The slow motion disaster for Mallorca is the continued lack of control on internal arrivals. What a waste of time the lockdown was. All that loss of freedom and income, for what? It feels a lot like they’ve given up here and have gone on their hols. Police included. I’ve not seen them around for weeks. We could do with some of what Castilla y León are doing.

I am on mainland Spain now and the mask wearing is 99% here. But.......people are way too close, hugging, kissing, tapping om shoulders. Restaurants do very little about sanitizing chairs and tabled. People go, next lot sits down, etc etc. But, this virus cannot be stopped, whatever we try. As even if there is another lock down, people will go to work, shop, walk dogs etc. Until there is a vaccin, let's just live our lives. And if you don't want to get corona, stay at home.
