The Ministry of Health confirmed 5 more coronavirus deaths in the Balearic Islands on Wednesday and 43 new infections.

There are now a total of 1,412 people infected and 89 fatalities.

129 patients have been admitted to the ICU since the pandemic began and 616 have fully recovered from Covid-19, including 79 who were allowed to leave hospital on Monday.

Dr Javier Arranz, the Spokesperson of the Coronavirus Autonomous Committee, has explained several times that the numbers will go up and down whilst the downward trend continues as the pandemic dissipates.

On Wednesday, the number of new cases fell by 6 but on Tuesday, there were 49 new cases, a substantial increase compared to previous days.

The figures were especially good over last weekend, with 14 new infections on Saturday, 22 on Sunday and 27 on Monday.

This is not true! This is fake news to try and get tourism back but the Covid-19 situation in Spain its out of control. For too long now Spain has been living it up off the richer EU countries and over spending without a care in the world. It's time to kick Spain out of the EU so they will appreciate other people's money and rely on their own money more.

From the way Spain is handling this pandemic it is clear to see that healthcare professionals are lacking equipment and the Spanish Gov. and Spanish Businesses just sit back and want to rely on the EU for hand outs, instead of opening up their bank accounts and start spending their own money on their own people to fight this pandemic.

Spain is behaving in an ungrateful manner by having left their hotels and tourist centers open for too long, knowing that a pandemic was underway. It is not fair for Spain to now stick their hands out to try and get free money from the EU after they behaved in an irresponsible manner. The King of Spain as well should start giving his Billions of Euros to the Spanish people, instead of hoarding all their wealth, while Spaniards are needing medical care, food and money for housing and other bills.
