Indicators go down, but do not enter vials

Despite the decline in incidence rates, the prevalence of the virus remains active in the region. And the British version continues its progress

Is the spread of coronovirus slowing in New Aquitaine? This is in any case suggesting the regional health agency’s weekly epidemic point this Friday. However, ARS warns against the temptation to soothe blocking gestures. The situation “remains very fragile and the trend can reverse very quickly”.

Decreasing number of cases and incidents

The number of new cases in the region has stabilized to around 7,000 in the last three weeks. The incidence rate reached 106.7 cases per 100,000 residents in 9 weeks (from 1 March to 7 March), a decrease of 13% from 122.7 / 100,000 a week. A trend was observed in all age groups except those under the age of 15, for whom it is constant.

All neo-Aquitaine departments have an incidence rate above the warning threshold (50/100 000) except for the Pyramid Threshold-Atlantic (42.7) which is the one exception with the lowest rate in the country. In the last three weeks, the incidence rate has been stable or decreasing in most departments except for Laut-et-Geron (+ 12%).

For the positivity rate of screening tests, the trend is also below 4.1% (against 4.9% at week 8).

Decrease in hospitalization but increase in glasses

The hospital continues to decline in the region. As of 9 March, 1,160 patients were hospitalized against 1,184 the previous week. Over 70% of them are over 70 years old. About one-third of patients (32.1%) are hospitalized in Gironde.

On the other hand, like national statistics, penetration into intensive care is increasing. 195 people are in intensive care or intensive care units (compared to 190 last week). An upward trend, but which still allows Nouvelle-Aquitaine to welcome 7 patients this week, led to intensive care from H├Ątes-de-France and PACA.

British version goes ahead

In the tested positive tests, the ratio of the British version increased from 52.6% a week to 62% at 8 weeks. The departments that recorded the highest rates are Gironde (75.8% of positive tests) and Lot-Gate-Gonone (72.2%).
