The coronavirus epidemic has made 31 new deaths in 24 hours - the same number as the day before - in French hospitals, where the number of patients in intensive care continues to decrease, according to the assessment communicated Monday, June 1 by the Directorate General of health.

This brings the total death toll to 28,833, including 18,506 in hospital, but the figures for deaths in social and medico-social establishments (Ehpad) have not been updated since Friday and should be Tuesday.

"1,302 patients with a severe form of Covid-19 are hospitalized in intensive care", according to the press release, 17 less compared to the assessment on Sunday.

Four regions (Ile-de-France, Grand-Est, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Hauts-de-France) account for 73% of patients hospitalized in intensive care.
