The decline is over. Are we heading towards an outbreak of Covid-19 cases? Public Health indicates: “The circulation of SARS-CoV-2 has started to rise again after several weeks of improvement in the epidemic situation”, with a rebound of 67.4% of recorded coronavirus cases… Which is all likewise 33,263 new cases in 24 hours.
This epidemic context is driven by two factors, notes Le Monde. First, the immune protection of the population has diminished during the summer. Then, the back-to-school and professional return creates more mixing among the populations.
This allows the virus to circulate more easily. The main vectors are the under 20s, indicates the site, especially children between 0 and 9 years old (111% during the week of September 1 to 5)
Problem: only 30% of people over 60 have so far received their booster dose. According to the media cited above, bivalent vaccines, that is to say having the ability to respond to the original strain and the Omicron variant, will soon be available in France.
And with the increase in cases, the possibility of seeing severe forms of the virus developing in patients increases. However, the severity of the disease sometimes leads to death.
Precisely, in 20 departments, it turns out that there have been more and more for a week. Is yours one of them? To find out, Planet has produced the slideshow below which lists them, based on data from Géodes.
