It was expected.

The Bordeaux University Hospital decided on Wednesday to launch its white plan, in consultation with the ARS Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the establishments of the territory, in the face of the new acceleration of the Covid-19 epidemic in a context of persistent hospital tensions in adult and pediatric emergencies.

The establishment points to “a risk of saturation of its hospital capacities in the coming weeks.

In this context, the non-urgent scheduled activity will be postponed to release caregivers and reopen intensive care and medical beds.

The exact number of these bed openings will be refined in the coming days.

The Gironde is particularly affected with record incidence rates since the start of the epidemic at nearly 500 per 100,000 inhabitants.

Currently, 73 patients with Covid-19 are hospitalized in the different departments of the CHU, including 35 in critical care.

In this period of strong epidemic recoveries (Covid-19, bronchiolitis, RSV), the CHU also wishes to recall the following measures which allow everyone to protect themselves: vaccination, reinforced respect for barrier gestures (wearing a mask, distancing, hand washing, ventilation) and good practices for relieving congestion in adult and pediatric emergencies: contact your attending physician, and, in the event of an immediate felt emergency, call 15.
