In the whole of the Islands, health has notified yesterday about 600 new infections, in addition to detecting a new positive in the Residence of Santa Rita in Menorca, declaring another outbreak in a residence of Arta that would affect two users and a worker. We are facing a rate of contagions that has not been seen since the end of January. 275 people have been discharged. The number of active cases is rising and there are now more than 4,500 people with the active disease. The positivity rate also continues to soar. 11% of the tests carried out in our community are positive. The age brackets are led by young people between 16 and 30 years of age.

A total of 112 Covid patients are being treated in hospitals, 86 are in silver and 26 in the ICUs.

They are :

  • Majorca: 61 patients on the ward; 20 in the ICU.
  • Menorca: 14 patients on the ward; 3 in the ICU.
  • Ibiza and Formentera: 11 patients on the ward; 3 in the ICU.

Health organisations remind us of the importance of vaccination to stop the pandemic and that variants such as the Delta multiply the number of people infected by 80.

The Official College of Doctors of the Balearic Islands appeals to the responsibility of citizens.

The government will approve next Tuesday that pharmacies can sell antigen tests without prescription. So any citizen will be able to buy the rapid test in a pharmacy and find out if they have Covid 19.
