Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Numbers for April 10 in France:

Deaths in hospital:  8,598 (+554 in the last 24 hours)

Deaths in nursing homes: 4,599 since March 1st (+433 in the last 24 hours)

Total deaths since the outbreak: 13,197

7,004 patients in ICU nationwide, the second day in a row that this figure is decreasing, which might be a sign, if a faint one, that the pressure on the health care system is slowly starting to ease.

The number of cases and ICU patients is much lower than the national average in the regions on the Atlantic seaboard, from Brittany to the Basque country. This prompted again a transfer of 48 ICU patients from the Paris region to the southwest towns of Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Poitiers etc.. using the famous "high-speed hospitals", TGV high-speed trains repurposed into high capacity ambulances.

Meanwhile in the UK:

Deaths in hospital: 8,958 (+980 in the last 24 hours)
No figures for care homes.
