In the midst of the outbreak of the Covid pandemic in the Balearic Islands, with neighborhoods confined in Palma and Ibiza by the health authorities (with 11,558 cases, 173 more and 4 deaths in the last hours) the director of the Center for Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies,

Fernando Simón

, traveled to Mallorca last weekend to unleash his adventurous spirit.

Specifically, since last Thursday the epidemiological spokesperson for the Government of Sánchez has been on the island with the television adventurer

Jesús Calleja

with whom he records a program of 'Planeta Calleja' for Cuatro.

Well accompanied, among others by

María March

, daughter of financier Juan March and personal friend of Calleja, Simón has enjoyed balloon trips through the coves of the east of Mallorca, has been able to start diving in the waters off the coast of Andratx in the privileged marine reserve of El Toro and practiced caving.

A non-stop in the middle of the Covid-19 regrowth.

The exclusive marina of

Port Adriano

was chosen today by Calleja for the baptism of Simón in diving.

There they could be seen dressed in an oxygen bottle, a mid-waist neoprene suit, a mask at the ready and other items necessary for the dive.

Throughout the morning, a team of half a dozen technicians recorded Calleja, March and Simón's journey through the privileged seabed of the north coast of Mallorca aboard the

Mar Balear Dive

dive boat


At the same time that the Balearic Government of President Francina Armengol announced the tightening of the confinement measures in different parts of the Islands, Simón made his underwater first steps in the maritime environment of the Serra de Tramontana.

Simón, as announced at a press conference last Monday by the Secretary of State for Health, Silvia Calzón, is spending her second vacation period these days, this time in Mallorca.

The first was in mid-July on the Portuguese coast (


) on that occasion to indulge another of his sports passions, surfing.
