    A first case of contamination with the variant of the Covid-19 virus identified in South Africa has been detected in France, the Ministry of Health announced on Thursday, a few days after the first confirmed case of the British variant.

    This variant, which like that of the United Kingdom could be more transmissible, was confirmed on Wednesday in a man returning from South Africa living in the Haut-#Rhin, near the Swiss border.
