Covid-19 Stats for Fuerteventura December 2021

There are two vastly different sets of covid-19 statistics released daily here in Fuerteventura. One released by the Cabildo de Fuerteventura and another released by the Gobierno de Canarias.

Why is that? There does not appear to be any official explanation, but there are a couple of different thoughts on why.

One is that the Cabildo figures only show those who are registered with a centro salud (on the local NHS), while the Gobierno figures include unregistered people. This to me made sense, as the Cabildo figures are always lower than the Gobierno. The other thought is simply that Fuerteventura have always been extremely slow in submitting the daily figures.

Me being me, I wanted to know more, so on 1st December I started keeping a record of the daily statistics.

If the first reason, that local figures only show registered people, was correct, you would see specific differences and pattern to back this up. Surely the number of those recovered and the number of new active cases would be at least the same, or more, from the Gobierno, and the same for the number in hospital, on the ward and in ICU. However, when you look at the table below, this is definitely not the case. Whilst the majority of the time new cases are indeed higher from Gobierno, there are some days that they are in fact lower. It is even more noticeable with the number of recoveries, with the majority of Gobierno being far lower, and often zero. The numbers of those in hospital are very close, but again are sometimes lower from the Gobierno.

So, that sort of points towards the latter reason being correct, merely a delay in Fuerteventura passing on updates. But then, if that were so, why are the Gobierno figures not static until updates are received, just where are their daily changes coming from?

Just how often does the Cabildo update the Gobierno, if not daily, and why does the gap between the two figures constantly grow bigger?

With statistics like these, how can you believe either are correct?

Grey rows are from the Cabildo de Fuerteventura. White rows are from the Gobierno de Canarias.
