57 new deaths in 24 hours, the decline continues in intensive care

The coronavirus epidemic has caused 57 new deaths in 24 hours in French hospitals, where the number of intensive care patients continues to decline, according to the assessment announced Saturday by the Directorate-General for Health.

However, France, which is not experiencing a resumption of the Covid-19 epidemic, continues to count deaths due to a new coronavirus. About 57 new deaths were counted in French hospitals in 24 hours, which means that the total death toll amounts to 28,771 – including 18,444 at the hospital – announced on Saturday, May 30, the Directorate-General for Health (DGS).

However, the figures for deaths in social and medico-social facilities (Ehpad) will not be updated until Tuesday, the press release states.

The number of patients in intensive care continues to decline. “1,325 patients with a severe form of Covid-19 are admitted to intensive care,” according to the press release, 36 less compared to the assessment on Friday.

Four regions – Ile-de-France, Grand-Est, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and les Hauts-de-France – account for 73% of patients admitted to intensive care.
