Flash survey with Bruno Kessler Institute shows marked case rise

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 17 - The Omicron variant of COVID-19 has reached 100% of cases in Italy with the BA.2 sub-variant "predominant" but the BA.5 sub-strain now up to 23.15%, the Higher Health Institute (ISS) said Friday.
    The ISS published a flash survey conducted with the regional laboratories and the Bruno Kessler Institute showing that Italy's COVID-19 contagion curve was rising significantly again.
    Italy has dropped almost all COVID restrictions apart from facemask mandates for public transport, excluding air travel.
