Using data from Public Health France, the Géodes site posted a map on October 22 showing the incidence rate of the Covid-19 epidemic by municipalities.
The number of people tested positive for Covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants over the last 7 days (incidence rate) is a good indicator for understanding the progression of the epidemic. It is followed by the government.

Several areas of France remain under increased vigilance because the number of positive cases for the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus per 100,000 inhabitants (incidence of the epidemic) remains high. The red, orange and green zone maps are useful for understanding theimpact of the epidemic on each region. On the map, those with a high incidence rate are shown in red.
