the number of hospitalizations and resuscitation patients is still decreasing

The number of people in hospitals and assumptions for the resuscitation services for contamination with the new corona virus has continued to decline in France over the past 24 hours, the Directorate-General for Health said in a statement on Friday.

The decrease in the number of coronavirus patients admitted to intensive care continued on Friday, May 22, with 1,701 patients in serious intensive care condition, 44 less in 24 hours, says the Directorate-General for Health (DGS), who, on the other hand, did not provide an updated assessment of the deaths of Covid-19 in France.

The number of intensive care patients, which specifically reflects the pressure on the hospital system, has dropped since April 9 after reaching a peak of 1448. According to the DGS press release, a total of 17383 people were hospitalized on Friday, 200 fewer people than Thursday.
