The Monday report from the Balearic health ministry indicates 240 new positive cases of coronavirus. These are 169 fewer than on Sunday. The number of new cases is always lower on a Monday because of the amount of testing, so the rather more pertinent figure is the test rate. This is 8.29% from 2,987 tests whereas Sunday's rate was 10.57% from 3,872 tests.

The number of new cases by island does point to the lack of testing on the other islands. Of the 240, 220 are in Mallorca. There are 19 in Ibiza, none in Minorca and one in Formentera. Of the 409 cases on Sunday, there were 286 in Mallorca, 95 in Ibiza, 23 in Minorca and five in Formentera.
