The United Kingdom removes Balearic Islands from the list of safe destinations
The Balearic Islands have been removed from the United KIngdom’s list of safe travel destinations, after having been added just a few weeks ago. The main consequence of this decision is that British citizens that have not yet received their second vaccination will have to quarantine upon returning to their country from the archipelago. The islands were, until now, the only Spanish territory included in the green list of countries. As a consequence, there is an expected drop in reservations of young tourism, which would affect areas like Magaluf who have mainly these types of offers. It is likely that Germany will follow the same steps as the United Kingdom.

Massive arrival of vaccines in August to achieve 70% immunization
The positive cases detected in antigen tests – which will be available at pharmacies – should be sent for a PCR test at their own health centre in order to corroborate the result. The minister of Health has recognised that the epidemiological situation at this moment is worrying, and has insisted that the most effective solution to stop the exponential rise in cases is to continue vaccinating. Thanks to Moderna, the Ministry of Health has been able to confirm that, contrary to what was forecasted, four million doses will be delivered to Spain. This will allow the population to reach 70% immunity before the end of the month, with calculations that 90% of people in their 20’s will have received at least one dose of the vaccine by mid-August.
30,000 euros have been found in Orihuela, and they are searching for the owner
The Local Police of Orihuela has published this odd case on their social media profiles, in hopes of locating the owner. A neighbor of the municipality came across 30,000 euros in the city of Orihuela, and immediately notified the police who have activated a contact form through to Town Hall with the aim of finding the owner – who will have to prove that they have ownership. If nobody comes forward within the next two years, the person who discovered the money will become the new owner.
