Summer is fast approaching and the Covid-19 could well invite itself to barbecues. For the past few days, contaminations have been on the rise again and the virus seems to be gaining ground again on French territory.

In one week, the number of new infections has almost doubled. On Wednesday June 1, Public Health France reported 26,144 new cases recorded in 24 hours. Seven days later, on June 8, no less than 53,802 new cases were recorded.

If the last time such figures were reached dates back to May 10, 2022, these figures should be taken with a grain of salt. As our colleagues from Ouest-France explain, the long Pentecost weekend probably influenced this rapid increase in contamination due to the closure of the laboratories.

It is in this context that a new Council of Ministers took place on June 8. Following this, Olivia Grégoire, the government spokesperson, wanted to reassure the French “we are vigilant, but not worried”, she declared.

During her speech, the former MP also mentioned a new bill which will be presented to the Council of Ministers on June 22, 2022. Currently, France is still placed in a state of health emergency until July 31. .

This text aims to prepare for the future, by allowing the government to be able to act if ever a new epidemic wave appears.

If the precise content of the bill has not yet been revealed, the government spokesperson has nevertheless provided details that you can discover in our slideshow below.
