France recorded up to 180,777 cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours
Thus, France has so far recorded a total of 24.3 million cases of COVID-19 in the context that the country has reopened schools after 2 weeks of holidays. The average number of new cases in 7 days also increased to nearly 99,000 cases – the threshold was recorded from the end of December 2021 to mid-February 2022 – due to the fast-spreading variant of Omicron.
According to the French Ministry of Health, the number of people with COVID-19 hospitalized in this country on March 22 also increased by 36% to 20,742 cases in the past 24 hours and only decreased by 0.8% compared to a week earlier. On a weekly basis, the number of hospital admissions has been on a steady decline since February 10, but the percentage of patients improving has been declining over the past few weeks.
The number of new cases in France is on the rise again since the beginning of this month. However, Health Minister Olivier Veran thinks this trend will reverse by the end of this month.
Meanwhile, the number of new cases in Chile on March 22 fell to the lowest level in more than 2 months.
Specifically, Chile recorded 5,045 new cases and 11 deaths from COVID-19, bringing the total to 3,406,540 cases and 55,976 deaths.
The prevalence of COVID-19 is 10.87% nationwide, of which the Santiago metropolitan area is 7.51%. Last year, Chile recorded an average of 2,000 new cases per day. However, the highly contagious Omicron variant made the number of new cases in this country soar to a peak of over 38,000 cases/day in February.
Currently, the number of new cases recorded daily in this South American country is on a steady decline, with less than 15,000 cases / day.
