Spain yesterday recorded a new daily high in coronavirus infections. According to the Ministry of Health, 49,823 new cases were reported within 24 hours. The much more contagious Omicron variant already accounted for almost half of all new cases.

It accounted for 47.2 percent of cases detected between Dec. 6 and Dec. 12, according to the ministry. The previous daily record was 39,000 cases within 24 hours in January. Spain is among the countries with the highest vaccination rate, with 89.7 percent of those over 12 fully vaccinated.

In light of the spread of the Omicron variant, the government is holding an extraordinary meeting with the presidents of the regions to debate additional measures to contain the virus. Some regions are already planning to introduce nighttime curfew restrictions, among other measures, this week, including populous Catalonia.
