The Covid-19 epidemic was still ebbing on Sunday, given the daily figures published by Public Health France: the number of new cases is falling, as are that of hospital admissions.
The decline of the fifth wave carried by the Delta variant and then by its very contagious successor Omicron continues: 384 new hospital admissions were recorded on Sunday, against 712 the day before and 1,834 on Tuesday.
As for the intensive care units, there were 59 admissions, against 62 the day before and 206 on Tuesday.
A total of 25,277 people infected with Covid-19 are currently hospitalized, including 2,491 in "sheaves".
The government mentioned a passage below the threshold of 1,500 patients in critical care by mid-March among the criteria for lifting all or part of the vaccination pass in force for a month.
The Minister of Health also mentioned contamination below an incidence rate of 500 per 100,000 inhabitants, against 646 in the latest figures available.
Vaccination continues, but at a slow pace
For new cases, 42,600 were confirmed on Sunday.
With this figure, the seven-day average, which gives an idea of the real evolution of the epidemic, declines to 57,500 cases, against 59,844 on Saturday.
The human toll of the epidemic continues to increase, but at a slower rate than in previous days: there were 52 deaths in 24 hours in hospital, against 93 the day before.
Since the start more than two years ago, 138,135 victims have been identified in France.
Vaccination continues at a slow pace.
According to figures from the General Directorate of Health (DGS), 54.19 million French people have received at least one dose (80.4% of the population), 53.21 million are fully vaccinated (78.9% of the total population), and 38.92 million received a booster dose.
