For this resuscitation team at the Orleans hospital (Loiret) there is an emergency: the state of health of one of the 76-year-old patients has deteriorated, he is no longer able to breathe on his own. The nurse announces to the person concerned that he will have to be asleep for several days. For the resuscitation staff, it is not yet the end of the tunnel, as France 3 notes, Thursday, November 19.
Of the 38 beds, only three are available “Even though the peak would have passed, even on the descent of the peak, there are still people who get infected, cases which worsen and patients who end up in intensive care“, deplores Dr. Grégoire Muller, head of the intensive care unit at the Orléans hospital. A total of 140 patients with Covid are admitted to the hospital. In the pneumology department, half of the 24 patients require continuous monitoring. If the number of intensive care admissions seems to be decreasing, the possible relaxation of measures and the coming end of year celebrations are already worrying.
