The number of Covid patients “hospitalized in critical care” in Ile-de-France went back below the threshold of 1000, Thursday May 27. This is the first time since March 8, according to the daily count from the regional health agency (ARS). The ARS counted very exactly 979 patients with Covid-19 in the intensive care, intensive care and continuing care departments, according to a daily report stopped at 11 a.m., against 1,009 the day before.
The symbolic threshold of a thousand patients was crossed on March 9, at the start of the third wave, which had peaked in the region on April 20, with 1,792 patients in “critical care”. However, the occupancy level of these services remains well beyond the last low point (542) reached on January 8. By adding patients admitted to other sectors (infectious disease, pneumology, rehabilitation, etc.), the total number of “hospitalized Covid patients” in Ile-de-France (4,700) has, on the other hand, fallen to the lowest point at the start of year.
