February 15th – On February 14, 2020, France showed the first coronavirus patient to die. In the past year, more than 81,000 people have died of COVID-19 in France.
As of 13 February, the total number of deaths in hospitals or nursing homes in France was 81,647, accounting for 13% of the deaths during the same period.
According to the newspaper Parisien on the 14th, 94% of French coronavirus deaths are over the age of 65.
Of those who died in hospital, 85.1% were over 70 years old, so people must be very careful when meeting grandparents and should observe all precautions before they complete two doses of vaccination.
According to the report, citing data from the Coronology Research Department (CépiDC) of the French National Institute of Health and Medicine (Inserm), 65% of people who died from COVID-19 in France have communic diseases, the most common of which are heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and respiratory diseases.
By gender, 58% of the deaths from COVID-19 in French hospitals are men.
The analysis found that men are at greater risk of severe illness and death because they smoke more and have gender differences in their immune systems.
According to the Insee, 61% of France’s population over 75 years old is female.
In terms of region, Paris, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes and Grand Est are the three regions with the largest number of deaths in France, with 14,092, 8,556 and 7,652 respectively.
Compared with the local population, the highest mortality rate is in the Great East.
The western coast of France has been much less affected. The three areas with the lowest local mortality rates are Brittany, Novos Aquitaine and Corsica.
In terms of time period, the highest number of deaths in France was in April 2020, with 20,853 cases in a single month.
With the end of the first wave of the epidemic, the summer of 2020 will be calmer, with a total of 3,154 deaths from June to September.
But November, December and January 2020 are the deadliest three months of the year, with more than 10,000 deaths per month.
The data in this report does not include patients who died at home, and the coronology department of the French National Institute of Health and Medicine will conduct a more comprehensive analysis in the coming months.
