The Coronavirus is still hitting headlines everywhere. From being an “unknown virus” that came from Wuhan, China, it suddenly had spread throughout the country and affected other places as well such as South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and even the United States. Quarantine and prevention is still encouraged, but it appears that in one place, an entire hotel was affected.

From a report, an Italian doctor went on vacation in Tenerife with his wife and after not feeling well, he voluntarily had himself tested, and was then found that he was positive of the Coronavirus. This case became the third occurrence in Spain, and the second one in the Canary Islands, with the first coming from a German citizen, who has long since been discharged.

The Italian doctor who was positive of the Coronavirus was staying at the Costa Adeje Palace Hotel, and in turn, the entire hotel complex, along with its 1,000 guests, are put under quarantine. Security forces of the state are now on guard, preventing anyone from entering and leaving the area.

The President of the Canary Islands, Angel Victor Torres, has responded to this via a Tweet, saying that “necessary protocol has been activated.”
