The slight improvement that Lanzarote seemed to be registering has collapsed in two days. 91 cases were reported on Wednesday, this Thursday 121 cases have just been confirmed, with one of the worst data of the third wave and, therefore, of the entire pandemic.

With the new positives, and despite the fact that 57 discharges have also been recorded, the number of active cases has skyrocketed, reaching 1,121, which is the highest figure reached so far.

The accumulated incidence has also risen again with new diagnoses, standing this Thursday at 390 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days, and at 758.4 in fourteen days. However, in this case the worst incidence peak was registered on January 25th (with 409 in seven days and 800 in fourteen days) and since then it had started to decline, although not significantly, and now the curve has returned upwards.

As for the number of cases diagnosed in the last day, it is the highest since last January 14th, when 124 were notified. The day before the same as now, 121, had been registered.

The coronavirus has left a new death in Lanzarote, that of a 90-year-old woman who was admitted to the Molina Orosa Hospital.

There are already ten deaths that the third wave of Covid has left on the island in less than two weeks and 19 of those registered since the start of the pandemic.

As reported by the Lanzarote Health Area, the woman who died this Thursday was hospitalized in the plant and had multiple pathologies.

The island is also mourning the death of a taxi driver Agustín, "We have lost a great friend, colleague, great professional and one of the most active people in the cooperative." This is how the president of the Arrecife Taxi Cooperative, Lito Guillén, referred to the deceased who died this Wednesday in the ICU of the Molina Orosa Hospital.
