Although there is no specific data on sales in pharmacies, the Balearic Pharmaceutical Cooperative has specified that in January the number of FFP2 masks supplied to pharmacies in Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera doubled compared to the previous month. In December, they supplied 192 units, compared to 500 in January.

It should be noted that there are even pharmacies that sell FFP2 masks, because the fear of contagion, especially due to new strains, has forced some people to source the maximum possible protection.
