France is faced with a fourth epidemic wave that is swiftly spreading. Since this Sunday July 25, 2021, all regions in mainland France have exceeded the alert threshold.

It is like starting a new chapter of an endless saga. Now, France is faced with the fourth coronavirus epidemic wave, hitting earlier than expected. Initially expected this Fall, it eventually hits the country this summer. This time, cards have been re-dealt: this chapter’s antagonist is the Delta variant, a mutant more contagious than the previous strains, causing a sharp increase in the new case toll. While the French were expecting some rest this summer, the spread of this mutation is a game-changer.

Since this Sunday July 25, 2021, the entire mainland France has exceeded the alert threshold of 50 cases for 100,000 inhabitants. The Centre-Val de Loire region (50.4) is the last one to have exceeded the threshold over the past 7 days. But all regions are not equal to the sharp increase in cases: some are far ahead. Therefore, Corsica (402.1), Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (328.3) and Occitania (313.8) are the three hardest-hit regions, followed by Nouvelle-Aquitaine (196.7) and Île-de-France (161.6).
