France is currently facing an increase in Covid-19 cases. But not all sectors of the country are put in the same boat in facing this seventh wave.
200,000 positive cases in 24 hours. The new number of Covid-19 infections announced by Health Minister François Browne is alarming. For weeks now, doctors have been talking about the seventh wave.
As evidenced by the incidence rate. This indicator measures the number of cases Covid-19 per 100,000 people in a week. Nationwide, the case rate now stands at 1,153, up from 321 a month ago. However, this is lower than in March (about 1,400 positive cases per 100,000 people each week) or in January (around 3,700).
The incidence rate also depends on regions. The sectors most affected by the increase in pollution are, in order, Paris (1,571 cases per 100,000 population), Loire-Atlantique (1,527), Hauts-de-Seine (1,504), Haute-Garonne (1,500), Tarn-et-Garonne (1,414), Gironde (1,395), Alpes 1,379), Gers ( 1,334), Val-de-Marne (1,318) and Finistère (1,308).
On the contrary, there are fewer cases of pollution in Mayotte (51 cases per 100,000 population), Reunion (334), Saint-Martin (461), Guyana (491), Miquelon-Langlades and Saint-Pierre (550), Haut-l’Marne (639), Cantal (644), Meuse (691) and Vosges (700).
