The government wants gatherings to be as small as possible.


The Balearic government spokesperson, Pilar Costa, has asked the public to avoid making unnecessary journeys and to stay at home as much as possible.

Although social gatherings of more than ten people are now prohibited, Costa also asked for these gatherings to be as small as possible. It is all about taking "extreme precautions".

She explained at the Friday press briefing that measures now adopted by the government are "out of necessity and not to disrupt any economic activity". They have been taken "in order to strike a balance between economic and social activities".

There are difficult months ahead, she warned, and so it is essential that the public take all possible precautions. The government's measures are being evaluated regularly, and she did not rule out there being more restrictions if necessary.

I don’t understand why schools are opening if this is the case...

So to not disrupt economic activity, people need to go out and spend money in café's, restaurants and shops. Yet we are asked to stay home??? Anyway, at least the focus is on economic activities, which is in the end the only thing that keeps us alive.

I have self isolated in my apartment for 124 days so far. I am very depressed and bored. When I go for food, people are not wearing masks. Congregating in large groups. Drinking beer etc. in bars restaurants all day long. I am trying to avoid getting the virus. But many are not.
