Monitoring: Delta prevalent, more vaccines and complete cycle
“The circulation of the delta variant is prevalent in Italy. This variant is dominant in the European Union and is associated with an increase in the number of new cases of infection also in other countries with high vaccination coverage ”. This is what emerges from the draft of the weekly monitoring on coronavirus, specifying that “higher vaccination coverage and the completion of vaccination cycles are the main tools to prevent further recurrences of episodes of increased circulation of the virus supported by emerging variants with greater transmissibility”.
The Rt is still down to 0.85 and the incidence is from 64 to 54
In the period 25 August – 7 September 2021, the average Rt calculated on symptomatic cases continues to fall, which was equal to 0.85 (range 0.83 – 0.95), below the epidemic threshold and decreasing compared to to the previous week when the value was 0.92. The incidence of cases per 100 thousand inhabitants also decreases (and this is one of the key decision-making indicators) which passes, in the national value, from 64 last week to 54 in the latter (period 10-16 September). It emerges from the draft of the weekly monitoring on the Covid-19 epidemic at the examination of the control room that will be illustrated today.

The same value in the data sheet on decision-making indicators that accompanies the weekly monitoring, now being examined by the control room, updated to 14 September, sees an even lower value: 5.8. The employment rate in medical areas nationwide drops slightly to 7.2%. The number of people hospitalized in these areas is decreasing from 4,307 (7/09/2021) to 4,165 (14/09/2021)
