France moves critical patients to other hospitals

France moved over 36 coronavirus patients who were in critical condition from the Grand Est region to the hospitals in the Nouvelle-Acquitaine region in the southwest of the country in order to ease the pressure on full hospitals.

Patients have been moved with speed trains and military planes and Francois Braun, head of the SAMU paramedics, said that it is urgent to "relieve congestion in the region’s intensive care units, because you have to stay one step ahead."
