AGI – All the Italian regions are classified as low risk except one, Sardinia, which presents a moderate risk. The mean Rt is less than 1 in the lower limit of the range, and therefore with a transmissibility compatible with a type one scenario.

This is what emerges from the draft of the weekly monitoring report of the Ministry of Health and ISS, while Health Minister Roberto Speranza announced that “there will be other Regions in the white zone”.

In the period 19 May-1 June, the mean Rt calculated on symptomatic cases was equal to 0.68 (range 0.67-0.69), stable compared to the previous week, and below one even in the upper limit.

A further decrease is observed in the number of new cases not associated with transmission chains: 4,992 against 7,424 in the previous week. The percentage of cases detected through contact tracing activity is stable: 40.3% versus 40.1% last week.

The percentage of cases detected through the onset of symptoms was also stable (38.6 versus 38.6%). Finally, 21.0% were diagnosed through screening activities.

The vaccination campaign is progressing rapidly and the incidence is at a level that would allow the containment of new cases.

Continue on drop in the weekly incidence which stands at 26 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the week from May 31 to June 6 against a value of 36 of the previous seven days. The incidence falls in all regions and autonomous provinces and is below the value of 50 per 100,000 inhabitants every 7 days throughout the territory. This is what emerges from the draft of the weekly monitoring report of the Ministry of Health and ISS.

This week, no Italian region exceeds the critical occupancy threshold for beds in the intensive care or medical area. The employment rate in intensive care is 8%, below the critical threshold, with a decrease in the number of people hospitalized from 1,033 of the previous monitoring to 688.

The employment rate in medical areas nationwide drops further (8%). The number of people hospitalized in these areas went from 6,482 to 4,685
