Coronavirus: France reaches 100,000 death mark

Coronavirus: France reaches 100,000 death mark

With 301 people dying in hospital on Friday due to coronavirus pollution, France reaches the 100,000 death mark, with 98,395 people dying since the outbreak began.

A total of 5,757 patients were enrolled in critical care services, according to Public Health France statistics. At the peak of the first wave, this number reached just 7,000 patients in early April 2020.

The pressure on hospital services is high as 30,326 Kovid patients are admitted to hospitals.

In order to contain the epidemic of the new coronavirus, the government is banking on the speed of the vaccine campaign, but also on strengthened restraint measures.

Thus the country was able to vaccinate 510,267 people on Friday, a record since the campaign began. Similarly, 10,507,294 people have received at least one injection since the campaign began in December 2020, or 15.7% of the population.

France began production of anticoagulant vaccines on Wednesday, expected to reach 250 million doses by the end of this year.

Delfarm, a subcontractor, began manufacturing the first anti-Kovid-19 vaccine in its factories, with Pfizer / BioMTech vaccine bottling. A total of 5 other international laboratories, including other subcontractors, including Sanofi, are expected to begin production of the vaccine in the coming weeks.

The executive aims to vaccinate 30 million people over the summer, including 10 million in mid-April and 20 million in mid-May.
