The Balearic health service has reported that 33 Spanish students currently on trips to Mallorca have tested positive for coronavirus.

The number of students isolating at a so-called Covid hotel has risen to 175. A total of 268 have been identified as close contacts of students who tested positive after returning to the mainland. The other 93 have for now been confined to their hotels.

Nine of the students have been admitted to Son Espases. The health ministry is studying whether it needs to isolate some 200 or so more students.
