The President of the Government, Francina Armengol, has asked the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, to defer mortgage payments as people deal with the problems caused by coronavirus and the State of Emergency. She also Prime Minister Sanchez for direct help for residents, companies and the public administration.

Francina Armengol wants the Ministry of Development to tighten air and sea restrictions even more and her plan is send all Spanish tourists back to their autonomous communities and send all foreign tourists home to their own countries.

"The necessary flights are guaranteed for the return of Balearic residents to the Islands and the rest will be restricted as much as possible by air and sea,” but freight traffic will be guaranteed.

She also said that it was pointless carrying out health checks at airports because of the incubation period and made it clear that the State of Emergency affects everyone, including tourists saying no-one is allowed to walk around the streets.

President Armengol advised anyone who is able to work from home to do so and insisted that there is no shortage of any products and that there is no need to stockpile.

55 people in the Balearic Islands have been diagnosed with coronavirus, 50 in Majorca, 3 in Minorca and 2 in Ibiza.
