Can they not do basic maths in this Govt? Vaccinations have been happening for nearly 3 weeks. That works out at ( let’s be generous) 5 thousand a week. Population of Mallorca? 922,000. The projection is alarming. At this rate it will take 184 weeks to vaccinate everyone. Even 70% is 129 weeks. That’s well over two years! Hopelessly pathetic!

Really that is a pathetic number of vaccine doses. And then they’ve only administered three quarters.

Maybe they should take a bite out of Oliver’s book and go with their begging bowl to Madrid ... ‘more please?’.

Either that or let tourism go down the pan for a second summer.
