On Friday, the regional health ministry reported 258 new positive cases of coronavirus. This was the highest daily figure since September 12. Twenty-two more than on Thursday, the 258 cases produced a test rate of 7.01% from 3,680 tests.

While these cases refer to all the islands, it is Mallorca which has produced most of them - 236. In Ibiza there were eleven, in Minorca ten and in Formentera one. The situation in Ibiza is much better than it was. There are at present 23 people in hospital, five of them in intensive case. Minorca has thirteen patients in hospital; three in ICU. In Mallorca there are 164 patients on wards and 45 in intensive care.
