In France, the second epidemic wave keeps on spreading in many areas. Curfew has been brought forward to 6 p.m. since January 16, 2021 instead of 8 p.m. Health authorities have set the incidence rate per department as a determining criterion to know if measures should be made harder or easier. To make Île-de-France inhabitants’ life easier, here is the incidence rate map by departments in Paris and Île-de-France as of Sunday 15 May 2022, based on data shared by CovidTracker and Data.gouv.

How does the incidence rate evolve in each department in Île-de-France? The most densely populated region in France, aka Île-de-France, has been very seriously hit by the first and then the second Covid-19 epidemic wave.

As the second phase of lockdown lift is on, the virus keeps on spreading and remains as threatening despite efforts and restrictions made consequently.

Therefore, the government and health authorities rely on very specific criteria to know how virulent the virus is in each department in France: the incidence rate in people including all age ranges, and the incidence rate in elderly people, the most vulnerable faced with Covid-19.

If the rate exceeds the threshold set at 200 cases for 100,000 inhabitants by the government, curfew has been then extended in the area. This Sunday 15 May 2022, the incidence rate is around 354.20 in France. In Île-de-France, the same rate goes beyond the threshold set by the government and reaches 249.70 . All Île-de-France departments have exceeded the threshold set by the government and the health authorities

Furthermore, Santé publique France says that this incidence rate represents the number of people – in one week – who tested positive (RT-PCR and antigenic tests included) for the first since in over 60 days and compared to the density of the population. It is expressed for 100,000 inhabitants and enables to compare geographic areas.

The incidence rate can change depending on testing activities and time needed to get results. Each department is listed in three colors:

  • In red, departments displaying a high incidence rate
  • In orange, departments displaying an average incidence rate
  • In green, departments displaying a low incidence rate
