On Friday, Health Minister, Patricia Gómez issued a fresh appeal for people to get vaccinated when she reported on the evolution of the pandemic and the measures being taken to curb the 6th wave.
She stressed that the pressure on hospitals has not increased despite the huge increase in Covid cases.
"The pandemic is progressing," she said. “The number of active cases has increased by 44% in the last week and the number of patients hospitalised with coronavirus has increased by 19%.”
The general situation in Intensive Care Units in the Balearic Islands is low risk, except for Mateu Orfila Hospital in Minorca where Covid patients occupy 5 out of every 7 beds and scheduled surgeries have been suspended.
With infections soaring once again, an extra 30 Army personnel have been drafted in to help at the tracking centre.
