Covid Lombardy, almost half of the cases for Delta variant in July


Almost half of covid cases in Lombardy in July are linked to the Delta variant of the coronavirus. In the first seven days of the month, the Alpha variant is at 24% (142 cases) and the Delta variant at 45% (270 cases), although out of a total of only 603 genotypes performed. These are the results of the monitoring of new cases to identify the variants of the Welfare Directorate of the Lombardy Region. In June, the predominant variant was Alpha with 64% versus Delta at 11% on 1979 genotyping performed in the month. “These data – remarked the vice president and councilor for Welfare of the Lombardy Region, Letizia Moratti – confirm the validity and importance of vaccination which today sees 10 million administrations touched in Lombardy. The war, however, is not yet won and I appeal again to all the undecided so that they can proceed with confidence to join the campaign. I refer in particular to young people, and their families, for whom 500 thousand special slots will be available from 23 August, bookable immediately “.
In 88% of cases, those infected with Covid19 in the last few days are unvaccinated patients. Instead, only 6% of the infected had completed the vaccination cycle. Since January 1, 19,374 genotypes have been performed for 16,916 patients and since June the Region has begun to do so for all new cases. Overall, the patients for whom the Delta variant has been identified are 522, equal to 3% of all cases subjected to genotyping so far.
