COVID-19 will force hospitals to delay other procedures -Paris hospital exec

- Hospitals and intensive care units hardest hit by COVID-19 will need to start delaying some other procedures, Bruno Riou, head of the Paris AP-HP hospitals' crisis team, said on Friday.

Riou was speaking at a news conference after two leading French health officials called for new restrictions to rein in the pandemic, opposing government plans not to impose a new lockdown for now. nL1N2KB0JA
