For the second day in a row, the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) report a decline in the number of hospitalizations linked to Covid in the canton. The situation remains tense, however, with accumulations still much higher than those recorded at the worst hours of the first wave, this spring.

Hospitalizations had reached an all-time high on Monday since the start of the pandemic, totaling 642 cases in the canton. This level regressed Tuesday to 606 and Wednesday to 568, a drop of 11.5% in two days. This downward movement comes about two weeks after the entry into force of a semi-containment in Geneva, which began on the evening of November 2. The current level remains very high, however, surpassing the peak of the first wave by 18.8%, with 478 simultaneous hospitalizations recorded at the beginning of April.
