French COVID-19 cases, patient numbers ease as AstraZeneca inoculations
start




France on Saturday (Feb 6) reported a fall in new COVID-19 infections and in the number of patients being treated in hospital,
slightly easing pressure on the health system as the country rolled out shots with a third approved vaccine.

The country registered 20,586 new confirmed COVID-19 cases, down from 22,139 the previous day and marking the third
straight daily fall.

Hospitals were treating 27,369 people for the disease, down 245 from the previous day in a fourth consecutive daily fall.

The number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care eased to 3,225, down 20 from the previous day, data showed.

The government has resisted calls from health experts to impose a new national lockdown but the level of new cases per
day has remained relatively steady above 20,000.

The number of people in France who have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine has reached 1.86 million, with
247,260 having also received their second dose, the health ministry said.

France has received a batch of a COVID-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca, with 273,600 doses delivered, the ministry
said in an statement.

The initial AstraZeneca shots are being reserved for health personnel under 65, with first injections taking place
on Saturday.

A second batch of 304,800 doses will be delivered next week.
