The intensive care services remain in high tension: they admitted 361 new patients during the day. A total of 4,759 patients are currently in intensive care in France. That’s 79 people less than Tuesday. This is the third day in a row that the number of patients in intensive care has fallen.

Another figure: 32,811 people are currently hospitalized due to Covid-19, whatever their condition, against 33,500 on Monday, November 16, a record figure that had not been reached during the first wave of Covid-19 in spring.

In the last 24 hours, 28,383 new cases of coronavirus contamination have been detected throughout France.

The Minister of Health Olivier Véran must give a new update on the epidemic this Thursday evening. Head of State Emmanuel Macron will speak next week. He could speak, not of a “deconfinement”, but of a “lightening” according to several media.
