He French Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, announced this Friday the next opening of 4,000 new beds in hospitals to lower the pressure to which they are subjected by the coronavirus crisis.

During a visit to the hospital in Trévenans, in the east of the country, Véran told the press that a 50 million euro item will be dedicated to the entry into service of these 4,000 beds from december, “and if necessary before”.

He insisted that it is an urgency to respond to the growing demand and that they must be opened “when necessary and closed again if the sanitary pressure decreases.”

Emergency device

The announcement comes a day after a Paris region activated a emergency device in their health centers that was already in force during the first wave of the epidemic to organize themselves in the face of the increase in COVID-19 patients.

With that device you can de-program certain activities (such as operations or consultations that are not urgent), reorganize human resources or re-establish partnerships between public and private clinics.

In Paris and its region, more than 40% of ICU places are already occupied by coronavirus patients. The director of his Regional Health Agency, Aurélien Rousseau, fears that the 50% threshold may be exceeded in the next fifteen days.
