Covid update: the 7-day incidence rate drops significantly
The Canary Islands have added 1,393 new cases of Covid detected in people over 60 years old since last Friday, with 12 deaths verified as being a result of the virus, six of which were in Tenerife, three in Gran Canaria, two in La Palma and one in Fuerteventura. All the deceased were aged between 74 and 102, had previous pathologies, and were already hospitalized.
With this decrease in new cases, the 7-day incidence rate has dropped sharply from 876.82 a week ago to 651.91 as of yesterday, but don’t forget the one that is monitored the most is the 14-day rate as it is more reflective of the situation, which is now at 1,541.45 cases (1,646.43 a week ago).
However, the good news is that a decrease in the IA7 has been observed since July 8th when it peaked at 913 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, meaning it will have dropped by almost a third if it continues by the next report on Friday.
