The incidence rate is slowly decreasing but still too high to allow the pandemic to be managed nationwide by means of containment i.e. identifying cases and tracing their contacts.
Therefore, we must continue to reduce the number of cases, including through measures to reduce the possibility of social gatherings, and continue with the campaign to achieve high population vaccine coverage as quickly as possible.

The pressure on hospitals is decreasing although the situation remains above the critical threshold in certain regions/autonomous provinces.

There is a slight increase recorded for the second consecutive week in the estimated average Rt transmissibility indicator calculated on symptomatic cases, which however remains below the epidemic threshold.

The now prevalent circulation in Italy of the variant B.1.1.7 (known as the UK variant) and the presence of other variants that can partially evade immune responses, means that the epidemic must continue to be managed with particular caution and in a progressive manner.
