Covid-19: should we fear a saturation of hospitals?


VERIFICATION - The number of patients hospitalized in intensive care continues to increase, while the departments are already occupied by the usual patients.


. In recent days, the hospital - and in particular the intensive care units - has once again been the center of attention. Questioned on December 2 by

Le Figaro

, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran even warned that hospitals were going to be turned on. “

We are going to have 2,000 hospitalizations

(in intensive care, editor's note)

on December 5, which is a lot. We could be at 3000 in mid-December "

, estimated the minister, adding

" that beyond 3000, it will be necessary to think of deprogramming "

. That is to say, the less urgent operations will have to be canceled in order to be able to accommodate Covid patients, to the detriment of other patients.

The scenario announced by Olivier Véran is reminiscent of that experienced last winter, not to mention the terrible experience of spring 2020. The difference is that nearly 90% of adults are now vaccinated in France.

In this context, is saturation of intensive care services still possible?
