The number of patients in intensive care is coming down.

The Thursday figures for coronavirus in the Balearics are two more fatalities, increasing the total to 306, and 107 more positive cases. These positives are based on 2,743 tests, giving a positive test rate of 3.9%. Ninety of the 107 are in Majorca, and the other seventeen are in Ibiza. There has been another death of a care home resident, but this has yet to be included in the daily number of fatalities owing to a processing delay by the epidemiological service; this delay is standard for verification purposes.

The number of people on hospital wards continues to fall. There are 186 in Majorca, five fewer than on Wednesday. The 41 in Ibiza and two in Minorca are the same as Wednesday. There are three fewer patients in intensive care units - 50 in Majorca (two fewer) and two in Ibiza, where there were three patients in ICU on Wednesday.
