Leo I think the domino effect of the students partying is what is being shown in the infection rates at present, it’s not the tourists that have been the cause of this spike, that said, thousands of tourists arriving now and being careless could be absolutely devastating

They have already a plan, furst get in so much money as possible and when the season is over they will Close down Mallorca with curfews and restrictions, Its al about the money and not about the Corona, Its just an excuse.

Why are the infection rates suddenly increasing? Has the Indian Delta Variant come on to the Island. If so HOW?


Robert / Hace 7 months

Few month ago with numbers around 50.. Restaurant could not open. Now its more than 500 every day and life is seems normal, even no masks needed outside. Its not about saving lifes ist not about pressure on hospital. Its a fake virus. Since this pandemic.

They stolen money and time from us. Its a shame that they could do this with people.

The Government were highly pressurised by all the Tourist Industry, and because they listened every resident will suffer. They should start thinking more of saving jobs and next years season now, with far stricter ,enforceable regulations and penalties ,than trying to rush . It's like kicking patients out when not cured.
