COVID-19 is a notifiable disease and, as such, the responsibility for notification in accordance with the criteria established at any given time corresponds to the physicians and Public Health Services of the autonomous communities that carry out this notification.
The information obtained by epidemiological surveillance is different from any information obtained for statistical purposes. It is collected and used, in real-time, for public health decision-making. For this reason, it may be incomplete, contain errors and suffers from delays to varying degrees. In short, it takes time to clean up and consolidate.
It is important to emphasise that all results are provisional and should be interpreted with caution because they provide the information available at the time of data extraction.
The Regional Ministry of Health provides us with very extensive and detailed information on the COVID situation in our islands through this page.
