There are three fewer patients in intensive care in Mallorca (34), while in Ibiza there is one more (13). There is no change in Minorca, where there are two patients.

One hundred and eight more people have recovered, four of whom were in hospital. The health service is attending to a total of 1,640 people, 38 fewer than Monday, and primary care in Mallorca to 1,099, a decrease of ten.
