NEW coronavirus infections and fatalities in the Balearics continue to fall.
Thursday’s Health Ministry figures show that PCR tests have detected four more Covid-19 cases, compared with nine new contagions on the archipelago in the previous 24 hours and 11 the day before. This brings the official total to 1,883.
There have been three further coronavirus-related deaths on the islands. The number of fatal victims therefore rises to 188.
The number of people on the islands who have seen off the virus now stands at 1,219 following another 23 recoveries. This represents 64.7 per cent of the total cases.
Hospitalisations of the archipelago’s Covid-19 patients since the start of the pandemic are up by three from yesterday to 1,082, or 57.4 per cent of diagnosed cases. Of these 167 have required intensive care treatment, one more than Wednesday’s figure.
The Balearics accumulated incident rate for the last 14 days is 21.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, while the national average is 78.87.
