The Balearic health ministry's Wednesday report indicates 442 new positive cases of coronavirus. This is the second highest daily figure since the start of the pandemic.

These 442 cases, it needs stressing, were from 5,940 tests, a much higher number of tests than is usually the case. The positive test rate is 7.44%, which is above the World Health Organization's five per cent target but is only slightly higher than the rate on Tuesday - 7.39% from 4,587 tests and 339 positives.

Mallorca accounts for 397 of the 442 cases, Ibiza 24, Minorca eight and Formentera thirteen.

In the hospitals, there are 242 patients on wards in Mallorca, sixteen in Ibiza and eight in Minorca. There are 47 ICU patients in Mallorca, three in Ibiza and three in Minorca. Twenty more patients have been discharged from hospital and a further 182 people have recovered. The ministry has confirmed three more fatalities. The total is now 435.

At municipality level, however, there are decreases in the number of active cases in 23 of the 53 municipalities (figures compared with Tuesday). Palma, Calvia and Sa Pobla are among the municipalities that have registered decreases.
