French hospitals are still welcoming fewer patients with Covid-19, including in the services taking care of the most serious cases, according to data from Public Health France published on Tuesday, June 22. There were 10,046 hospitalized patients, against 10,386 patients the day before, and 12,374 a week earlier. The number of admissions in the past 24 hours continued to drop, to 181 from 216 the day before, said the health agency.
Critical care services (resuscitation, intensive care and continuous monitoring) had 1,560 patients, almost 100 fewer than the day before (1,655). This key indicator, which fell below the 2,000 mark at the start of last week, has fallen sharply since the end of April, when the peak reached 6,000 patients. There were 47 admissions to these services in 24 hours.
Some 2,204 new cases were also detected during this time, and 52 people died from Covid-19. This brings the toll of the epidemic to 110,858 people since its inception in March 2020.
Since the start of the Covid-19 vaccination campaign, 18.7 million people have been fully vaccinated, either with two injections or with a single dose if they received the product from Janssen, or if they had already been infected before. Some 32.3 million people received at least one injection, or 48.1% of the population.
