Coronavirus in luxury resort traps thousands in Canary Islands hotel

Hundreds of people have been forced to stay in their rooms in a luxury resort in the Spanish Canary Islands, after an Italian doctor on holiday tested positive for coronavirus.

The H10 Costa Adeje Palace hotel in Tenerife was placed in lockdown after the doctor – from Italy’s northern region that has 283 cases – was taken to a local clinic and kept in isolation.

More than 1000 people saying there have been told they are not allowed to leave.

“Hundreds of hotel clients are being monitored for health reasons and the degree of supervision will be assessed during the day, but so far, we’re not talking about quarantine,” health authority spokeswoman Veronica Martin told AFP.
