The peak of the fifth wave seems to have been reached in France where the number of contaminations, still very high, has been falling slightly for a few days.

But the situation is not the same across the country.

Hit later by the Omicron wave, Brittany still records a slight increase in the number of contaminations with an incidence rate of 3,422 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

“The peak is still ahead of us”, warns this Friday Stéphane Mulliez, director of the regional health agency of Brittany, who hopes for an inversion of the curve “in the coming days”.

With the holidays, which open this Friday in the region, and the closing of classes for two weeks, the situation should indeed improve.

"But we must remain cautious because Brittany will also welcome holidaymakers, which can have the opposite effect", underlines Stéphane Mulliez.

Tense situation in hospitals

With the epidemic still not slowing down, the situation is becoming increasingly tense in hospitals in the region, which are now welcoming 642 patients for Covid reasons, a new record since the start of the health crisis.

Among them, 79 are hospitalized in intensive care, a figure which had climbed to 140 at the height of the first and third waves.

To relieve emergencies, saturated like all services, the Rennes University Hospital calls on the population to contact their doctor or to call 15 rather than systematically going to the emergency room.
