We obtained 8.4 ks of Swift-XRT observations (id=32038) of type-II SN2011ef (CBET 2772) spanning the time interval July 22nd - July 26th. Observations were entirely performed in Photon Counting mode. No X-ray source is detected at the optical position, with a 3-sigma upper limit of 5.1E-03 c/s corresponding to a flux limit of ~3E-13 erg/s/cm2 (0.3-10 keV energy range). We thank the Swift team for scheduling these ToO observations.
