On Monday, the number of people infected with COVID-19 in French hospitals increased from 767 to 22,749. Let us tell you that due to the Omicron variant, the situation has worsened in countries around the world. There is no space left in the hospitals to admit patients and due to this the situation is getting worse than before.
The US has reported a record 1.3 million new Covid-19 cases. Earlier on January 3, more than 10 lakh cases were registered. Meanwhile, the number of patients in hospitals related to COVID has also broken its back. In the US, more than 1,35,500 people are hospitalized with a covid infection.

The number of hospitalized Covid-19 patients in France increased from 767 to 22,749 on Monday. Health Minister Olivier Veran said the Omicron variant, although less dangerous, is causing severe infections and rapidly increasing the number of patients in hospitals.
Hospitals in the UK are facing a shortage of staff. The UK government on Monday ordered the country’s largest private health companies to provide critical treatment quickly if hospitals are overcrowded with Covid-19 patients.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid has ordered England’s National Health Service (NHS) to enter into a three-month deal with private health companies to allow patients to undergo treatments such as cancer surgery.
In Italy, the government has taken a tough stand against those who have not vaccinated against COVID-19. The government on Monday issued several new orders regarding vaccination. In an order, the government said that anyone traveling in restaurants, hotels, fairs, local or long distance trains and buses would be required to show vaccination proof.
