While France is gradually regaining its freedoms, an update on the Covid-19 epidemic with figures from Public Health France and the Ministry of Health.

CONTAMINATIONS

This Saturday, July 3, 3,006 new cases of Covid-19 were identified in 24 hours, according to figures from Public Health France, a total of 5,783,654 cases confirmed since the start of the epidemic.

The positivity rate over the last seven days, which is the percentage of the number of people tested positive out of the total number of people tested, is 0.8%.

HOSPITALIZATIONS

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 1,123 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). Over the past 24 hours, 802 patients have entered hospital and 174 patients have been admitted to critical care, reserved for the most seriously ill in 24 hours.

DEATHS

17 people have died of Covid-19 in hospitals in the past 24 hours. The total toll shows 111,181 dead since the start of the epidemic, including 84,708 in hospital.

THE VACCINATION

Since the start of the vaccination campaign in France, more than a third of French people have a complete vaccination schedule: 23,839. 666 people, or 35.4% of the total population. 33,961,307 people received at least one injection (i.e. 50.9% of the total population).

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).
