The incidence rate
The incidence rate of covid-19 cases in the region, that is to say the number of new cases diagnosed by PCR test during the last seven days, fell sharply on Friday in Brittany. It stands at 183.8 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, a drop of 2.8 points in three days. But the ARS specifies that the evolution of recent days, with a sharp drop noted on Friday, “must take into account the sharp decrease in screening activity on the bank holiday of Monday, April 5 (Easter Monday)”. The positivity rate is 6.1%.
Ille-et-Vilaine retains the highest incidence rate, at 272.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (-5.7). Morbihan (182.1; -8.5), Côtes-d’Armor (170.9; +7.7) and Finistère (77.3; -1.5) follow.
The number of hospitalized patients is up slightly on Monday in Brittany, with 783 hospitalizations in progress (+3 compared to Friday). 141 patients are cared for in the intensive care units of Breton hospitals, which constitutes a notable increase (+11). Seven deaths are to be deplored in the last 72 hours, the toll therefore climbs to 1,381 deaths in hospital.
Brittany has recorded 2,245 new cases since Friday, bringing to 118,611 the number of people infected in the region since the start of the epidemic. Among these 2,245 cases, 1,026 are found in Ille-et-Vilaine, 500 in Morbihan, 419 in Côtes-d’Armor and 300 in Finistère.
Brittany currently has 119 clusters under investigation by ARS Bretagne (+2 in three days): 46 in Ille-et-Vilaine, 30 in Côtes-d’Armor, 27 in Morbihan and 16 in Finistère .
On the evening of April 11, 789,945 vaccinations had been carried out in Brittany (of which 201,292 concerned the second injection): 217,607 in Finistère (of which 55,694 concerned the second injection), 214,750 in Ille-et-Vilaine (of which 54,389 relate to the second injection), 181,795 in Morbihan (of which 46,446 relate to the second injection) and 175,793 in Côtes-d’Armor (of which 44,763 relate to the second injection).
