Why are we surprised, constantly in Calvia, despite the streets being quiet people especially children with parents, so called speed walkers all with no masks. The latest closures of bars, restaurants etc, has created a situation where queues from outside establishments, people smoke, talk with masks below the chin and in many cases hug and kiss people whom they know. Very sad situation when you consider Calvia was lowering it's figures before all the latest measures.
