Beautiful sunny day in Palma

Beautiful sunny day in Palma.

24-04-2020Majorca Daily Bulletin reporter

Majorca was basking in temperatures of 23 degrees Centigrade this morning which will have given some cheer to the thousands of people who are in lockdown.

There was also some positive news today with the announcement that bars and restaurants are preparing to re-open after the lockdown.

The Spanish government has hinted that they will start easing restrictions by the middle of next month. Also children will be allowed to go out and play this Sunday.

Dano, I have a little daughter. I have not been able to see her for nearly 2 months. It’s breaking my heart. And yet, despite this and while you are complaining about your lack of scooter rides, I still support lockdown until more is known and the right decisions can be made. If the government is erring on the side of caution, good for them. And regarding the season, the sooner everyone realises that it’s totally gone for this year, the better.

Will you please make your minds up about the weather. First it’s lovely, then it’s prepare for storms, then it’s back to basking in sunshine again! And that was the 3 forecasts from you guys in the last two days about today! ( Saturday) Bunch of Michael Fishes! At least it is lovely though!

I quite like being at home all day in my large house in Santa Ponsa, I start off each day in the home gym, spend all day gardening then enjoy a glass of Rose and taking in the sea view. Hardest decision is which one of the six bedrooms to sleep in.

@Dano, you have posted the same comment three times complete with shouting (capital letters). This is not just about you, it’s about everybody. If you are allowed out then so has everyone else in your age group and area to be allowed out (and not everybody has a scooter). This has to be done in stages by age and by area in accordance with the developing situation. They have started with young children as they need the exercise most. So do the elderly but that is more of a risk as we are more likely to be more seriously ill if infected. Just think of all the disabled people who hardly ever or never go out and yet never complain, thank your lucky stars that you are not one of them and be patient, your turn will come.

NO!!!! Not allowing people out of their homes in the Balearic Islands (FAR different scenario than the rest of Spain) until the middle of May is ridiculous. In the Balearics the restriction of freedom of movement should be lifted NOW. For the past few weeks, we have averaged only 25-30 new cases per day across all of the Balearic Islands!! People need to be allowed to get out of their homes, go for walks, ride a bicycle, exercise, etc...but CONTINUE to maintain social distancing. Yes, businesses will remain closed for the time being. But, stress, frustration, and anger are building inside those who've been forced to remain in their homes for 6 weeks now. What harm can I possibly do if I go out for a drive on my scooter by myself? Loosen the ties that bind us, then monitor. If cases increase sharply, then you can always ratchet it back down.

Restaurant owners need to be careful of re-opening. I suggest it will be in the bedt interests of many if them to remain shut. Once Lockdown has stopped and employers cannot ERTE staff, then they need to decide whether to operate at a loss (no tourists and most people will have no interest in eating out under the restrictions that will be imposed) or lay staff off and wait until 2021. I know what I would do.
