Antonio Oliver, head of the Son Espases Hospital microbiology service, says that Omicron will soon become the dominant variant in the Balearics. It currently represents 25% of daily positive cases, whereas this was eight per cent last week. Transmissibility is such that Dr. Oliver forecasts that more than half of cases will be Omicron within a few days.
