked if the Government has mechanisms to force the autonomies to abide by the document, Darias has indicated that the “legal services” will be in charge of issuing it. In any case, he recalled that the Community of Madrid already warned that it would not comply with the agreement that restricted mobility at Easter and finally if it did.
In this context, Darias has responded to the President of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, after it accused him of seeking “promotion” by “attacking” autonomy. “I think that we already have a candidate in the Canary Islands and that is what she is in, in the promotion,” said the regional president.
“I have the president of the Canary Islands, secretary general of the party and a candidate, who is Ángel Víctor Torres, but in any case he will allow me. This, for me, is not politics. I do not understand in politics or in life inconsideration”, Darias has affirmed, who has made it clear that he is not going to “enter” into issues where “respect” is at stake.
However, the Minister of Health has indicated that she will always bet on “seeking dialogue and consensus” and has chosen to move towards a “shared objective”, that of reducing the accumulated incidence. “We are going to improve the data and continue to fight the virus, which is the only enemy. Let us work together to learn from the lessons of the past,” he concluded.

The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, has shown this Friday its confidence that the autonomous communities respect the document of ‘new normality’ approved in the Interterritorial Council and has warned that, if they do not do so, the Government will have to “enforce it.”
This is how Darias expressed himself in a interview on Cadena SER, after the regional governments of Madrid, the Basque Country, Galicia, Castilla y León and Andalusia rose up this Thursday against the central Executive, and more specifically against the Ministry of Health.
Along these lines, the Health Minister recalled that the document is “the result of the previous work of 13 autonomous communities” and not a proposal that the Government has “put on” the table as if it did on the San José bridge last March.
“This no, this was born from a previous work in which 13 communities participated. Whoever wanted to signed up and that is why I raised it to the Council. A Council in which some Autonomous Communities asked to make nightlife more flexible by expanding from 2 to 3 in the morning. Nobody said make another issue more flexible “, has explained.
Thus, Darias has explained that her department will sign the order, which will be published in the State official newsletter and, “from there”, it will study the “measures to consider”. In any case, the minister has insisted that it is not a “party struggle”, but “sanitary measures” that must be complied with.
