Covid-19 and Delta variant: Balagne affected


This is the noise that has been running in Balagne for several days, many young people, at the detours of a few evenings and other festive events, have contracted the Delta variant of Covid-19. We are talking about several hundred people according to the state services. A weevil cluster that could mark the arrival of the 4 th  wave dreaded and expected by health professionals and the ARS of Corsica. At the start of the 2021 summer season, where we are?

ARS press release about the balanin cluster.
If the causes of this upsurge are multiple, among them, two factors are clearly identified: the relaxation of the population vis-à-vis health measures, and summer over-attendance. And only 43.6% of Corsicans have so far received the two doses of vaccine, a figure far removed from the collective immunity threshold so expected.

Over the last 72 hours, no less than 101 new contaminations have been identified in Haute-Corse. The positivity rate drops to 1.7%, a figure all the more alarming as it could increase further. In any case, this is the opinion of Doctor François Agostini, President of the Confederation of Medical Unions in Corsica.
