According to the minister, the Council of Ministers will approve the elimination of the obligation, but will maintain it for the time being in health centres and pharmacies.
"We have a very stable epidemiological situation", Darias said outside an event with the Gasol Foundation.
But, the Balearic Minister for Health and Consumer Affairs, Patricia Gómez, today warned that in view of the possible withdrawal of masks on public transport there is “a considerable incidence of flu” and that, although the Covid situation is “stable”, “some outbreaks” have been seen again.
“We must be alert”, Gómez said while calling for “caution” while it continues to be extremely cold and “to continue taking hygiene and protection measures”, and get vaccinated against both diseases.
The minister said that emergency services are “stable” and that there are beds available.
“There are no excess admissions and the ICUs are also stable,” she said.
But she did stress that flu cases are on the rise and further spike is expected next week because of the cold snap in the Balearics.

Stan The ManOkay Stan, keep your mask on.
About time there pointless, still waiting on some evidence they actually worked.
As long as tin hats are still allowed some on here will be happy.
I still think that the masks have restricted a flu epedemic . Plus as Tourists arrive from Countries with flu and covid infections. The best method of spreading diseases is when the people are collected together on Buses Trains and Planes.
Better late than never.
Oh, what it is to have and wield power over the masses.
