The Covid-19 epidemic is progressing everywhere in France, where the incidence rate reached, Thursday, March 25, 325 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The situation is even tense in spared territories, such as New Aquitaine.
The Nouvelle-Aquitaine Regional Health Agency (ARS) shared, Thursday, March 25, its concern about the increase in cases in one week. “It’s very quickly that the indicators are turning red right now, explains David Basier, journalist France Televisions, in duplex from Bordeaux (Gironde). The incidence rate in Nouvelle-Aquitaine was 107 days ago, it has climbed to 164.“
If the figures are lower than those observed in the most affected regions, “what worries the ARS is the shape of this curve, because this curve indicates a rise at high speed towards a peak of contamination“, adds the journalist. It is to be attributed to the recent arrival in the region”relatively spared by the Covid“from the English variant, which”now affects 80% of positive cases“, specifies David Basier. If the Bordeaux University Hospital received two weeks ago patients transferred from Ile-de-France, “this evening he has just announced that he is postponing certain operations, to create beds in intensive care“, indicates the journalist.
