How are the rest of the Canaries getting on?
Registered per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 7 days
Gran Canaria - 28
Tenerife - 55
Fuerteventura - 18
Canary Islands in total - 37
Note: For the UK Goverment less than 20 is the magic number
There has been much reporting this week that there will be Covid-19 PCR tests for tourists, at origin and destination, in order to create safe tourism corridors for the winter season
However I feel there are still a few open questions.................
When will it come into effect?
Rumour Nov 1 for Germany
Who will pay and how will the test take place at Origin?
How is not I feel a major problem as there are Private companies already in place linked to the major UK airports
Who will pay (Circa £150) is still an open question, the options are The traveller, The airport, The airline, The Canarian Government ....... or a mixture of them all?
Destination PCR test - It has been stated the Canarian Government will arrange and pick up the cost , the open question is.... will this reduce the current quarantine period to 7 days or Zero?
Watch out as Oct 22 is the next Travel advisory for the UK Government
