As of March 28, 19 departments are subject to traffic restrictions. About twenty others under reinforced surveillance, including the Var, could also be the subject of re-containment.
In Bandol, in the Var, the weather is a dream, with 17 ° C on the thermometer and a cloudless sky. The sun could almost make you forget the threat that hangs over the department. Already subject to reinforced health measures, it could be affected by a possible re-containment. On the port, some anticipate. “It is indeed a way to enjoy a little before a possible confinement. The advantage of being able to enjoy the seaside and the beautiful weather a little, is to be able to be outdoors without danger, while respecting the sanitary rules “
, assures a resident.
In this tourist department, the incidence rate is 397 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. It greatly exceeds the alert threshold set at 250 positive Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Hospitals in the department are facing significant pressure, but for traders, a third confinement would be a disaster. The Var is on borrowed time, like 15 other French departments.
