The Robert Koch Institute decided to remove the Canary Islands from the areas considered at risk due to their coronavirus incidence rates, in which the rest of Spain continues, with which Germany lifted its recommendation not to travel to the islands as of this past Saturday .
The news was advanced by the President of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, on his Twitter account and represents a ball of oxygen for the tourist sector of the archipelago when it is about to start its most important season of the year, that of winter, since Germany it is its second largest customer, after the UK.
The decision is based on “the low incidence of coronavirus infections”, according to a statement from the German Foreign Ministry that has spread, also on Twitter, the ambassador to Spain, Wolfgand Dold.
The measure has the endorsement of the Robert Koch Institut, which classifies areas as at risk when the incidence of the disease is above 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. “Good news”, Torres as well as the Foreign and Industry, Trade and Tourism ministers said on Twitter.
