A few days prior to Christmas, on Thursday December 17, 2020, France’s Health Director General Jérôme Salomon has hosted the traditional Covid-19 press briefing. He says, “the evolution of the epidemic is preoccupying” in France, as 18,000 new cases have been reported today, including French President Emmanuel Macron.

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.

As the Holidays are just around the corner, the health issue is livelier than ever. Family reunions, winter season, late vaccine effects, as well as battle plans against the epidemic not as effective as expected: a body of consistent clues let us think that a third epidemic wave is likely to occur in early 2021 in France and the rest of Europe. Deciphering.
