The average number of positive cases for Covid-19, calculated over a week, continues to increase, according to figures published on Sunday by the health authorities. The number of new cases identified is 81,283. The seven-day daily average, which smoothes the daily jolts, is up: it stands at 89,002 against 86,022 on Saturday and 65,251 a week ago.

At the same time, the number of people hospitalized for Covid-19 continues to decrease over a week, with 20,566 patients affected on Sunday against 20,917 a week earlier. Hospitals welcomed 323 new Covid patients on Sunday against 620 on Saturday.

Pressure continues to ease in intensive care units

The pressure continues to ease a little in the intensive care units, which have 1,642 patients on Sunday, including 30 admissions, against 1,644 on Saturday, and 1,855 last Sunday.

The disease has killed 27 people in 24 hours in hospitals for a total death toll of 140,933 in France since the start of the pandemic more than two years ago.

On the vaccination side, 54.27 million people in total have received at least one injection (80.5% of the total population), 53.35 million have a complete vaccination schedule (79.1%) and 39.40 million have received a booster dose.
