THE Balearic Islands have one of the lowest rates for people who have developed antibodies to Covid-19 of any region in Spain.
Just 2.4 per cent of the province’s population have had coronavirus and then made a recovery, according to the results of a nationwide Health Ministry study on the scale of immunity to the virus.
A total of 3,064 adults and children in the archipelago were tested for the presence of antibodies generated to fight off Covid-19 for the study, which was carried out by the Carlos III Health Institute and the National Statistics Institute in collaboration with the different regions of the country.
