Fears are mounting that Spain's Balearic Islands are destined for the red list on Thursday, as Covid cases sky-rocket.

Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca, all of which have been on the green 'watchlist' for two weeks, are recording a case rate that has tripled in just two weeks to 402 per 100,000 citizens.

"Balearics will go amber in Thursday’s traffic light review, but could go straight from green watchlist to red. Ministers concerned by high test positivity at 9% and daily infections reaching second-highest ever level," warned travel expert Paul Charles this morning.

Coronavirus rates are roaring across Europe, with three of Britain's favourite holiday destinations topping the charts.

Along with mainland Spain, Cyprus and Portugal are seeing the highest infection rates, according to the ratings used by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

I Call Bull: No way they will bounce from green straight to red BUT I can see them going to Amber for sure

Thank God I've chosen not to book a break overseas this year. It's going to be chaotic for some time to come yet.

And that highlights perfectly the problem with going on holiday this summer. Any popular location could go on the red list at any time meaning you're going to have to hotel quarantine when you return no matter if you are jabbed or not
