Visiting Alpes-Maritimes - where the incidence rate is skyrocketting - Health Minister Olivier Véran said this Saturday February 20, 2021 the "trend over the past three days is not good" in France.

The trend over the past three days is not good, it is not longer good”. So warns Health Minister Olivier Véran this Saturday February 20, 2021 when visiting Nice, where the government is considering making local-based lockdown measures.

The day before, Emmanuel Macron said he allows himself 8 to 10 days before making new measures that - to date - could be more restrictive or, on the contrary, eased off, the Health Minister urges the French not to let their guard down during the Winter break and make sure they are still complying with the health guidelines. Véran also says the data have not been encouraging for a few days. And for good reason. As of Friday, "over 3,000 extra cases in comparison with Friday from the week before".

The threat of more contagious new mutations has changed everything, and as a reaction, on Thursday evening, the government has decided to increase the self-isolation period from 7 to 10 days, as a precaution. By taking into account the coronavirus evolution pace, it is necessary to observe a trend for about two weeks before making informed decisions. As a matter of fact, data change every day, they can increase or even decrease and the evolution has to be monitored daily to see a trend.
