In one week, “and in full period of leave for caregivers as for vacationers” in Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, “hospitalizations for covid have increased by 56%”, explained the regional agency health. In critical care, “this increase reaches 46%”.
The incidence rate in the region, which receives 30 million visitors each year and particularly in summer, also increased sharply in one week, reaching 562 per 100,000 against 404 per 100,000 at the end of July.
In Marseille, the sheave is full
In Marseille on Wednesday, 109 covid patients were hospitalized in the public assistance services of Marseille hospitals (AP-HM), including 32 in intensive care, occupying “all of the available sheave beds”.
The “white plan” allows “to have a legislative framework to recall caregivers on leave or to deprogram operations”, indicated the AP-HM, adding that it has not yet had to resort to these measures, in particular because ” few operations are scheduled for August ”. But “the positivity rate is very high, the signs are not good and we have a lot of concerns over the coming weeks,” explained the AP-HM.
