Coronavirus increase continues at low levels in Sitges

The latest Covid-19 epidemiological data for Sitges remains at the low level, except for one figure, the rate of contagion (RT).

15 days after Easter, Sitges continues as one of the Catalan municipalities where the negative impact of Covid-19 is reduced. Today’s data includes the possible contagions derived from the Easter vacation, when there was an avalanche of people in the streets of the town, as well as in hospitality and commercial establishments.

In the last week there have been 17 new cases of Covid-19 reported in Sitges, which represent an increase of 1.08%. In the same period, the increase in all of Catalonia has been more than double, at 2.21%. It is the second consecutive week that there is a substantial difference between the growth of data at the local and national level.

The ‘rebound risk’ (or iEPG)* also continues at levels noticeably below the region’s average. Today it is at 114 points and throughout last week it oscillated between 100 and 200. The Catalan average is 311.

With the cumulative incidence rate (IA) over 14 days, it is also at a low level in Sitges (61.03), while throughout Catalonia it is at 262.36. And the percentage of PCR and antigen tests that result in positive results is also favourable, at 2.20%, compared to 6.04% across Catalonia.

The only negative element is the the rate of contagion (RT), which in Sitges is 1.83 (1.19 throughout Catalonia).

In Sant Pere de Ribes, the figures have grown in recent days and the ‘rebound risk’ (or iEPG)* stood at 232 points, while RT has reached 2.44 and the IA at 94.56.

*The potential rebound risk (iEPG) measures possible new cases diagnosed over the next 14 days, to evaluate the growth or slowdown in the contagion. It is calculated by multiplying the accumulated incidence rate (IA) and the rate of contagion (RT).
