Covid-19 in France: 35 deaths in the last 24 hours, a thousand people in critical care

Since the beginning of the autumn in France, the epidemic has experienced a slight rebound: the incidence rate is slowly rising again while the number of hospitalizations and admissions in critical care is no longer decreasing. However, this situation does not necessarily herald a new epidemic “wave”.

After several days of increase, the hospitalization rate is declining. According to the latest report from Public Health France, 6,453 Covid-19 patients are hospitalized in the country this Thursday, against 6,465 Wednesday and 6,523 last Thursday. Of these patients, 273 were admitted to hospital in the past 24 hours.

On the other hand, the proportion of patients with severe forms is crumbling a little more each day: with 59 new entries in critical care services, 1,009 people are being taken care of this Thursday in these units reserved for the most severe cases. They were 1026 the day before, 1075 seven days ago.

Contamination up 18% in one week

The incidence rate continues to increase in France, all ages combined, almost returning to the alert threshold of 50 (48.2 on October 16). A “low plateau” seems to have been reached. There were 6,127 cases of contamination on Thursday, against 5,187 a week earlier. Or an increase of just over 18%.

Public Health France has also recorded 35 deaths in hospital in the last 24 hours linked to an infection with SARS-CoV-2. Since the start of the epidemic, 117,411 people have died in France.
