COVID-19: Pollution increases in France

The number of COVID-19 pollutants has risen to more than 116,000 cases in France, according to data from Public Health France, published Tuesday, the day after several health restrictions were lifted.

From Monday, anyone can access cinema halls, theaters, restaurants … without justifying the vaccination pass and the mask has fallen on shops, schools and culture and leisure areas.

The French government announced these mitigation measures in early March when the strong and long fifth wave of the epidemic was clearly declining, but this was no longer the case.

As of Monday, 116,618 positive cases had been reported in the laboratories. The average number of cases per day for seven days has increased to more than 60,000 since last Friday. 69,249 as of Tuesday.

The number of patients admitted to the hospital was stable (20,919), but the number of hospital admissions increased slightly in seven days. With 1,783 patients, the pressure on the intensive care units continued to ease slightly.

The disease reported 146 people in hospitals in 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths in France to 140,440 since the outbreak began two years ago.

Vaccination is stagnant, with 80.5% of the population receiving at least one dose of the vaccine.

The government has now decided to open a fourth dose vaccine for those over 80 years of age.

Mask is mandatory in transportation and healthcare companies and companies can always decide to impose it on their employees.
