While the Omicron variant is spreading in Europe, France records a new day marked by an increase in contamination.



Several countries, including France, have suspended flights with southern Africa in order to limit the risk of cases of the Omicron variant arriving on their soil.

The discovery of this new variant of Covid-19 is particularly worrying for France where the circulation of the virus is always more critical according to the latest data from Public Health France.

37,218 new cases were recorded this Saturday by the health authorities, a level not reached for seven months.

The day before there were 34,446 new contaminations and 22,678 last Saturday.

34 new deaths from the infection have been recorded in the past 24 hours, up from 60 yesterday.

• 37,218 positive cases were identified in 24 hours (versus 22,678 last Saturday), a level not reached for 7 months.

At the hospital, 9,271 Covid-19 patients are currently being treated, according to the latest figures from Public Health France.

There were 9,181 the day before and 7,974 seven days earlier.

Hospitals have recorded 388 new admissions in France in the past 24 hours, against 791 yesterday (but the decline observed is undoubtedly the result of the weekend).

As for the patients most severely affected by the virus, 1,617 people are currently being treated in critical care services.

They were 1,563 the day before and 1,333 seven days ago.

Nearly 7 million reminders administered

Faced with this unpleasant observation, the good news of the day concerns vaccination: "3 million appointments for the booster dose have been made since Thursday," Minister of Health Olivier Véran announced on Friday.

Since the start of the vaccination campaign in France, 51,905,296 people have received at least one injection (i.e. 77% of the total population) and 50,820,848 people now have a complete vaccination schedule (i.e. 75.4% of the population total).

As a reminder, last week 75.1% of French people had a complete vaccination schedule.

333,127 injections have been performed over the past 24 hours and a total of 6,996,823 booster doses have been administered compared to 6,583,934 yesterday.
