From tomorrow, your department will appear each day in red or in green on a map of the Directorate-general of health. In game : the déconfinement and its conditions from the 11th of may.
Some form of suspense is going to settle every evening for the French. What will be the color of every department, especially in the East and in the North, more affected by the epidemic of coronavirus ? Three indicators will be used to determine it.
The movement of the virus
The first of these indicators is the number of cases of Covid-19 in each department, taking into account the hospitalized patients and the new cases. The level of circulating virus will be, therefore, the basis of this differentiation between department.
The second indicator focuses on the hospital capacities and their tensions, in particular the seats, in the service of resuscitation. On the national level, 4600 people with Covid-19 were in the icu yesterday. If we add the patients suffering from other pathologies, the ability to ” base “, that is, 5000 beds, are still widely exceeded.
Finally, the government’s plan builds on an extensive policy of testing (700 000 per week), but also identification of case contacts and isolation. The doctors, the laboratories, the “brigades” health, in particular, will be mobilized. The effective implementation of this plan at district level will be the third indicator.
The colors and consequences
On 7 may, the games will be made. The map of France will be frozen and the measures of déconfinement different depending on whether your department will be in a green zone or red.
Thus, colleges should not reopen on may 18, in the red areas, and public spaces such as parks and gardens.
Wednesday morning on France Info, the minister of Health Olivier Veran has not excluded the possibility of the municipalities to close schools. In addition, the movement between two neighboring departments, but a different color, if only to go to work, will be ” strongly discouraged “.
