The report issued by Public Health France on Monday shows a further drop in the number of patients admitted to intensive care, which are 2,945 in French hospitals
The number of Covid-19 patients hospitalized in France continued to decline on Monday, with also a continuing decline in intensive care units where 2,945 patients are being treated, according to data from Public Health France.
On Monday, 140 additional people were counted in these critical care services which treat the most seriously ill patients, including those in intensive care beds.
The number of patients with Covid-19 and hospitalized in critical care services fell below 3,000 on Sunday, for the first time since the end of January. At the height of the third wave, between mid-April and early May, it was maintained around 6,000 patients.
126 deaths in 24 hours
In total, 16,596 Covid patients were hospitalized in France on Monday, including 529 admitted in the last 24 hours, against 16,775 the day before.
At the hospital, 126 Covid patients died in the last 24 hours, according to the health agency. In terms of vaccination, open since Monday to the entire adult population, 25,763,596 people have received at least one first dose (38.5% of the total population and 49.1% of the adult population) , according to the Department of Health.
The daily number of positive cases was at a very low level, with 1,211 cases over 24 hours (against 8,541 the day before). A figure largely explained by the fact that the tests are very little practiced on Sunday, but which remains nonetheless decreasing from one Monday to the next. The positivity rate, which measures the proportion of infected people compared to those who have been tested, is stable at 3.2%.
In terms of vaccination, 25,763,596 people received at least a first dose (38.5% of the total population and 49.1% of the adult population), according to the Ministry of Health.
And a total of 10,971,772 people received two injections, i.e. 16.4% of the total population and 20.9% of the adult population.
