The official data approximates to 1 death for every 5,500 persons. Extremely low by anyone’s standards. I know it’s far worse in Madrid and Cataluña but there seems to be no logic anymore to maintaining a blanket lockdown. Some regions can clearly loosen up and perhaps bring their economies back from the brink, as well as our sanity and health by getting out and about. Having followed events this week both nationally (Sanchez being wrong footed again) and locally ( Sñr Negueruela saying that the tourist tax doesn’t affect competitiveness and so it will remain) it is clear that they haven’t a clue what they are doing!

According to Eurostat, there are 923.000 people living on Mallorca. This means the 164 people that fell victim to Covid-19, representing 0.000177% of the population. Yet half the economy is in ruins or partly in ruins and tens of thousands lost their jobs and the aftermath has not even panned out properly yet. Something does not add up here.
