While a third wave of coronavirus is looming on the horizon, national as well as local reconfinement has been ruled out by the government for the time being. It is finally an advanced curfew at 6 p.m. and located in the departments where the virus is most active that was decided. Discover the list of departments currently concerned, and the list of the 10 departments threatened by the widening of the curfew.
<p>The day after the end of the year celebrations, the <strong>France</strong> may well experience a third wave of the coronavirus epidemic in January 2021. A prospect that leaves the shadow of a containment in the country. It must be said that this would not be an unprecedented measure: around the world, several countries are already reconfiguring themselves for the third time since the start of the crisis.
But this possibility of a reconfinement at the local level has been ruled out by the executive for the moment, preferring an advanced curfew at 6 p.m.in the departments most affected by the pandemic. In total, 15 departments where incidence and hospitalization rates are particularly high are concerned.
“We are going to propose an extension of the curfew, which instead of starting at 8:00 p.m., will start at 6:00 p.m. in all the territories in which it is necessary.“declared Olivier Véran this Tuesday evening on France 2. Measures were put in place from the January 2 next.
Covid: Olivier Véran’s announcements after the Defense Council
While the Covid continues to progress in France and a Defense and National Security Council was held in all haste this Tuesday, December 29, 2020 in the morning, Olivier Véran made several announcements this Tuesday, December 29 in the evening, to the JT from France 2. We take stock.
According to the map of occupancy rate of hospitals in France, four regions are currently classified as red zones: Great East, Burgundy Franche-Comté, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. As of December 28, 2020, they show occupancy rates of 64.7%, 90.4%, 76.7% and 62.6% respectively.
It’s the incidence rate departments and cities which will determine whether or not the advanced curfew: a rate greater than 200 per 100,000 inhabitants
15 departments are ultimately concerned: These are therefore Hautes-Alpes (05), Alpes-Maritimes (06), Ardennes (08), Doubs (25), Jura (39), Marne (51), Haute-Marne ( 52), Meurthe-et-Moselle (54), Meuse (55), Moselle (57), Nièvre (58), Haute-Saône (70), Saône-et-Loire (71), Vosges (88) and the Territories of Belfort (90).
Also, the Prime Minister announced that 10 new departments would be likely to see the curfew measures widened from 8 p.m. to 6 p.m. The departments concerned are Nièvre (58), Cher (18), Allier (03), Côte d’Or (21), Aube (10), Haut-Rhin (68), Vaucluse (84), Alpes de Hautes- Provence (04), Bouches du Rhône (13), Somme (80).
Discover the proposals of scientific Council to limit the spread of the coronavirus:
- A rapid, strict and possibly short-lived “preventive reinforcement” of measures to limit contamination during the second week of end-of-year holidays from December 28.
- A deferred response adapted to the increase in contamination occurring at the end of the year (limitation of social or economic activities that may promote contamination).
- A later response aimed at limiting the effects of a resumption of the epidemic.
Others restrictions could therefore come if the epidemic were to resume after the holidays.
