The French Public Health Agency said on the 20th that indicators show that France has passed the peak of the second wave of COVID-19, but it still needs to be cautious about the development of the epidemic.
In the weekly press release of the French epidemic, the Public Health Agency said that the indicators of the French epidemic have shown a downward trend, especially in cities that had imposed curfews before the second lockdown, and the improvement in the epidemic is more obvious. Compared with the previous week
France saw a 40% decrease in the number of new confirmed cases, the number of admissions decreased by 13%, and the number of severe cases decreased by 9% in the week of November 9-15. The total number of inpatients and severe patients also decreased compared with the previous week. The number of new deaths has reached a stable state for the first time after weeks of rising.
The Department of Public Health also pointed out that although the epidemic indicators have declined, they remain high. The only effective means to curb the epidemic is to continue to comply with epidemic prevention measures.
In an interview with the French media on the 20th, Delfreich, chairman of the French Scientific Committee on COVID-19, expressed cautious optimism about the current epidemic, believing that the number of new confirmed cases every day is still very high, so it is necessary to continue to observe the development of the epidemic.
French government spokesman Attar reiterated in an interview with the media on the morning of the 20th that the government is still not sure whether to lift the embargo on December 1.
