  • According to the ARS count released at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, 1,082 people are officially infected in the region. It’s 182 more than the day before.
  • The number of hospitalized patients, who present with a severe form of the virus, is also increasing sharply: 463, the major part (133) residing in Hérault.
  • Forty-five people died from the virus in a health facility. It’s five more than the day before. A third of these deaths occurred in the Aude.

The number of confirmed cases of patients suffering from coronavirus in Occitania follows an exponential curve. The threshold of a thousand cases was largely exceeded this Wednesday. According to the ARS count, arrested Wednesday at 5 p.m., 1,082 people are officially infected in the region. It’s 182 more than the day before.

The establishment of the 141 Covid-19 consultation centers on the territory is not unrelated to this. They are only accessible after regulation by a doctor. These are not coronavirus screening centers. Patients are advised to call their treating physician or, failing that, center 15, for referral to the nearest center.

Second wave imminent

This figure confirms the imminence of the second wave expected by the various health establishments, and in particular the CHU of Toulouse and
Montpellier. The latter went to level 2 of his white plan to cope with the influx of patients without being overwhelmed.

The number of hospitalized patients, who present with a severe form of the virus, is also increasing sharply: 463, the major part (133) residing in Hérault. A total of 145 people are being placed in intensive care, a figure that is also increasing day by day.

A third of deaths in the Aude

Forty-five people died from the virus in a health facility. It’s five more than the day before. A third of the deaths occurred in the Aude (fifteen). L’Hérault, where twelve people, including those who died, is also paying a heavy price for this pandemic.

Conversely, 195 people, whose condition no longer justified hospitalization, have returned to their homes since the start of the epidemic. This measure benefited 34 people this Wednesday.
