2051 positive cases in one week

While more than 250,000 tests have been carried out in the last 7 days in the region, only 0.8% of these tests have been positive, which confirms that the viral circulation of Covid-19 has been sharply decreasing for a few weeks in the region. On average, 293 positive cases However, every day are recorded in the region (which represents 2051 cases from October 5 to 11), according to data provided by the ARS.

In Occitania, 90.7% of the population over 18 years old received at least a first injection of the vaccine against Covid-19 (and 89.7% of the population over 12 years old). This represents 4.5 million people in Occitania, where 8.6 million doses of vaccines have been administered since the start of the vaccination campaign.

End of free comfort tests

“As of October 15, RT-PCR tests and antigenic tests will no longer be
systematically covered by health insurance. Only tests carried out for screening purposes will be reimbursed, the tests carried out in order to obtain a health pass, will become chargeable. In addition, the self-tests will no longer allow obtaining the health pass, ”recalls ARS Occitanie.

Support for testing will continue for:
• People with a complete vaccination schedule or a contraindication to vaccination.
• Minors.
• People identified as part of the contact-tracing carried out by the Health Insurance.
• The beneficiaries of collective screening campaigns,
organized by the ARS (for example in middle and high schools).
• Patients with a medical prescription.

“These measures are accompanied by a new call for vaccination, to protect themselves, protect others and collectively come out of this unprecedented health crisis”, concludes the ARS.
