From July 24 to 30, 2,688 positive tests were performed to identify a mutation: 2,496 cases presented one of the specific mutations under observation, an increase of 93.1% (83.5%) compared to the previous week.
The virus spreads at a constant rate, and the proportion of variants remains very high La runian, mainly the beta variant (South African 54%).
The Delta variant is still in progress on the island. As of July 30, 2021, 1,117 cases of the Delta variant had been confirmed by screening or sequencing (compared to 709 last week), or 46% of the cases studied.
As of August 3, 2021, 68 clusters are active, 347 closed, and 15 in community distribution.
In active clusters, we note:

As of August 3, 2021, Kovid-19 positive patients occupied 45 resuscitation beds out of 117 resuscitation beds established in La Runion:
– In the resuscitation for Kovid-19, 31 patients were between 27 and 60 years of age
– In the resuscitation for Kovid-19, 14 patients were between 61 and 89 years of age.
The strong increase in medical admissions (39 in 3 days) prompted the need to convert 13 new Specialized Medicine beds into 13 Kovid Medicine beds.
Cirrhosis of the covid-19 virus continues to progress in La Runion. The alarming presence on the island of the Delta variant means that not everyone respects the barrier gestures and delays their immunization.
Prefecture and ARS remind all runners of the need:
– Be prepared for screening even at minor symptoms
– Respect the strict isolation prescribed to prevent the spread of the virus and its variants: – At least 10 days if you have been infected with Kovid-19, or at least 7 days if you have been in contact
– Get vaccinated without further delay or wait 2 months if you are infected; Observe the time limit for injection of Pfizer vaccine 2 dose 3 weeks from the first injection.
Available Pfizer and Johnson vaccines are effective against the new Delta variant of La Runion and reduce the risk of severe forms. Infectious disease of the delta variant, combined immunization can be achieved only if at least 80% of the population is vaccinated: Pfizer vaccine 2 doses (or 3 for those who are immunocompromised as per doctor’s advice) single dose for Johnson vaccine.
