It was announced by the French Minister of Health, Olivier Veran, if the epidemiological dynamics is confirmed.

Paris and its suburbs could go to “high alert” since Monday before the advance of the coronavirus virus. It was announced by the French Minister of Health, Olivier Veran, if the epidemiological dynamics is confirmed. The status of the capital will be decided on Sunday. This means that restaurants and bars would close from Monday, as in Marseille and Aix en Provence now.

“Are needed two or three days to confirm the trend, “he said, after recalling that there will be no lifting of the current restrictive measures in Marseille.

There is a “very worrying evolution” in different French cities. Paris is joined by Lille, Lyon, Grenonle, Toulouse and Saint Etienne, with “a degradation in the incidence rate but also pressure on intensive care services,” according to the minister, who spoke from the Bichat Hospital. Intensive therapy services in these places exceed 30 percent occupancy.

“If the measures do not produce the desired effect on the epidemic situation, we may be forced to place these territories on epidemic high alert “ assured the French minister.

Epidemiologist Arnaud Fontanet, from the Pasteur Institute, spoke to the minister. He estimated that “it is still possible to have an impact on the trajectory of the epidemic. If we react early, we can have a considerable impact on the trajectory of the epidemic and on the occupation of intensive care beds ”, he specified.

The health minister is not concerned about the sources of infection in schools. “You know: boys don’t have serious ways. A boy with coronavirus is not a boy in danger. Serious cases are rare, exceptional and affect a certain class of children. Children are less contagious than adults, ”he said.

“Don’t invite 20 friends to have the party. I am convinced that young people know that there is a risk for the people they love. The youth must show exemplary solidarity ”, asked the minister.

The health minister acknowledged that “we are in a worsening phase of the epidemic after several weeks of circulation of the virus”, in his weekly explanation.

Veron detected a “beginning of improvement in Bordeaux, Nice and Marseille”, which have their restaurants and bars closed due to the health emergency. “He is shy but he counts,” said the minister.

“The virus evolves very quickly in big cities. All categories of the population, notably the most vulnerable and the elderly. The consequences in these cases are already visible. Hospitals are full and hospital staff fatigued”, He explained.

A sanitary protocol is going to be imposed in restaurants. Each client will give their address and email before entering in order to follow the chain of infections.

According to their findings, the number of Covid patients doubles every 15 days. “The virus always circulates,” he warned.
