Covid-19 in France: 235 new deaths in 24 hours, more than 28,000 hospitalized patients

2022-01-21T18:13:44.573Z

The number of Covid patients treated in critical care continues its slow decline and stands, this Friday, at less than 3,800.



Hospitalizations for Covid-19 still on the rise, but the number of patients in critical care wards continues to fall slightly, official figures released this Friday evening show.

These units, which receive the most serious cases, had 3,792 Covid patients this Friday (including 329 admissions), against 3,842 the day before and 3,895 the previous Friday.

The total number of Covid-diagnosed patients cared for in hospital reached 28,457, of whom 3,077 were admitted in the past 24 hours.

They were 27,931 on Thursday, 24,511 last week.

A figure that has been rising steadily since the start of the year as contamination soars.

This situation is explained by the characteristics of the Omicron variant, which is certainly much more contagious than its predecessors but also gives less severe forms of the disease.

This translates into shorter hospital stays and less frequent intensive care admissions.

The epidemic has caused the death of 235 people in 24 hours, according to data from the authorities published on Thursday, bringing the total number of deaths in France to 128,349, since the start of the pandemic, almost two years ago.
