The Monday report from the Balearic health ministry indicates just 53 new positive cases. There is less testing on Sundays, which partially explains the low number of new cases. Even so, the 2,960 tests for the Monday report are only 414 fewer than those for the Sunday report and give a positive test rate that is way down - 1.79%. Of the 53 cases, 43 are in Mallorca, nine are in Ibiza and there is one in Minorca.
