Let’s just hypothesise for a moment. Prior to Covid, the Balearic Islands were attracting slightly under 14 million foreign tourists per annum. With Covid, what if all these 14 million were to be given free PCR tests for their return journeys? A fraction of the number, aged under six, would be excluded, so let’s - very liberally - call it 13 million. How much would it cost an administration of some sort to provide these free tests?
