Spread of the corona virus in French PolynesiaCurrently: 4.1 new infections per day per 100,000 inhabitants
By October 18th, 2021, 45439 infected persons and 632 deaths have been reported in the country. The first confirmed infections were reported in March 2020, which is the date of the official notification. An additional 10-14 days are calculated for noticing one's own infection, the doctor's appointment, the laboratory test and, above all, the period from the infection until the first symptoms appear.
The total of 45,439 infected people represent 16.18% of the country's total population. The number of new infections during the 41st calendar week (10/11/2021 to 10/17/2021) was 80 , representing 4.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per day.
The first graph shows the number of reported infections per calendar week. The second graph below the number of deaths.
Mortality rate of infected personsFrom the previously infected and deceased people, in French Polynesia results in a mortality rate of 1.4%. However, it should be borne in mind that death occurs an average of 19 days after the first symptoms appear. The time of the actual infection is therefore followed by several days until a person affected has a medical test carried out and the results are available.
Due to the current corona pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers weekly. A list of all infected and dead people by country can be found on our Corona virus topic page.

Medical suppliesWith about 477 physicians in French Polynesia, there are about 1.70 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.
Supply with drinking water
About 84 percent of the population has access to an immediately available, running drinking water supply. At least via springs and wells at a distance of no more than 30 minutes or supplied water, 100% of the population is supplied with largely clean drinking water. The population is thus better served than average. In a global comparison, only about 74% of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98%. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10%.
