The Friday report from the regional health ministry shows 223 new positive cases (forty more than Thursday) and a positive test rate of 6.35% from 3,511 tests. The test rate is almost two percentage points higher than on Thursday (4.59%). Of the 223 cases, 195 are in Mallorca, 15 in Ibiza and 13 in Minorca.

The better news comes from the hospitals. While the number of patients in intensive care units in the Balearics remains 42, the number on wards continues to fall. On Monday the total for the Balearics was 211. It is now 167, with 142 patients in Mallorca, 18 in Ibiza and seven in Minorca.
