In Spain, the Ministry of Health and the communities will today analyse the state of the pandemic in Cordoba (December 2), now gripped by the appearance of the omicron variant at a time of increased transmission prior to Christmas.
This is the second face-to-face meeting held by Minister Carolina Darias and the 17 councillors so far this year, after the plenary session in June.
10,536 new Covid infections have been recorded in the last 24 hours and an increase in the incidence of 9 points, to 217 cases, which continues to push the pressure on intensive care units, whose national average is 8 per cent.
