The Covid-19 trend in Lanzarote has changed again, and Arrecife is once again the most affected municipality on the island . The capital has been registering the worst figures since the beginning of the pandemic, but it had reversed that situation and two weeks ago it became "low risk", behind municipalities such as Tías or Yaiza , which came to be at the top in relation to its number of inhabitants. However, the situation has been reversed again.

In the last 7 days, Arrecife has concentrated more than 66% of the cases diagnosed on the island. Although the figures are very far from those recorded in the worst moments of the third wave, there has been a clear increase compared to recent weeks. Specifically, from Monday the 15th to Monday the 22nd it has added 27 cases, when the previous week it had had 14. In addition, only this Tuesday it has added another 10 more cases

This has meant that the capital rises again from "low risk" to "medium risk", which is equivalent to alert level 2, which Lanzarote is currently at. The island approached level 1 indicators last week, but has now risen to "medium risk" again, brought down by Arrecife data. The rest of the municipalities are at “low risk” or “minimal risk”, with the exception of Tías.

Behind Arrecife, Tías, the next municipality that added the most cases last week, with a total of 8. It is followed by San Bartolomé with 4, Yaiza with 3 and Teguise with 2, while Haría and Tinajo did not register any.

Daily cases have registered a new peak in Lanzarote, where 13 Covid-19 positives have been reported this Tuesday . Although in the last 24 hours there have also been 11 discharges, active cases on the island have risen to 86 .

The data coincides with an increase in the tests carried out. This Monday about 260 were made, according to data from the Ministry of Health, which is almost double than the previous day. As for the previous days, they had been doing about 200 on average.
