The figures for the last 7 days show a slight decrease in the number of cases with a weekly incidence rate of 135.9/100,000, positivity rates falling below the alert threshold and an increase in the number of test screenings. This relative decline in indicators should be viewed with caution. The situation in the region remains delicate and contrarian.
The Prefecture and Regional Health Agency regrets announcing this Tuesday, June 8, 2021, that 9 patients from Reunion Island died during the past 7 days.
(1 person aged 45-64, 2 people aged 65-74 and 6 people over 75).
From 29 May to 4 June, 1,160 cases were identified in 7 days, with the positivity rate falling below the alert threshold (5.4% last week) to 4.4%, an incidence rate weekly below 135.9. / 100,000 residents (compared to the previous 137.5 weeks) and an increasing number of screenings.
