“The evolution of the epidemic is preoccupying”. So warns Health Director General Jérôme Salomon this Thursday December 17, 2020 during his traditional weekly press brief on the Covid-19 epidemic situation in France. This Thursday December 17, 2020, France has reported 18,254 new contamination cases.
Included in these new Covid cases, French President Emmanuel Macron, who officially tested positive to Covid-19. Then, Pr. Salomon intended to remind that this “increase in cases urge to the greatest care” during the Holidays. Furthermore, Jérôme Salomon has said the government wants to avoid “resurgence of the second wave” of the Covid-19 epidemic at all cost.
So far, epidemiologists agree to say the risk of a third wave remains as important in France and anywhere else in France. The Holidays, the winter season and the late effects of the vaccination campaign are as many factors reinforcing the anxiety around this hypothesis.
