The document includes several indicators, namely the seven-day incidence and the transmissibility index (R(t)), nationally and by health region, among others.
The COVID-19 epidemic maintained a high incidence, suggesting a possible reversal to an increasing trend. The number of COVID-19 hospitalisations and specific mortality have stabilized. Surveillance of the epidemiological situation of COVID-19 should be maintained, and it is recommended to maintain the individual protection measures and booster vaccination, as well as a frequent communication of these measures to the population.
