Spain's Gran Canaria and capital Madrid go into another lockdown - average age of infection 20-45s

Tielmes in Madrid, La Barquilla in Cáceres and Valleseco in Las Palmas on Gran Canaria have asked residents not to leave their homes.

It comes after 39 people have tested positive in Tielmes with one resident, aged 77, dying and Gran Canaria has tripled its positive results in 23 days, with 2,043 cases as at Saturday.

La Barquilla in Cáceres and Valleseco in Las Palmas on Gran Canaria were all contained.

Valleseco mayor, Dámaso Arencibia Lantigua said: “I call for more effort to contain the disease.”

The mayor has also suspended all events until further notice in order to avoid the mass concentration of people.

He says all travel outside the town should be avoided unless absolutely essential.

Gran Canaria has registered the most coronavirus outbreaks of all the Canary Islands, mainly connected to nightlife, and tripled cases in 23 days – taking total cases to 2,043.

The average age range of most of the cases is also between 20 and 45 Eurostat confirmed.

The mayor of Tielmes, Miguel Ángel Barbero said: “This is not confinement as such but a series of recommendations. This will not be exclusive to this municipality. There are several sources and there is no relationship between them.”

The measures will last for 14 days but could be renewed.
