Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

French numbers as of tonight, April 4:

  • 5532 deaths in hospitals, an increase of 441 in the past 24 hours.
  • Figures for nursing home deaths now come at 2028 deaths; the count may still not be complete (1416 were accounted for yesterday).
  • 6838 patients in intensive care nation wide, "a record", concentrated in the Northeast, North and Paris regions. Additional ICU beds have been set up in the past month: total capacity is about 10000; the government wants to increase up to 14000.
  • Hundreds ICU patients have been transferred from overloaded regions to the Southwest (like Bordeaux) or Brittany (Rennes, Brest), where the number of cases is much less than the rest of the country, and also to neighboring Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg. Depending on the distance, patients transfers were done by ambulance, military airplane, helicopter and even high-speed train ("anything that drives, anything that flies", according to an official).
