A resort on the Spanish island of Tenerife is under lockdown
because an Italian couple has tested positive for the Covid-19
The Tourist Offices of Spain confirmed that two H10 Costa
Adeje Palace guests -- an Italian man and his wife -- have tested positive for
the virus. The spokesperson with the organization said that while the property
is “not officially under quarantine,” the Canary Islands Health Service has
mandated that “accesses in and out of the hotel are controlled.”
Additionally, “a system of sanitary facilities has been
activated in the establishment,” which the tourist office said includes
medical, nursing and psychology staff.
A press conference addressing the situation will be held in
Santa Cruz de Tenerife on Tuesday.
Barcelona-based H10 Hotels confirmed that
“health and operational recommendations from the health authorities” have been
implemented at the 467-room H10 Costa Adeje Palace.
“We are providing customers and hotel staff all the
necessary care and attention so that, despite the inconveniences this situation
may cause, they are taken care of in the best way possible,” added the company.
The situation in Tenerife comes as confirmed Covid-19
coronavirus cases in Italy hit more than 280.
