Attention, the coronavirus is circulating yet : the cry warning of the scientific Council - The Point

the Face of coronavirus, it is important to remain vigilant. A rebound of the epidemic of Covid-19 in France is possible in October/November or even this summer if the measures of barriers are abandoned, warns the chairman of the scientific Council in charge of guiding the government, Jean-François Delfraissy, in an interview with Agence France-Presse.

"there are a number of risks that there is a return of the virus in the autumn, ensures the teacher. It is extremely struck by what is happening in the Southern hemisphere at this time, which is in the southern winter : the epidemic is in the process of flaming, South America, South Africa, Australia, which has just confine Melbourne then that this country was up to now extremely protected. It was of very great concern. This is not a certainty and I hope that we will be wrong, but a lot of elements suggest that there may be a return of the virus on Europe for the end of October or the month of November. If this is the case, it will obviously be much more ready than we had been in the month of February."

"Mulhouse" can reproduce in France this summer

The situation in France is mixed, and could switch in the event of negligence. "On the one hand, explains the specialist, all the figures in France are rather good, we have the tools, we have the tests, we found out, so all this is extremely positive. And then on the other side, there is a near-complete loss of the measures of alienation, especially among the young population. Wearing a mask in transport, or the washing of hands, are things that have remained, but, by contrast, the acts of social distancing more general are being lost. And I say, "beware, the virus is still circulating". We see it all around us: in Spain, in Germany, in England, we had to reconfiner at the local level. If our fellow citizens continue to deviate from these measures, the risk of a recovery, a bit different, before the end of the summer is always possible."

Jean-François Delfraissy warns that it is necessary to avoid the places where there are crowds, where people touch each other, and the closed places, which are particularly at risk, and therefore calls for the port of the mask and the distance. "We know that there are super-transmitters that can contaminate 20, 30, 40, 50 people for reasons that we do not know. You put a super-transmitter in a confined location and a place of gathering and you have Mulhouse : it can reproduce itself in France this summer."
