The fifth wave of Covid-19 infections has peaked, said Virginie Masserey, a health expert at the the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) on Tuesday, reported RTS.
Despite continued high numbers of daily infections, the fifth wave has peaked, according to the health expert. In addition, Covid-19 patient hospital numbers remain stable, she said. There are around 200 Covid-19 patients in intensive care (ICU), roughly a quarter of all ICU patients.
We have possibly reached the highest level and see a downward trend, said Masserey, who heads infection control and vaccinations at the FOPH. Hospital admissions are also down.
