Mallorca is the only Balearic island that is currently at medium risk of infections. The rest of the islands are already in the so-called ‘new normal’ of infections, since their accumulated incidences at 14 days are below 25. However, infections are increasing in Minorca and Formentera; They are only going down in Ibiza. The accumulated incidence at 14 days of the Balearic Islands is 48.46; it is close to passing medium.

The Ib-Salut health service is particularly concerned about the epidemiological situation in Mallorca, as there has been a change in trend. The British variant, which is much more contagious, already represents 84.5% of positive COVID-19 cases in Mallorca, according to the latest study by the Son Espases Hospital Microbiology Service.
