"We live in a divided world, we all feel it…now’s the time for solidarity.” Idris Elba
These past few days and weeks, news about the coronavirus pandemic has come so thick and fast it’s almost impossible to keep up – and although it is certainly important to be informed about the situation and how to avoid being infected and passing on the infection, you might agree that it is not altogether healthy for our minds to be exposed to every worrying turn of events. Filtering the "information flood" is key to coping with the crisis.
We at Affordable Mallorca are not a news channel. And, day-by-day reporting is something we normally leave to the daily papers, whether in print or online. This said, we all find ourselves in a situation where everybody has a lot of practical questions of the how- and where-to kind – and to answer those is exactly what we’re here for and what you, our readers, have come to expect from us.
Our ULTIMATE GUIDE COVID-19 gives you all the information we find are relevant for you in this Global State-of-Emergency whether it’s about the virus itself, the economic consequences of the pandemic or how to keep you and your kids busy during this time. Remember things are moving fast.
We promise to do our very best to stay ahead of things and keep revising our articles at short intervals, but please understand that we are what we all are – humans. If you find any of our information should be updated, please get in touch. We’d appreciate your help. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for our daily posts about Mallorca.
