In addition to 246 hospitalized Covid-19 patients, the AP-HM has 67 beds reserved for Covid patients in intensive care. That is to say a third of the open beds of the hospital group which normally has 69 beds in shifts.

Worried about the start of the school year

Six other patients in intensive care were deemed eligible for a transfer which could take place in the next few days.
