Tenerife Covid Cases Higher Than Other Canary Islands

Published on

It has been reported that Tenerife has 136 new Covid cases. Tenerife is currently ranked as number one with the highest number of new cases in the Canary Islands with Gran Canaria coming second with 123 new cases.

On a positive note, the number of new cases reported for all the Canary Islands week ending 20th August was 294. This is great news, especially when we are heading towards a UK travel review, and could boost tourism.

However, the new data from the Ministry of Health has revealed that three more deaths have been recorded, taking the total number of fatalities to 899. The latest three deaths were all in Gran Canaria.

This weekend the SCS have two ‘Vacuna-buses’ in Tenerife and Gran Canaria for anyone who has not yet been vaccinated. It is hoped that those in Tenerife and Gran Canaria who have not been vaccinated will pop on the buses and get vaccinated. There is no need to book an appointment.

To receive a vaccine on the busses, people wishing to be vaccinated must be a resident of the Canary Islands, and they must produce their DNI/NIE/TIE details. Anyone under the age of 16 years of age must be accompanied by their mother, father or legal guardian.
