Newsbrief: First coronavirus case on El Hierro
The man has become the first infected with corona virus on the island having travelled several days earlier to Tenerife, where he had had contact with people at risk. He was in isolation at his home until last Tuesday when he realised he needed to go to the ER having recognised the combined symptoms of fever, cough and difficulty breathing. In addition, the man presented a series of previous underlying conditions. El Hierro was until this Friday, along with our tiniest island La Graciosa, one of the only places in the archipelago on which no confirmations of the virus yet been reported.
