France had 12,480 people hospitalized because of Covid-19, a figure at the lowest since mid-October.
The decline in the number of patients treated in critical care, for the most serious forms, also continued, with 2,106 patients, a lowest since October 19.
Same scenario for the daily number of new admissions to these services, with only 26 patients.
A traditionally low figure on Sunday, but for which it is necessary to go back to last September 20 (24 patients in intensive care units) to find such a low one.
The country was then at the very beginning of the second wave of the epidemic.
The trend is confirmed by the 7-day data, less subject to daily fluctuations, which gives 2,056 hospitalizations including 498 critical care admissions, against 2,094 and 523 respectively.
The disease has killed 13 patients over 24 hours, for a total number of 110,420 deaths since the start of the epidemic more than a year ago.
On the side of contaminations, the decline continues with 2,855 new cases over 24 hours, compared to the more than 5,000 recorded the previous Sunday.
Since the start of the vaccination campaign in France, 30,252,980 people have received at least one injection and 14,028,805 people have received two injections.
