The pressure on hospitals continues to drop in France, with ever fewer patients with Covid-19 hospitalized, according to figures released on Friday, while the French will be able to receive the two doses of the vaccine in two different places. Hospitals had 8,044 Covid-19 patients, at the lowest for eight months, including 118 in critical care, indicates Public Health France. They were 8,232 the day before and 9,190 seven days before (1,162 in critical care Thursday and 1,389 seven days ago).
In the last 24 hours, 118 patients entered the hospital and 17 patients were admitted to critical care, reserved for the most seriously ill patients in 24 hours.
Vaccination, a bulwark against the Delta variant
To avoid renewed hospital pressure within a few weeks, fueled by the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant, the health authorities are counting, among other things, on vaccination. The Minister of Health Olivier Véran thus announced Friday a relaxation of the framework of the vaccination: from Monday, the candidates for the vaccination will be able to make an appointment for two injections in two different places, “including in the zones of holidays where you would have to go “, he declared during a trip to Villeneuve-la-Garenne (Hauts-de-Seine).
