Martinique is home to Subtype B A5. Omicron is the current version and scientists believe it is less deadly and virulent than the Delta form that caused such a stir in Martinique in 2021. On the other side, it is far more readily transferred.
In Martinique, the disease is still spreading, but citizens in Guadeloupe and Guyana, for example, are experiencing the reverse.
