Covid, Gimbe: the weekly monitoring data

The contagion curve is inverted (+ 43% new cases) and hospitalizations increase (+ 7.5%). The monitoring of the Gimbe Foundation, in the week 20-26 October, detects a net increase in new weekly cases: from 17,870 to 25,585.

Although the growth could in part be linked to the increase in total swabs, the increase in the positive rate of molecular swabs and hospitalizations (+181) indicate greater circulation of the virus. As for the vaccination campaign: the administration drops (152,000 per day) and 11 million doses remain “in the fridge”. For third doses, Gimbe detects national coverage for booster dose at 32.3% and for additional doses at 25.5% but with notable regional differences. The Green Pass effect is felt: with almost 7.5 million people without even a dose of vaccine and just over 193,000 new vaccinated people in a week, the 90% vaccination coverage target for over 12s is gone.

In detail, compared to the previous week, Gimbe notes a 43.2% increase in new cases (25,585 vs 17,870) and a decrease in deaths (249 vs 271). Currently positive cases (75,046 vs 74,546), people in home isolation (72,101 vs 71,768) and hospitalizations with symptoms (2,604 vs 2,423), while intensive care decreases (341 vs 355). Here are the variations: Deaths: 249 (-8.1%) Intensive care: -14 (-3.9%) Hospitalized with symptoms: +181 (+ 7.5%) Home isolation: +333 (+ 0.5%) ) New cases: 25,585 (+ 43.2%) Currently positive cases: +500 (+ 0.7%).

“The sudden increase in new cases – which certifies an inversion of the contagion curve after seven weeks – and in hospitalizations and the progressive decline in the effectiveness of vaccines on infection require both to accelerate the administration of the third dose to all identified categories by the ministry is to convince over 2.7 million over 50s not yet vaccinated, at high risk of hospitalization and death », says Nino Cartabellotta, president of the Gimbe Foundation. Although the growth could in part be linked to the increase in total swabs to access the “green certificate” – explain from Gimbe – the increase in the positive rate of molecular ones and hospitalizations (+181) indicates a greater circulation of the virus . In addition, “currently positive” (75,046 vs 74,546), people in home isolation (72,101 vs 71,768) and hospitalizations with symptoms (2,604 vs 2,423) are slightly increasing, while intensive care is decreasing (341 vs 355).

In the last week, vaccine administrations have dropped, which from 20 to 26 October averaged just over 152,000 per day. And to decrease, despite the extension of the Green Pass to all workplaces, designed precisely to encourage them, are also the first doses: in fact, in 7 days there are -53% new vaccinated. While 11 million doses remain crammed in the fridge. This is what is revealed by the new independent monitoring of the Gimbe Foundation updated at 6 am on October 27th.
