Tenerife to remain under curfew and groups reduced to four for the next 14 days

Groups reduced to four for the next 14 days

UPDATE: The Department of Health extends the red alert in Tenerife until December 19

The inability to stop the pandemic on the island forces a night curfew for at least one week starting today; Martín recalls that "those who do not comply put everyone in danger". The group activities that in the rest of the islands of the archipelago allow six people, in Tenerife are reduced to four during the next fourteen days.

Yesterday we were told what's in store for Christmas in Tenerife, if you're good - groups of 10 and reduced curfew hours on key dates - but today, we're informed that the inability of the people of Tenerife to stop the advance of the pandemic has placed the island on the verge of being confined again during Christmas (2020's version of getting coal, it couldn't get any worse, surely?), which would imply a new blow to the already exhausted business fabric of the island, not to mention its dire consequences on the reactivation of tourism.

The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, announced Friday that from today, Saturday, and until next Saturday in Tenerife there will be a curfew from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., to stop the advance of the coronavirus on the island.

After the meeting of an extraordinary council, Ángel Víctor Torres has indicated that, in addition, the group activities that in the rest of the islands of the archipelago allow six people, in Tenerife it is reduced to four during the next fourteen days.

Consumption will not be allowed at restaurant bars and all non-professional sports activity in Tenerife is suspended for fourteen days.

These measures will come into force once they're published in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOC), foreseeably today, indicated the President of the Canary Islands, who explained that these decisions are adopted because the cumulative incidence of positives per 100,000 inhabitants is 45 people in the Canary Islands in a week, but 142 in Tenerife. On this island the cumulative incidence in fourteen days is 84, and the president has commented that, of the last ten infections that have occurred in the Canary Islands, seven have been registered in Tenerife. He added that, in the case of the population over 65, there are 70 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in Tenerife, which is considered high risk, the same as the ICU bed occupancy data, which is 15.5 percent. on the island.

Torres has said that he recognizes that the imposed measures are "drastic", but argued that they are necessary because in Tenerife, "with the arrival of December, a dangerous rebound has been seen" in the cases of Covid-19. And he has stressed that these are decisions that are not taken "against anyone" but "because the situation requires it" and asked for understanding and forgiveness from the economic sectors that may feel harmed by them. In addition, he has appealed to the responsibility of the public not to break the restrictions, warning that "even more drastic measures" will be needed if the situation worsens.

All of the security forces present on the islands, from state to local, will be asked to monitor compliance with the rules to tackle Covid-19, although Torres has insisted that citizens must be the first to obey them for their own interest, not only in public places, but also at home, since the main objective is that "we do not regret the loss of anyone due to irresponsibility".
