In view of falling coronavirus infection numbers, the restrictions on the Spanish island of Mallorca are to be further relaxed.

As of Tuesday, people from different households are allowed to get together again for all-night parties, the regional government of the Mediterranean island said on Monday.

Since the end of July, such gatherings were initially prohibited between 1 am and 6 am, and then from 2 am.

From now on, up to eight people can be served at the same table indoors in restaurants, and up to 12 outdoors, according to the island's official journal.

On nearby Ibiza, another of the Balearic Islands, the party ban remains in force for the time being due to the higher infection rate.

Incidence decreasing

According to new figures released by the Spanish Ministry of Health on Friday evening, the seven-day incidence on the Balearic Islands currently stands at 88 with a downward trend.

Around 17 per cent of the beds in intensive care units on the islands are occupied by patients with Covid-19.

Spain has fully vaccinated 71.5 per cent of its population to date, while 77 per cent have received at least one jab. For the Balearic Islands, these figures are 67 per cent and 70 per cent, respectively.
