The corona incidence in Mallorca is increasing again significantly. Many Brits want to party on the island – are they spreading the Delta variant?
Palma de Mallorca – The popular German travel destination Mallorca is struggling with rising corona incidences. From Saturday to Sunday of the previous weekend (3rd to 4th July) 178 new infections were recorded on the island. That boils down to a 7-day incidence in excess of 80. A new high since February 2021. Does this mean that the summer vacation of many German * Mallorca lovers is about to burst?
One factor in this equation is the entry of many British people: Last weekend, around 270 aircraft from the virus variant area Great Britain landed on the Balearic island of Mallorca. And the British are not necessarily holding back – according to a short report by RTL, partying and drinking are on the daily agenda for many British people. This of course significantly increases the risk of infection.
In Great Britain the Delta variant * is currently rampant in a dangerous way. The British incidence has already passed the 200 mark, which is why the Kingdom of Germany has been classified as a virus variant area with a high risk of infection. The Delta variant now accounts for almost ninety percent of all new infections in the UK. As a result, there is an increased risk that the highly contagious Corona variant will also be introduced to Mallorca.
This is already becoming apparent: After months of stable corona on the island, the 7-day incidence is currently skyrocketing. Almost thirty percent of the infections can be traced back to the delta variant – and the trend is rising. Here you can find out what the new incidence values mean for German holidaymakers on Mallorca, which new regulations are to apply on the island and to what extent the British are introducing the Delta variant *. * 24hamburg.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
