Another death every ten minutes in France?

Spread the love

“One person still dies from Covid every ten minutes in France. This is the declaration of François Braun, an emergency physician who became Minister of Health. He has answered to the concerns of readers of Parisian, also members of the nursing staff. With this statement, which did not fail to challenge, he answered the question: “Today, is it still necessary to isolate yourself when you are positive for Covid? »

He also added that “sooner or later a new wave could come”. According to him it is always important to “isolate oneself, this rule is not questioned. And you have to get vaccinated. He admitted to being disappointed with the last vaccination campaign: “With only 10% vaccinated, we are very far from the target to be reached. Is the figure put forward by the Minister of Health correct? 20 minutes make the point.


One person dying every ten minutes would amount to 144 Covid-19 deaths every day. And his opponents did not fail to point this out. Florian Philippot commented “We counted 56 deaths on average last week. And 60 on average for months and months! Braun lies to panic! »

According Covid Tracker website, which uses data from Public Health France, there would be 54 daily hospital deaths due to Covid-19 on average over the last 7 days. On November 9, the date on which he met the readers of Le Parisien, this figure rose to 66, still according to the same data.

Of course, these are only hospital deaths. To this should be added the residents of EHPADs, for example. During the last study carried out the week of October 31, Public Health France had recorded 18 deaths among residents of social and media establishments. We are therefore very far from the 144 put forward by the Minister of Health.

If we always look at the same data, we have to go back to March, and the end of the winter wave, to find a level of deaths corresponding to the figures currently mentioned by François Braun. Moreover, it is impossible to know if these people really died of Covid-19. The only certainty is that these patients had a positive test when they died. However, they may have died of other causes.
