As the coronavirus epidemic is weakening in France, the authorities state the alert threshold is reached when the incidence rate in a department is above 50 cases for 500,000 inhabitants for 7 days. As coronavirus is declining in France, this Wednesday June 16, 2021, there are 8 departments in France with an incidence rate above 50 cases for 100,000 inhabitants.

Normal life has never been this close in a long time. As the coronavirus epidemic is weakening and the vaccination campaign is improving, France is moving to the first step of the four-step lockdown exit plan. It also includes major reopening: therefore, since June 9, 2021 restaurants reopen their indoor dinning rooms and gyms can welcome customers as well, and curfew has been moved to 11 p.m., until it is fully lifted on June 20, 2021.

Yet, although these easing measures are to occur on a nationwide basis, the government keeps curbing leverages for themselves in places where the epidemic circulation is still too active. In concrete words, it means that when a department or a metropolis has an incidence rate over 400 cases for 100,000 inhabitants, or experiences a sharp epidemic surge, the reopening calendar can be stopped while the situation is improving.

Since Tuesday May 4, 2021 there has not been a single department in France above this decisive threshold - according to consolidated data as of May 1, 2021.

Furthermore, this Wednesday June 16, 2021, the incidence rate is still above 50 cases for 100,000 inhabitants in 8 French departments for the past 7 days. Here are the places where the virus spreads the most:

45 — Loiret — Orléans  53.3
64 — Pyrénées-Atlantiques — Pau  56.2
75 — Paris — Paris 54.2
93 — Seine–Saint-Denis — Bobigny 62.1 
94 — Val-de-Marne — Créteil 50.2 
95 — Val-d'Oise — Cergy-Pontoise 60.7
973 — Guyane — Cayenne  293.4 
974 — La Réunion — Saint-Denis  130.6

As France is on curfew from 6 p.m., the incidence rate by department remains an indicator to monitor very closely to know more about the evolution of the epidemic. As a matter of fact, even though departments exceeding the threshold of 200 positive cases for 100,000 inhabitants were first to make new measures to fight against the spread of the epidemic, including implementing extended curfew, brought forward to 6 p.m., the entire country now has to comply with the measure until the situation improves. Here are the incidence rates in each department as of Saturday 24 July 2021. [Read more]
