Yes, I believe the situation in Mallorca is as bad as it is being related by the media and/or documentaries. The majority of people I personally know have been negatively affected by the pandemic, specifically in loss of jobs, loss of income, and consequently their emotional well-being has been affected. Some dear friends had to leave the island after losing everything and not being granted any support by the government as it took time to react to the sudden and destructive effect of the lockdown measures on self-employed, small business owners.
