The positive test rate for coronavirus has fallen to 3.39%. The health ministry's figures for Tuesday indicate that there are 66 new positive cases and that these are the result of 1,949 tests. The ministry has confirmed two more deaths, which take the total to 298. These deaths were of residents of care homes - one in Soller, the other in Capdepera.

There are 59 patients in intensive care units (56 in Majorca and three in Ibiza). This figure is down five from Monday. The number of patients on wards has gone down by three to 253 - 205 in Majorca, 46 in Ibiza and two in Minorca. A further 288 people have recovered, 32 of whom have left hospital.

what is the governments 'acceptable' level of infections and deaths for us to be able to return to normal. I assume they realize that, without a vaccine, having an acceptable target of zero is quite ludicrous.... but, we are dealing with Armengol so God knows what the answer is.

To Compo: Quarantine rules in the UK:

Compo - less than 20 cases cumulatively over 7 days per 100,000 of population is the trigger point for an airbridge to be reinstated. The daily figures reported here do not include that statistic but those published by the central ministry of health do. The figure published by them today is just under 65 but has been dropping quickly. Will be another month or two based on the current trend. The UK want to see two weeks of it being below the threshold before reinstating airbridges.

I thought the figure was less than 20 per 100,000. But could be wrong.

At what % do the Balearics have a genuine chance of an air corridor with the U.K. now that the uk gov has said they are willing to treat islands separately from the mainland?
