Ironically, in the high season, the corona numbers skyrocket on Mallorca. Yesterday, the health authorities in the Balearic Islands recorded more new corona infections than ever before. Almost 800 tests were positive on the holiday island. So far, one day in January held the sad record with 780 cases, as the ARD writes. The seven-day incidence in Mallorca and the other Balearic Islands has risen to 265, according to local authorities.

Andrés Mitter is the owner of a sporting goods shop in Port de Sóller. He lives from the tourists. And yet he says: “I think that restrictions are necessary today.” Because: “The people have become more carefree,” he tells the ARD. No wonder: “There are hardly any restrictions: you can now walk across the street without a mask.”
