less than 800 patients hospitalized in the department


With 799 Covid + patients hospitalized in the Rhône this Sunday, February 14, the week ends below the symbolic bar of 800 hospitalizations. We must go back to October 20 to find this threshold (788 patients hospitalized on that date). Over the weekend, 48 new patients were admitted to hospital while 43 people were able to return home.

The pressure remains strong in intensive care, however, where 142 patients – including 7 new patients admitted during the weekend – remain hospitalized. The Rhône maintains a high ICU admission rate of 3.6 / 100,000 inhabitants during week 5, the 2e highest rate in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, according to the weekly bulletin of Public Health France (SpF) dated February 11.

While they remain higher than the national average (193/100 000 inhabitants), the incidence rates continue to fall in the Rhône and the Metropolis of Lyon where they reached 216.5 / 100,000 and 220.2 / 100,000 for the sliding week of February 6 to 11 while the positivity rate was 6.8%. If these signals seem rather encouraging when the rate of circulation of variants was estimated at 13.5% on January 27 in the region, the evolution of the indicators is more worrying on the side of the medico-social establishments (EMS).

3,241 deaths since 1is mars

Indeed, for the 3e consecutive week, the number of cases of Covid-19 in the Rhone EMS while the reports are rather on the decline in the ARA region. 170 cases (+19) were thus reported in nursing homes during week 5 and 19 resident deaths were recorded (+5), including 7 within establishments. In total, 950 residents died in the establishments to which are added the 2,291 deaths in the hospital (+4 in the last 24 hours). In total, 3,241 people have been swept away by the Covid-19 in the Rhône since 1is mars 2020.

In week 4, the region again recorded a moderate excess of mortality, but this was not the case for the Rhône, which had recorded excess mortality during weeks 2 and 3.
