The Wednesday report from the health ministry provides a rather more positive picture than in recent days. The number of new positive cases is 41, fourteen fewer than reported on Tuesday, while no new deaths have been reported for the sixth consecutive day; the total remains 779.

Of the 41 cases, 33 are in Mallorca, five are in Ibiza, two are in Minorca, and there is one in Formentera. The test rate is 1.31% from 3,129 tests, 472 more than Tuesday, when the test rate was 2.07%.

On the wards, there are 31 Covid patients in Mallorca and 20 in Ibiza; both these figures are down one from Tuesday. There is still a total of thirteen patients in intensive care, albeit there is one more patient in Ibiza (seven) and one fewer in Mallorca (twelve). Sixty-six more people have recovered, eight of whom were in hospital.

On vaccination, 161,153 doses have been administered in the Balearics; 45,605 people have received two doses. For Mallorca, these figures are 128,037 and 37,075.

The 14-day cumulative incidence of new cases per 100,000 in the Balearics is up from 58.98 to 60.90. In Mallorca it is up from 62.16 to 63.17. On the other islands the incidence is down to 33.19 from 36.40 in Minorca, while it has risen from 22.31 to 25.01 in Ibiza; it remains 33.03 in Formentera.

The seven-day incidence has risen from 30.80 to 31.58 (Balearics) but is down from 32.36 to 31.58 in Mallorca. Minorca remains 19.27; Ibiza is up from 14.20 to 14.87; and Formentera from 16.51 to 24.77.

Hospital occupancy and ICU occupancy are the figures we should gauge things by. I've no doubt that many of us are infected with other potentially lethal diseases but mostly asymptomatic. Covid infections are high because we go looking for it. It's common sense.
