• In two months, the incidence rate in the department rose from 60 to more than 400 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

    For two weeks, it has been declining little by little.

  • Currently, 302 Covid-19 patients are hospitalized, 62 are in intensive care and occupy 70% of the beds in this service.

  • In the department, 77.58% of the inhabitants have received at least one dose of vaccine.

The Alpes-Maritimes are one of the departments most affected by Covid-19, in metropolitan France.

The incidence rate, the number of positive cases per 100,000 population, was 335 Monday evening.

However, it is much less important than at the beginning of August, when more than 700 people tested positive per 100,000 inhabitants, one of the biggest Covid peaks with this indicator.

Since then, it has been steadily declining.

It is among 20-29 year olds that it remains the highest, at 666.

The positivity rate, the proportion of tests that are positive among all the tests, is 2.9%.

For 94.2% of infected cases, these are variants carrying the L452R mutation, including Delta.

Tensions on critical care beds

"The active line of patients admitted to conventional hospitalization and critical care is still progressing," said the Regional Health Agency (ARS) Paca in its last update on the epidemic situation.

She added: “Hospital mortality from Covid-19 cases remains high.

The tension on critical care beds is very high and impacts the care of Covid and non-Covid patients in critical care.

"

According to the Covid tracker site, which uses data from Public Health France, the situation is worse than during the first wave.

In spring 2020, there were up to 282 people hospitalized simultaneously.

Currently, 302 Covid-19 patients are hospitalized, 62 are in intensive care and occupy 70% of the beds in this service.

The vaccination campaign continues in the Alpes-Maritimes.

As of Monday, 851,466 people had received at least one dose of vaccine, or 77.58% of the population.
