There have been nearly 2,400 cases and some 19 hospitalizations per day during the past week. The number of reported cases is increasing.

Friborg has the lowest incidence in French-speaking Switzerland, with 187 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the past 14 days. Swiss average: 299.


16,610 new people tested positive in one week, 131 additional hospitalizations and 6 new deaths recorded in Switzerland and Liechtenstein: this is the assessment of the pandemic according to data from the Federal Office of Public Health (OFSP) communicated on Tuesday.

According to these weekly figures, there have therefore been nearly 2,400 cases and some 19 hospitalizations per day during the past week. The previous week, there had been fewer cases: around 1,450 per day. Hospitalizations are also up slightly.

In the last seven days, 57,522 tests have been carried out. The PCR test positivity rate is 23.5% (19% for rapid antigen tests). The intensive care unit occupancy rate is 72.7%: 2.2% Covid patients and 70.4% non-Covid.

In total, since the start of the pandemic, Switzerland has counted 13,357 deaths, 53,708 hospitalizations and 3,701,889 people who tested positive for coronavirus.

With 299 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (189 last Tuesday), the fourteen-day incidence rate in Switzerland is lower than that of all its neighbors, according to WHO figures: Germany (625), France (537), Austria (497) and Italy (444).

Switzerland now has 69.2% of its population fully vaccinated and 1% partially. 43.5% of the population received a booster dose. This proportion is 77.6% among those aged 65 and over.
