The Covid-19 epidemic continues to wane. For the first time since the end of August 2020, France fell back on Friday, June 11, below the symbolic bar of 5,000 cases per day on average over seven rolling days. 4,687 cases of Covid-19 were detected on Friday on average over a week (6,953 cases, last Friday), according to latest data published by Public Health France, Friday. This threshold was set by the Head of State, Emmanuel Macron, for the second deconfinement in December.

The decrease in the number of contaminations is accompanied by good figures at the hospital, where 12,712 people are now hospitalized for Covid-19, including 2,163 in critical care (resuscitation, intensive care and continuing care services). 313 patients have been hospitalized in the past 24 hours. The incidence rate (number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants) also continues to decline (56.8), and is approaching the alert threshold of 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

On the vaccination side, France is approaching the 30 million mark for first-time vaccines. 29,831,488 people received a first injection (56.8% of the adult population), while 15.4 million French people are fully vaccinated.
