In the period 4 May – 17 May 2022, “the average Rt calculated on symptomatic cases – explains the ISS – was equal to 0.86, a decrease compared to the previous week”, when it was equal to 0.89.

Five Regions this week are still above the 15% alert threshold for the occupation of wards by Covid patients, despite the sharp general decline in hospitalizations. These are: Abruzzo at 17.1%, Calabria at 16.8%, Sicily at 15.3%, Umbria at 19.6% and Valle d’Aosta at 17.6%.
