The number of people being treated for Covid-19 in French intensive care units surpassed 1,500 on Monday for the first time since May 27, authorities said, fearing local bans would be imposed across the country.

The new number of 1,539 is still nearly five times lower than an April 7th high of 7,148, but also four times higher than a July 31st low of 371.

And since more people with different diseases are usually hospitalized in the fall than in the spring, health experts fear that the hospital system will quickly become overwhelmed if nothing is done to contain the coronavirus.

Prior to this, Prime Minister Jean Castex said France was facing a “strong” second wave of Covid-19 infections and could not rule out local bans.

President Emmanuel Macron will speak in television interviews on Wednesday evening on the public health situation.

There were 8,505 new Covid-19 infections in France in the last 24 hours. The data showed a sharp drop from Saturday’s record of 26,896 and Sunday’s 16,101 record.

Part of the decline in cases could be due to fewer tests being done in France on Sundays. The 7-day moving average of new infections, in which the weekly data for reporting irregularities is averaged, was for the first time since the outbreak at 17,029 above the value of 17,000.

Meanwhile, the number of people who died of coronavirus rose by 95 on Monday to a total of 32,825.

The accumulated number of cases is now 743,479.
