Thus, Gran Canaria remains at level 2 or medium risk, and the rest of the islands at level 1
The islands remain at the same covid alert level in which they were already, after the update carried out today by the Ministry of Health, in accordance with the new criteria of the Covid-19 Surveillance and Control Strategy. Thus, Gran Canaria remains at level 2 or medium risk and the rest of the islands at 1.
It should be noted that the indicators referring to the
bed occupancy They are, fundamentally, those that mark the severity caused by covid-19 and those that are taken into account to determine risk levels.
In this way, they establish
five alert levels (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.
Currently, care indicators continue to evolve favorably and the daily average number of conventional hospital beds occupied by covid-19 patients remains stable. The level of risk in percentage of occupancy of conventional beds is low for the Canary Islands and most of the islands are at a low level or in controlled circulation,
except Gran Canaria, which is between medium and low leveland La Palma, which is at a medium risk level.
Occupancy of ICU beds
The number of occupied ICU beds decreases with respect to the previous evaluation, with a percentage of 2.8%, so it is considered that circulation is controlled in the autonomous community as a whole and in all the islands.
The occupancy rate of ICU beds per 100,000 inhabitants
drops to 0.55 and all the islands are in controlled circulation, except La Palma, which is at a low risk level.
Incidence in people older than 60
The Cumulative Incidence (AI) rate at seven days for people over 60 years of age, in the archipelago, rises 19% compared to the previous week. Most of the islands are at medium risk, as is the community as a whole, except for La Palma and La Gomera, which are at low risk and
Iron remains at high risk.
