With 3,743 Covid-19 patients in intensive care in France, on Sunday March 7, the number of patients admitted to these services reserved for the most serious cases of the disease due to SARS-CoV-2 reached its highest level since the end of month of November, according to data from Public Health France.

Lowered below the threshold of 2,600 patients concerned in early January, this indicator, central in estimating the pressure exerted by the epidemic on the health system, has continued to rise since. It is still far from the peak of the second wave of autumn (4,900 mid-November) and especially of the first wave in spring (7,000 at the beginning of April).
