Recent diagnosis include a Local Police officer from Alcudia who has been hospitalised at Inca Hospital.

Mayor, Barbara Rebassa, said the officer was among a group of colleagues who recently attended a security conference in Madrid.

Officers have since been patrolling alone rather than in pairs, and two colleagues are currently self-isolating.
