More hospitalizations, but fewer visits to critical care

According to Public Health France, 27,230 people were hospitalized on Wednesday with a positive diagnosis for Covid-19, a figure which has been rising steadily since the start of the year as contaminations soar against the backdrop of an explosion of the Omicron variant.

In the past twenty-four hours, 436,167 people have tested positive, compared to 464,769 the day before. This brings the average over the past seven days to 320,069 daily cases against 287,603 the previous Tuesday. This calculation helps to smooth out the deviations observed from one day to the next, often artificially created by data collection problems.

Over the past 24 hours, 3,187 people have been admitted to hospital. The latter figure is higher than a week earlier, a sign that the pressure shows no signs of easing for the hospital as a whole.

Fewer severe forms of the disease

On the other hand, the situation is easing for the critical care services, which house the most serious cases. They currently welcome 3,852 people, a figure that has been declining for several days. In the past twenty-four hours, these services have recorded 330 admissions. As for several days, this figure is down from a week earlier.

The Omicron variant is much more contagious than its predecessors but it also gives less severe forms, which translates in particular into shorter hospital stays and less frequent admissions to intensive care.
