The Tuesday report from the Balearic health ministry indicates 1,794 new positive cases of coronavirus, 575 more than on Monday, but an increase that could have been anticipated because of a lack of testing on Sunday that was behind the Monday figure. On Monday, there were 1,012 new cases in Mallorca, 146 in Ibiza, 17 in Minorca and two in Formentera. The Tuesday cases are more representative - Mallorca 1,224; Minorca 284; Ibiza 232; Formentera ten. Even so, the Tuesday number is down on what it was at the end of last week - 2,190 reported on Saturday.
