As France is to start a new step from June 9 in the lockdown exit process, this Tuesday, on RTL radio station, Pr. Jean-François Delfraissy explained “we should have a summer in satisfactory conditions”. But the President of the Scientific Committee thinks a “fourth wave is likely in the Fall”, adding it “will be different from the others because of vaccination”.

As the health situation is getting better in France, the country must enter a new phase of the lockdown exit process starting this Wednesday June 9. Curfew from 11 p.m., reopening of restaurants with a reduced gauge or even health pass… This new step is major both for the French but the government.

France is to enter the third step of the lockdown exit starting from June 9, 2021. Curfew, working from home, restaurants, health pass, here is what changes from this day forth.

This Tuesday June 8, 2021, invited on RTL, professor Jean-François Delfraissy thinks “the situation is stable and is headed the right way in France and in EU countries thanks to vaccination”. He adds “we should have a summer in satisfactory conditions”.

But the head of the Scientific Committee remains cautious and wishes to warn against variants, especially the “Delta variant likely to logically take over the UK variant in France”.

We might attend a new surge in the epidemic in France in September-October, a fourth wave but that will be different from the others because of vaccination”, Delfraissy claimed this Tuesday on RTL.

Furthermore, he recalled the importance of facemask-wearing. “Facemask-wearing must be compulsory until June 30, then, it will be hard to keep it on this summer”, he said.
