Lanzarote / Covid the facts as we know them.......

There continues much speculation in the press and on social media, I thought I would try and state the facts as I know them today

Number of Covid-19 cases in Lanzarote

The number of active cases in Lanzarote is now 86, which translates to 40 cases per 100,000 , The UK in comparison is 37 cases per 100,000 (For info Scotland is 49, England 37, Wales 21 and N Ireland 38)

The graph (14 day average) shows how good a job Lanzarote (orange) has done versus the Canary Islands
