Covid-19. A source of contamination detected in the Vire Normandie hospital

Foci of contamination are increasing in hospitals. In Vire Normandie (Calvados), a cluster was detected in the cardiology department of the hospital center. More than three cases have been reported. Difficult for management to give precise figures. “ We have been discovering new positive cases every day for the past two weeks, explains David Trouchaud, director of the GHT (Groupement hospitalier de territoire) Les Collines de Normandie. Samples were taken. The majority of patients contracted the English variant. “

To stop the spread of the virus, the service will be closed, patients will be transferred to the Covid-19 unit and admissions will be suspended pending total disinfection of the service. For David Trouchaud, “These contaminations did not take place in the hospital but within the family unit”. However, each admitted patient must perform a PCR test on arrival. In the Bocage virois, the epidemic situation is worrying. According to figures from the ARS, the incidence rate has been the highest in Calvados for several weeks with 256.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
