French hospital faces second wave of COVID patients

PARIS (Reuters) – The number of COVID-19 patients in French intensive care units could reach in two weeks the same level as during the peak of the first wave in April without new measures, the government spokesman said on Tuesday.

Gabriel Attal said these estimates were based on models by the Pasteur Institute. “We are seeing an exponential increase in the number of infections,” he told reporters after cabinet members met with party leaders and lawmakers.
