The incidence rate is 26.9: Covid-19: 2 deaths and 230 cases recorded in one week

From October 16 to October 22, 2021, 2 deaths and 230 cases were recorded in 7 days. The two deceased patients were over 75 years of age, both had co-morbidities and were not vaccinated. The positive rate is up 1%, against 0.6% the previous week) The weekly incidence rate continues to decline and stands at 26.9 per 100,000 inhabitants, against 27.3 the previous week. The number of screenings carried out during the week is however down sharply, with 23,538 tests carried out, a decrease of 35%. “While the indicators remained stable last week, the health situation has tended to worsen since last weekend” warns the prefecture, which we publish the press release below (Illustrative photo rb / )

Last week, the number of cases decreased very slightly with an incidence rate of 26.9 / 100,000 inhabitants (against 27.3 the previous week). Hospitalizations and resuscitation activity for Covid-19 patients are stabilizing. This week, however, we deplore 2 deaths linked to Covid-19.

On the other hand, while last week, the number of cases was 33 per day, the average of the last 4 days exceeds 50 cases per day. The main vector of contamination highlighted by the contact case tracking unit remains family festive gatherings. This constitutes a serious alert and must immediately result in a remobilization in respect of barrier gestures and the wearing of a mask where it is imposed.

The situation therefore remains fragile on the island and vaccination coverage is still insufficient, since only 69.1% of eligible people (over 12 years old) have a complete vaccination schedule today. We are therefore not currently sufficiently protected at the collective level.

A further worsening of the number of cases in the coming days will inevitably lead to a return of braking measures. With the resumption of social life, barrier gestures must be applied by everyone at all times in order to limit the circulation of the Covid and avoid any epidemic rebound. Other prevention and protection measures must also be implemented: get vaccinated as soon as possible, get tested if there is the slightest doubt or if there is contact, and participate in contact tracing to help stop any chain of viral transmission. .

– Health situation –

The Prefecture and the Regional Health Agency regret to announce on October 26 the death, which occurred during the last 7 days, of two patients from La Runion, aged over 75 years. Both had comorbidities and were not vaccinated.

From October 16 to October 22, 230 cases were recorded in 7 days. The positivity rate is up 1% (0.6% the previous week). The weekly incidence rate continued to decline and stood at 26.9 / 100,000 inhabitants (27.3 the previous week). The number of screenings carried out during the week is down sharply: 23,538 tests carried out (-35%). This decrease is explained in particular by the end of the free tests to have the health pass.

Among the 230 new cases during the period:
– 211 cases are classified as indigenous,
– 19 cases are classified imports.

Taking into account the 53,879 recoveries and 374 deaths since the start of the health crisis, 415 cases are still active today. 54,668 cases have been investigated to date by ARS, Public Health France and Assurance Maladie.

– Search for Covid-19 mutations –

From October 16 to October 22, 190 positive tests were screened to identify a mutation: 158 cases presented one of the specific mutations under surveillance, a proportion of 83% against 79% the previous week.

The Delta (Indian) variant represents almost all the mutations detected, ahead of the Beta (South African) variant which is still present in very low proportions.

– Update on clusters –

As of October 16, 2021, 5 clusters are active and 494 have been closed. Among the active clusters, there are 4 lev criticity clusters Saint-Denis (2), Saint-Paul (1) and Sainte-Marie (1). No moderate criticality clusters were observed this week.

Regarding the other indicators:

The incidence rate is increasing in the following age groups:
– among 0-14 year olds: + 21.7%
– among 15-24 year olds: + 4.4%
– among 25-34 year olds: + 4.5%

It is declining in the following age groups:
– among 35-44 year olds: – 5.1%
– among 45-64 year olds: – 9.7%
– among those over 65: – 26.2%

As of October 26, 2021, 5 resuscitation beds were occupied by Covid-19 positive patients on the 82 critical care beds installed in La Runion. No patient currently hospitalized is vaccinated.

Immunization update

More than 952,000 injections since the start of the campaign: from October 18 to 24, more than 13,000 injections were given. The number of first injections has dropped slightly this week. To date, 509,987 people have received at least one injection. 72.6% of the eligible population (over 12 years old) is involved in a vaccination course (or 59.6% of the total population), 69.1% of the eligible population has a complete vaccination schedule (or 56, 7% of the total population)

The health situation is stabilizing with, however, an increase in cases observed in recent days. The vaccination rate is still insufficient. In order to avoid an epidemic rebound, it is advisable to scrupulously pursue the barrier gestures, to be vaccinated without further delay, to be tested and to isolate oneself in the event of symptoms or if you are a contact person, and participate in the contact. tracing.

The prefecture and the ARS remind all Runionnais of the need to:
– respect barrier gestures

– be ready for screening at the slightest symptom

– respect the strict isolation prescribed to prevent the spread of the virus and its variants:
• at least 10 days when you are infected with Covid-19,
• at least 7 days if you are in contact.
• no longer delay vaccination or wait 2 months if you have been infected:
• 2 doses for the Pfizer vaccine (or 3 for some people on the advice of their doctor) and a single dose for the Janssen vaccine.

– Observe the injection time for the 2nd dose of Pfizer vaccine of 3 weeks from the 1st injection.

Booster dose: the people concerned are invited to perform their injection in order to reactivate their immunity and thus maintain a good level of protection:

• people over 65,
• people with co-morbidities are at risk of severe forms,
• severely immunosuppressed people,
• people who have been vaccinated with Janssen
• caregivers: professionals in the health sector and the medico-social sector in contact with patients, professionals in medical transport.
• the entourage of people with immune deficiencies (people over 18 years of age).
