In 24 hours, 362 Covid patients died in hospital, bringing the total number of deaths to 94,956 since the start of the epidemic.
Nearly 9 out of 10 intensive care beds currently occupied
Including Covid patients and others, nearly 9 out of 10 intensive care beds (6,833 out of 7,665 as of March 26) are currently occupied in France, according to other figures communicated to AFP by the Ministry of Health. In two separate stands at the JDD and at World, hospital doctors have alerted to this filling of resuscitations, fearing that this would force them to sort the patients for lack of a sufficient number of beds to accommodate them all. In addition to the only resuscitation services, which receive the most serious cases, 28,322 Covid patients are currently hospitalized in the country, according to Public Health France.
The number of people hospitalized has jumped in 24 hours
Over the past 24 hours, intensive care admissions have increased again, reaching 484 against 238 patients the day before. The number of patients in intensive care has been rising steadily since the lowest recorded on January 7 (2,573 patients), driven by the English variant considered to be more contagious and more virulent. The number of people hospitalized also jumped in 24 hours with 2,099 new admissions, more than double those recorded on Sunday (1,017).
