French Prime Minister Jean Castex said that in France, more than 10 million people received the first dose of the covid-19 vaccine, reaching the government’s goal a week earlier than planned.
France hopes to strengthen the vaccination campaign and imposed a one-month embargo in the country last weekend, which will help control the latest round of epidemics.
The Ministry of Health announced that the situation in French hospitals was “serious”, but there are signs that the situation has improved after the closure of the hospital.
Currently, a record number of covid-19 patients are receiving intensive care, and this number may increase in the coming days. The Ministry of Health announced that there were 5,729 intensive care unit patients nationwide on Wednesday, the highest number in 2021.
