Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Ah there you go, only 39 in ICU out of 305 hospitalisations.

Bearing in mind that triage is in full swing in France : in the East, and in the Paris region, you certainly won't get a respirator if you're not deemed likely to survive. Also, hospitals are not admitting COVID patients from old people's homes, they are literally leaving them to die in their institutions.

These are the decisions that they make every day in hospitals; that is what doctors do, and there's no point in criticising. The French health system is apparently expecting the peak to arrive in the middle of next week. I certainly hope it's that soon.
