✏️ Health situation update
COVID-19: INDICATORS ARE ON THE RISE AGAIN
With 13,600 new cases of the coronavirus this weekend, the epidemic is picking up slightly in France.
According to Santé Publique France, 6,329 cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in 24 hours, compared to 5,005 last Sunday. On average, 5,858 cases are reported each day, an increase of 11% in seven days. However, the data collected over the weekend should be taken with a certain amount of caution, due to the large number of screening sites that were closed.
Apart from the infections, the incidence rate, i.e. the number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants in France, continues to rise. While it was 51 last week, it had risen to 57 by the evening of 31 October. In all, 55 departments are above the alert threshold, set at 50, compared with 32 departments on Sunday 24 October. With an incidence rate of 102, Bouches-du-Rhône remains the most affected department in mainland France. In overseas France, the incidence rate even reached 192 in Guyana.
A RESURGENCE IN HOSPITALS
The resumption of the epidemic is also confirmed in hospitals. In seven days, the number of deaths in hospital has increased by 7%.
The number of new admissions to hospitals has also picked up, with 105 new hospitalisations in 24 hours, compared to 63 seven days ago.
A total of 6,572 people are in hospital with Covid-19 infection. Of these, 1,046 people are in critical care due to the coronavirus, up from 1,018 a week ago, with 20 new admissions on Sunday.
