Martin Blachier: “the entry into the fall poses a small risk of an epidemic resumption of Covid-19”

Guest of the Punchline show on CNEWS Thursday evening, the epidemiologist and doctor Martin Blachier warned of a possible rebound in the Covid-19 epidemic this fall, in France.

“The entry into the fall poses a small risk of an epidemic resumption of Covid-19. When fall came last year, it gave the epidemic a huge boost. This scenario may occur again in a few weeks. Simulations from the Institut Pasteur show that the arrival of autumn can reactivate the spread of the virus, ”he said.

In addition, he welcomed the figures communicated by the French authorities for the month of September: “The rebound that we could expect with the start of the school year, we have enough perspective to see that it is not there”. He believes that the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, is following the same policy as the English government, namely lowering restrictive measures according to the latest data, which translates into a programmed reduction in the health pass with the decline of the epidemic at the start of the school year ”.

Since mid-August, contamination has receded and, more importantly, hospitalizations in critical care, which had increased but remained limited, in turn began to decline. The situation has “considerably improved”, summed up the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, on Thursday.
