After reaching its highest epidemiological data during the month of July, Sitges has returned to the most favourable scenarios of months ago, when it was placed as one of the populations with the lowest rates of Covid. The rebound risk (iEPG)* is again around 100 points, while the other indicators are also below the recommended limits.
The rebound risk came close to 6,000 points in early July but today (Thursday) it is at 109. When it drops below 100, the risk is moderate. The decline in positivity has also been especially relevant; that is, the number of PCR tests and antigen tests that test positive is now at 4.5%, which is half a point below the WHO mark as a sign that the pandemic is under control.
The rate of contagion (RT) is 0.58 (the maximum recommended is 1), while the incidence rate at 14 days is 184. The Catalan average is 363.
The number of new cases continue to fall. In the last 7 days there have been 22. Last week there had been 27, whilst the previous week it had been 81. During the first week of July the figure had reached 365. The active incidence rate for the past 7 days is particularly low at 59.
In Sant Pere de Ribes, the data also continues to improve. The rebound risk is 170, the RT is 0.79, and the positivity of cases is 4.68%. The incidence rate over 14 days is 216 and there have been 25 new cases recorded this week.
*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).
