Covid-19 Daily Report & Figures

Daily updated Covid-19 figures. Updated: 19/08/2021 at 15:15pm.

La Palma erupts

The predicted eruption on the Canary Island of La Palma finally occurred at 3.30 pm yesterday afternoon. No one has been hurt; everyone who could be affected has been evacuated and there is absolutely no danger for anyone on any of the other islands.

UK travel rules relaxed

The UK’s travel rules will be cheaper and easier from the 4th of October after the UK government’s recent revision of its travel rules.

Lanzarote Airport on the rise

The César Manrique airport recorded 68.9% more passengers in August than it did in 2020.

Lanzarote remains in Level 1

The Canarian Government decided that all islands will remain on their current levels; except for Tenerife which drops to Level 2.

Green list? Who cares?

Later today, the UK government will announce its revised travel lists for the next three weeks and there’s a reasonable chance that the Canaries will be placed on the green list. But does it matter any longer?

Six pateras arrive

Six pateras (boats carrying migrants from the African mainland) arrived on Lanzarote yesterday carrying more than 200 migrants between them, one of whom had died during the passage.

Volcano alert in La Palma

The Canarian Government placed the southern part of La Palma on yellow alert for volcanic activity yesterday, after an increase in seismic activity in the area.

Water safety

Two people have been taken to hospital after almost drowning in the seas around Lanzarote over the last few days.

Action against suicide

The Canarian Health Council has launched a new project aimed at the prevention of suicide in the Canaries.
