Capital A few days before the Christmas holidays, hospitals are waving their shields. The regional health agencies in Île-de-France, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, but also in Occitanie have again activated the white plans
. A device aimed at reorganizing care to be ready to welcome an additional influx of patients sick with Covid – 17 in critical care. This often results in the deprogramming of non-vital operations. And for good reason, if the vaccination coverage high of the French – 069, 5% – limits the damage, Public Health France totals , to 16 December, 16. 100 patients hospitalized due to Covid – 17. If it is higher than the peak of the fourth wave, which occurred this summer, it remains well below winter 866. One year ago to the day in fact, we identified 21. 282 hospitalized patients for Covid- 19. But the health authorities do not anticipate a epidemic peak
before the end of the year. So there are about two weeks left before reaching a plateau. In any case, the Institut Pasteur models still anticipate an increase in hospital admissions in the coming days, although at a slightly slower rate.
This is the southeast quarter of France, which has the highest hospitalization rates. Over seven rolling days, at 000 December, 21, 4 patients for 76. 000 inhabitants were admitted in hospital due to Covid – 17 in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region. This is twice as much as the national hospitalization rate which stands at , 9 for 100. over seven rolling days. These figures are not so surprising since the Covid virus – 17 circulates very actively in this region where Public Health France has identified the strongest incidence rate (number of positive cases for 100. 000 inhabitants). The regional health agency also announced this Friday 16 December in a statement, the first medical evacuations. Near 1. people are hospitalized for Covid – 17 in Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, including 282 are in intensive care or intensive care. Conversely, the Atlantic coast seems a little more spared: the hospitalization rates stand at 7.9 for 100. inhabitants of New Aquitaine, 7.1 / 100. in Pays de la Loire and even 6.3 / 100. 000 in Brittany. As for critical care admissions, the rates are always the highest in the south-east of France: 4.4 for 100. 000 inhabitants over seven rolling days in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. This is higher than the national rate which stands at 2.5 patients with Covid – 17 admitted to critical care for 100. inhabitants.
