A boom in contaminations, but still no impact at the hospital… for the moment.
Figures from Public Health France, published on Friday, show a drop in hospitalizations, despite an increase in the number of admissions in 24 hours.
In critical care, the number of patients is increasing slightly.
A stable situation, therefore, which contrasts with the explosion of contaminations on the territory for several days.
This Friday, 6,802 patients are hospitalized in France due to a Covid-19 infection.
It's 30 less than Thursday.
There were 6,911 seven days ago.
The number of new admissions in 24 hours, however, has been on the rise for several days: 330 new patients have been admitted in the past 24 hours, against 292 Thursday and 220 last Friday.

In critical care (continuous monitoring, resuscitation and intensive care), there were 872 patients on Friday.
That's 4 more than Thursday, but 27 less than last Friday.
69 new admissions have been recorded there in the last 24 hours, 10 more than Thursday (59) and 36 more than Friday (33).
Since the start of the epidemic, 85,082 deaths due to Covid-19 have been deplored in the hospital, according to the latest figures from Public Health France.
There have been 26 in the last 24 hours, compared to 11 Thursday and 22 last Friday, over the same period.
As of Thursday, 21,909 positive cases had been identified over 24 hours.
A level never seen since mid-May.
A week ago, we crossed for the first time in several weeks the barrier of 10,000 daily contaminations.
An explosion of cases, linked to the Delta variant, more contagious, which spares no one in Europe and the world: this week, worldwide, 9% more contaminations have been recorded compared to last week .
