    The case of coronavirus in Germany, which is at the origin of the contagion of La Gomera, surprises experts

    The number of affected people it has generated is higher than it has been normal so far.

    The case is being followed "with great interest" by experts, due to the large number of new infections it has generated, above average.

    Faced with a contagion rate of 2 people for each infected, the Chinese woman who was in Germany has already caused at least 7-8 cases, although there are 5 that have occurred directly. In addition, it occurred when the Chinese patient showed still very mild symptoms of the disease.

Although after doing the interview, it was initially understood that it could be a negative case, the tests were conducted on the afternoon of this Monday at the University Hospital Nuestra Señora de Candelaria that confirmed the case. The Italian doctor was already isolated in recent days by not ruling out contagion.

          The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, through the General Directorate of Public Health, reports that the protocol established by coronavirus has been activated. The protocol establishes the obligation to perform second tests at the National Center for Microbiology of the Carlos III Health Institute. The citizen is isolated and under sanitary control.

            Coronavirus in Spain: an Italian doctor tests positive in the Canary Islands and there are four cases under study

            LAURA TARDÓN
            Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - 00:14

            An Italian doctor from the region of Lombardy who was on vacation in Tenerife has tested positive for coronavirus in the south of the island. The Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands Government has activated the protocol after learning that the tests performed on this tourist confirmed the first positive. The analyzes have been carried out at the Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria University Hospital with kits supplied by the Ministry of Health. It is expected that throughout this Tuesday, a second test will be carried out at the National Center for Microbiology of the Carlos III Health Institute.

            At the moment, following the protocol, the Italian tourist is isolated in a health center in the south of Tenerife, specifically in the Quirón Sur de Adeje Clinic. The patient is under sanitary control and has good health.

            According to sources of the counseling, the tourist voluntarily showed up at a health center on the Island and asked to have the tests done because he was suspected of being affected. As he indicated to the health personnel in the questionnaire that was made, he did not believe he had been infected by having been in direct contact with a coronavirus patient.

            This is the second case of coronavirus recorded in the Canary Islands, after the positive of a German tourist who traveled to La Gomera and was infected in his country. That patient has already been discharged.

            In coordination with the Ministry of Health, the same protocol has been activated in the Canary Islands that has been put in place before other suspicious cases in other parts of Spain. The Ministry of Health has activated a toll-free telephone line 900 112 061 from which a Nursing team, under the coordination of the Canary Islands Emergency Service (SUC), will respond to requests from citizens for information on prevention measures, possibilities of contagion and false concepts related to the virus.

            This infected is the third case that is registered in Spain, although to date on all occasions the patients have turned out to be foreigners. The second case was a Briton who was in the Balearic Islands. Now the health authorities will have to trace the steps of this Italian citizen to know if there could have been more infections.

                              Spain reports first locally transmitted coronavirus case

                              A man in the Madrid region is in serious condition as the national tally rises to 17, confirming suspicions that the virus had been circulating for days without being detected

                              A 62-year-old man who has been in a Seville hospital for pneumonia since February 20 has been confirmed as the first case of local Covid-19 contagion registered in Spain. The diagnosis is highly significant as it confirms the suspicions of many specialists after the spike in coronavirus cases in Italy: “The virus has been circulating for several days in Spain and we hadn’t detected it,” said the head of infectious diseases at a major Spanish hospital earlier this week.

                              The patient, who is being treated at the Virgen del Rocío hospital in Seville, is from nearby Huelva and has not left Spain in recent weeks, according to the regional government, who suggested that a “meeting held in Málaga” could have been the origin of his infection.

                              By Thursday afternoon a total of 17 cases had been reported in Spain. Of these, 15 were detected this week after hospitals adopted new criteria and began testing pneumonia patients for Covid-19.

                              One patient in the Madrid region is reported to be in serious condition, with the other cases described as mild. The most severe case is a 77-year-old with pre-existing medical conditions who is being treated in a hospital in Torrejón de Ardoz, in the east of Madrid.
