Moselle is facing an outbreak of Covid linked in particular to the variant that appeared in South Africa. The situation in this border department of Germany, which today experiences 283 infections per 100,000 inhabitants, could push Angela Merkel’s government to classify this territory as a high-risk area, according to a German media group.
“I did not quite understand why the Moselle had not done more, because the risk is high of seeing this South African variant arrive” throughout the country, is surprised Rémi Salomon, president of the APHP Establishment Medical Commission, citing a very fragile situation in the North and in Ile-de-France. For him, “we are today at the foot of the wall” and a national reconfinement “will happen”.
A not good trend at the national level
The former Minister of Health Philippe Douste-Blazy also proposes in an interview with the Journal du dimanche “strict confinement of four weeks to (…) regain control of the epidemic”.
At the national level, “the trend is not good”, admitted Gabriel Attal to the Grand Jury RTL – LCI – Le Figaro, using the words of Olivier Véran on Saturday in Nice.
