Spain: Coronavirus alert intensified in Canary Islands for Gran Canaria and Lanzarote

Spain: Coronavirus alert intensified in Canary Islands for Gran Canaria and Lanzarote

Gran Canaria had previously got its coronavirus spread under control with special measures which were later relaxed but there have been new outbreaks and the island is on the brink of also being placed on the highest level unless the situation improves.

“Things are getting worse,” said Lluis Serra, a spokesman for the Advisory Committee.

As a result, stricter measures will be introduced across the islands.

Though the UK is under national lockdown, any Britons already in the Canary Islands or who need to travel for “essential” purposes will be impacted.

In Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, there will be a new curfew from 11pm to 6am, no more than four people can meet at a time and public transport capacity is cut to 50 percent.
