The Balearics is one of the regions of Spain with a seven-day cumulative incidence of new cases of coronavirus that is below the national average. On Wednesday, the rate - according to figures from the national ministry of health - was 1,337.3. The national figure was 1,359.70.

The lowest rate is Andalusia - 444.47 cases - followed by the Canaries with 683.82 and Madrid with 797.07. Different regulations apply in these regions.
