The ‘traffic light’ alert levels in the Canary Islands are going to disappear soon
The general director of Public Health for the Canary Islands Government, José Juan Alemán, said this morning (Wednesday) in a live interview with COPE Radio, that: “The probability of a new variant of the coronavirus causing the same problems as before is very low, and it is perfectly feasible that there will be street parties and dancing, probably without masks, at the Santa Cruz carnival in June.”
When asked about celebrations in the rest of Tenerife, he was more cautious saying that, "it is evident that we have not yet finished the sixth wave, which is why this type of mass event in which the measures are not preserved, makes me sad. The virus is still circulating at high levels and spreading, so it's not time yet to drop our guard completely."
The general director confirmed that “before long the traffic light of alert levels in the Canary Islands is going to disappear. We must be prudent in the de-escalation, but at the same time realistic to the evolution of the virus and the epidemiological situation, especially if people continue to get their booster jabs to protect the more vulnerable in society."
