The incidence and transmissibility index of COVID-19 in all Italian regions is continuing to grow, according to data from the Ministry of Health.
The weekly incidence nationally reached the value of 53 cases per 100,000 inhabitants versus 46 per 100,000 inhabitants last week.
The Higher Institute of Health (ISS) stressed that the transmissibility index, based on hospitalization cases, is stable and above the epidemic threshold.
“It is believed that transmissibility assessments are insensitive to the recent increase in the number of tampons performed, as these assessments are based only on symptomatic cases and / or hospitalizations,” the ISS specified.
All autonomous regions and provinces are classified as moderate risk.
The occupancy rate in intensive care is 4.0 percent, compared to 3.7 percent last week.
Occupancy rates in medical wards nationwide rose to 5.3 percent, from 4.5 percent on October 28.
However, the bed occupancy rate remains below the alarm threshold, which has been set at 10 per cent for intensive care and 15 per cent for medical departments.
The number of new C) VID-19 cases not related to transmission chains is also increasing (8,326, compared to 6,264 last week).
