Spain: Tenerife hotel guests seen peeking through window as quarantine continues

Spain, Adeje
February 27, 2020 at 13:29 GMT +00:00 · Published

A group of people were reportedly allowed to leave the H10 Costa Adeje Palace hotel in the south west of Tenerife in Spain's Canary Islands on Thursday, after being on lockdown following the confirmation that a number of guests had been infected with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Tenerife authorities issued an order to place the hotel guests under a 14-day quarantine. However, some people, who checked in the hotel after February 24, will reportedly be allowed to leave the hotel earlier.

Footage filmed on Wednesday and Thursday shows a group of people being escorted from the hotel premises, with several police and emergency vehicles parked outside the hotel.

Paragliders were flying near the Tenerife hotel, while the quarantined hotel guests, who remain confined to their rooms, could be seen looking out their windows.

The H10 Costa Adeje Palace hotel was placed on lockdown after it was confirmed that an Italian doctor tested positive for the virus. The doctor's wife and two others with whom the couple had travelled were also infected. The four people were transferred to the University Hospital of the Nuestra Senora de Candelaria on the island.

According to latest reports, the COVID-19 has claimed at least 2,800 lives and infected more than 82,000 worldwide so far.
