After having disappeared for some time, the tents where the antigenic tests are carried out have reappeared in front of certain Toulouse pharmacies.

It must be said that cases of Covid-19 contamination are soaring in Occitania.

“The number of new Covid cases has increased by 56% in one week in our region”, indicates the Regional Agency in its last weekly bulletin published on Tuesday.

[#Covid19] +56% new cases in one week: #Covid contaminations are accelerating in #Occitanie.

The epidemic is still not over.

To avoid a new epidemic rebound this summer, it is now that we must continue to be vigilant.

Every day, 3,034 new positive cases are recorded in the region, i.e. 21,241 additional during the week between June 7 and June 13.

And it is in Haute-Garonne that the incidence rate remains the highest with 405 new positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants, followed by Gard and its 396 cases per 100,000 inhabitants when the regional average is 339.9 positive cases.

14 Covid-related deaths in the last 7 days

If the rebound is indisputable, due in particular to the sub-variants of Omicron BA.4 and BA.5, it has not yet had any effect on hospitalizations.

“At this stage, the situation remains fairly stable in hospitals: more than 1,000 people carrying the virus are still currently hospitalized in Occitania”, specifies the ARS, which calls for caution, in particular for the maintenance of barrier gestures.

This figure has dropped over the past week (- 35), particularly in intensive care and critical care where there are still 56 people.

Since the start of the Covid-19 epidemic, 7,805 people have died of the coronavirus in the region, including 14 more in the last seven days.
