Health has reported 13,738 cases and 37 deaths with COVID-19. The official count in Spain reaches 88,122 deceased and the cases registered since the beginning of the pandemic amount to 5.189.220.

The cumulative incidence continues to rise. Since the last report, it grows 14 points, to 248.18 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The incidence increases in all territories, without exception. The highest rise was registered in the Basque Country, with 45 points more, although Navarra continues to be the region with the highest incidence, already over 700 cases per 100,000 inhabitants; both communities are at very high risk. Aragon and Catalonia are at high risk and the rest are at medium risk.

Meanwhile, the world watches the evolution of the omicron variant, detected in South Africa and travel restrictions are extended. Spain has already detected seven cases of the variant and there is already community transmission in Madrid.

The European Commission considers that the time has come to discuss the advisability of making vaccination against COVID-19 mandatory given that only 70% of the total European population is fully immunized.
