Covid, here is the summer wave: + 32% infections with Omicron 5 – breaking latest news

Rome, June 16, 2022 – The curve of Covid contagion is going up. If until last week it continued to fall, now the trend has reversed. This is certified by the Gimbe Foundation in its weekly monitoring, which certifies + 32.1% of new cases on June 8-14. They also increase again deaths (+ 6.1%), while compared to last week the ordinary hospitalizations, even if slightly (-3.3%); the number of beds occupied in intensive care is -16.4%. The rise in infections is “probably driven by the under-Omicron BA.5 variant“, the report continues. In 99 provinces there is a percentage increase in new cases, with Cagliari registering an incidence of more than 500 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants.

That’s enough to talk about a “summer wave“. Word of the Undersecretary for Health Pierpaolo Sileri, who nevertheless reassures: the wave” has already begun in other European countries and now also in Italy but, it should not be viewed with fear or obsession “, is the opinion of the Undersecretary interviewed a to ‘Italy has awakened’ on Radio Cusano Campus, also because “I think it will be self-limiting”.

Omicron 5 it’s a “variant more widespread “, explains Sileri, but” is not creating weight problems in hospitals. Unlike last year, most of the population – she said – is vaccinated, got two doses, and 70% got the third dose. Everything will be under control. “

The undersecretary, however, calls for the usual cautions: distance and hygiene, masks in crowded places. Precisely in terms of protective devices for the nose and mouth, almost all obligations fell just yesterday, except on public transport (here the latest news). The easing of the measures could push the infections again: we will see the relapses.
