The incidence rate (number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants) is thus increasing well beyond confined areas (Ile-de-France, Hauts-de-France, Alpes-Maritimes, Eure and Seine-Maritime). Between March 1 and March 19, the number of departments with an incidence rate above the alert threshold of 250 increased from 21 to 42, with a large part of the departments in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region and the east of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
In hospitals, the number of people in intensive care is also increasing sharply and is no longer very far from the peak of 4,849 patients reached during the second confinement, in mid-November.
