The students that went crazy in June have wrecked the season for all the hard working people and businesses, I can’t see anything other than restrictions coming, as it starts to get busy with British and German tourists it will be a cocktail of disaster, the students do this every year, and this year especially it’s caused the start of the end for 2021

Current Majorca Covid cases equate to 30,000 if you equate this to the UK population size. So stand by to return to the Amber or even Red list and tourist season finished before it’s even started.

The contagion rate is really soaring away here now, giving much concern for the "government", and being attracting negative comments about it in all the foreign press. Even keeping to the current restrictions, if we get mass tourism in a couple of weeks it's very hard to see anything other than the obvious repeat of last year's fiasco of a return to closing down again very soon.

This is not good at all, IF The numbers continue to rise it will be a disaster in Mallorca.
