Spanish Balearic Islands ban air, sea traffic to stem coronavirus

MADRID (Reuters) - The regional government of the Spanish Balearic Islands banned on Tuesday all flights and halted passenger sea traffic to stem the coronavirus epidemic, it tweeted.

It only maintained the transport of goods and limited traffic to allow locals to return from mainland Spain and from other countries.

On Monday, the Spanish government announced the closure of the mainland’s land border.
