French Dr. Olivier Joannes-Boyau, who runs an intensive care unit at University Hospital in Bordeaux, After young French people took advantage of the lifting of lockdown and the summer months to go out and have fun, COVID-19 hospitalizations have risen in big cities like Paris, Bordeaux, and Marseille on the Mediterranean coast, where people live and work. They are now getting ready for the long walk.

There were a lot of COVID-19 cases last time University Hospital had to deal with them, so it put aside all other emergency procedures. This time, it is trying to keep all of its other services running as well. Even tho it isn’t going away, the virus looks like it is going to be around for a long time.

Hospital staff are better at their jobs now than they were when the coronavirus first hit France. Bordeaux University Hospital has better ventilators and steroids that can lessen the symptoms of COVID-19, which can cut down on the number of people who need to be intubated.

Early this year, the first coronavirus wave rose quickly, but was cut short by a strict lockdown across the whole country. As a whole, more than 31,000 people died in France, Johns Hopkins University says, out of more than 433,000 people who had the disease.

The number of new cases is going up quickly now, and it’s going to keep going up. A record was set over the weekend when more than 10,000 people got sick in one day. It is People are getting sick in clusters all over the country, and the number of people in intensive care has gone up 25% in the last week. In the spring, that number was ten times higher than it is now. But it’s still a bad sign. In the same way, it will be about how quickly the numbers move up.

The French government wants to avoid a second general lockdown that could hurt the country’s economy, so it’s giving local authorities the job of cutting the virus’s spread.

In response, Bordeaux and Marseille have made changes to their COVID-19 rules. These changes include extending the places where masks must be worn, limiting the size of public gatherings, and increasing enforcement. More checks will be done to make sure that COVID-19 rules are being followed.

There will be no gatherings of more than 10 people in public parks, along the river banks, or on the beaches in Bordeaux. People who go to cafes and restaurants will no longer be able to eat and drink while they are standing up.

So far this year, 81 schools and 2,100 classes have been forced to close because of COVID. He also said on Wednesday that 1,200 new infections among students had been reported, compared to last week.

These steps will determine how many French patients end up going to doctors like Dr. Joannes-Boyau. “The main thing will be to keep the wave low,” he says. There will be a lot of people with COVID-19 who come to us if this wave gets bigger. We can’t treat them.
