Tenerife remains on tighter measures until January 10th
Tenerife is to remain on “special measures” in a bid to reduce the incidence of coronavirus until at least January 10th.
The Government of the Canary Islands has agreed to extend
the restrictions which include limits on who can travel into or out of the
island, a curfew which begins at 10pm and the suspension of all catering activities
inside the premises, except for ordering take-out.
Canarian Executive spokesman, Julio Pérez said although the
number of infections in the archipelago as a whole has improved and there are
close to 50 cases of incidence accumulated in seven days, in Tenerife the
situation is only “stabilised”.
Sr. Pérez said this requires maintaining the extraordinary
measures that came into force on December 18th, extending the restrictions and
prohibitions that are currently in force on the island. The situation will be
looked at again before January 10th
Next week, the Government Council will meet to assess the
evolution of the disease.
Julio Pérez stressed that he has “great hope” that
the measures will produce their effects in Tenerife .
