A total of 253 Covid-19 patients are currently in hospitals. That figure has remained stable. Of these, 86 are in intensive care units (-10 percent).

In terms of infections, an average of 1,175 confirmed cases were added daily in the week from 6 to 12 July. This is an increase of 86 percent compared to the previous seven days. Some 61,700 tests were performed during that period (-5 percent), the positivity ratio rose to 2 percent.

The incidence – which represents the number of confirmed infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past fourteen days – is now 110.2, an increase of no less than 140 percent. The reproduction number – the extent to which sick people infect others – is currently 1.17. If that value is above 1, the epidemic increases in strength.
