The Monday report from the health ministry indicates 32 new positive cases of coronavirus, 31 of them in Mallorca, with one in Ibiza. There is no comparison with Sunday, as the ministry doesn't issue reports over the weekend. The 32 cases will probably reflect a lower amount of testing. On Friday, there were 56 cases - Mallorca 50, Ibiza four, Minorca two. The test rate for the 32 cases is 1.98% compared with 2.40% on Friday.

The 14-day cumulative incidence in the Balearics has risen from 62.1 on Friday to 66.0. The Mallorca incidence is 61.8, up from 57.1; Ibiza 106.0, down from 113.9; Minorca 45.0, up from 28.2; Formentera 42.0, down from 50.4. Seven-day incidence in the Balearics is 37.05, up from 34.14.

Twenty-eight of the 67 municipalities in the Balearics are defined as "new normality" - zero incidence or below 25.
