The Monday report from the health ministry indicates 223 new positive cases of coronavirus, eight fewer than on Sunday. By island, the cases are Mallorca 204, Ibiza 19, Minorca zero, Formentera zero. These contrast with Sunday's - Mallorca 155, Ibiza 55, Minorca 18, Formentera three. As ever on a Monday, the figures are influenced by a lack of testing - not in Mallorca but on the other islands.
