Virus variants

Source: FOPH – Status: 14.01.2022, 08.20h

The share of the various variants under the national SARS-⁠CoV-⁠2 monitoring programme is temporarily not representative.
Currently the search is specifically for the Omicron variant. Suspected omicron cases have preference when it comes to performing and reporting sequencing, also under the national SARS-⁠CoV-⁠2 surveillance programme. This is leading to an overestimation of the share of the omicron variant.

Estimated share of the different virus variants, 7-⁠day average.

B.1.351 – Beta7-⁠day average from 04.01.20220,0%
P.1 – Gamma7-⁠day average from 04.01.20220,0%

Reproductive number Re

Source: FOPH – Status: 14.01.2022, 08.20h

The effective reproductive number (Re) indicates how many people an infected person infects on average under the current conditions. If the number is less than 1, there will be fewer new infections. If the number is greater than 1, the virus is spreading more intensely. In order to curb the spread of the virus, the reproductive number must be less than 1.
Reproductive number Re Switzerland, 04.01.20221,17
Average of the last 7 Re values1,19
