ens of thousands of tourists have remained on Spain’s Canary and Balearic islands amid COVID19 crisis


Around 100,000 tourists are still in hotels and private accommodations on both islands, despite a nationwide lockdown.

Angel Victor Torres, the President of the Canaries, revealed in a press conference that the number of guests still on the islands is between 80,000 and 90,000.

Remaining hotels are being urged by Torres to close and guests asked to leave.

This raises problems as all flights from mainland Spain to the two sets of islands were cancelled from yesterday.


The Federal Government of Spain has announced that it will give the autonomous regions €210 million in the fight against coronavirus.

More than 17,000 people in Spain are infected with the virus, up 25 per cent since Wednesday.
