How is the coronavirus epidemic situation evolving in Île-de-France? Because of the density of the population, the Paris area is one of the areas the hardest-hit by the health crisis. At the scale of departments, it displayed very high incidence rates during the third wave including a dramatic boom in cases in Seine-Saint-Denis (93), Val d’Oise (95), and even in Val-de-Marne (94).
From now on, as France is about to move to phase two of the lockdown exit scheme, this indicator seems more even in the Parisian basin. According to consolidated data released on June 5, 2021 and shared this Thursday June 10, 2021, there is no longer Île-de-France department with an incidence rate over 100 cases for 100,000 inhabitants. For the record, the government set at 400 the threshold that could stop the lockdown exit process in some areas. As of June 16, 2021, four departments move under the threshold of 50 cases for 100,000 inhabitants: Yvelines, Essonne, Hauts-de-Seine, and Seine-et-Marne.
Here are detailed data in Île-de-France:

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 Wednesday 16 June 2021, based on data shared by CovidTracker and Data.gouv.

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 Wednesday 16 June 2021.
