Tenerife continues at level 3 "as a precaution"
Julio Pérez, spokesman for the Government of the Canary Islands, released at a press conference that Tenerife will continue until next Tuesday, May 4, and based on a revaluation that Health will make, at alert level 3. Meanwhile, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura are down to 2 and 1, respectively. The rest of the islands will remain in the same stadium they've occupied until this Thursday.
Although "cases have dropped" in recent days in Tenerife, the regional executive prefers to keep the island at alert level 3 "as a precaution," Perez said. In the words of the spokesperson, Health will "re-evaluate" figuresand indicators next Tuesday, when there could be variation.
The situation does change in Gran Canaria which, "after presenting an improvement in its epidemiological situation", drops to alert level 2. Restrictions also change on Fuerteventura, an island that passes to green traffic light.
Thus, La Palma, La Gomera and Fuerteventura are at alert level 1; Lanzarote, El Hierro and Gran Canaria, in 2; Tenerife, in 3.
