Covid: new cases down 28% in Switzerland this week

Summary:
This week, 5,670 new Covid-19 cases were recorded in Switzerland, down 28% from the week before (7,843), continuing the downward trend of new numbers of recorded infections. © Fabiobalbi | Dreamstime.com The daily number of cases on a 7-day rolling average has more than halved (-58%) in 4 weeks falling from 1,924 to 810. With around 34% of Switzerland’s population vaccinated with at least one dose by 26 May 2021, vaccination appears to be having a positive impact on the spread of the virus in Switzerland. Over the previous four weeks the number of doses administered per 100,000 people has risen by 71% from 31 to 53 across the country. Switzerland’s latest reproduction rate (18 May 2021) remains below 1.00 at 0.81 and lower than the 0.90 recorded a week earlier.
