The coronavirus level on the island has more than tripled since the beginning of January, particularly in people over the age of 65.

Formentera’s president, Alejandra Ferrer called for the “responsibility” of citizens to minimise contacts and has called for vaccinations to be speeded up in a bid to kickstart tourism when possible.

Today’s figures show Ibiza and Formentera have registered a total of 381 positives, of which 366 have been in Ibiza and 15 in Formentera.

Yesterday, Canaries hotspot Lanzarote announced it was closing its borders over rising cases of Covid.

The Canary government says the island, including neighbouring islet La Graciosa, will rise to alert level four starting at midnight on Saturday due to the “seriousness” of coronavirus cases on the island and especially the “speed” in the transmission of infections.
