Covid: fear of an “epidemic recovery”, Oise follows the national trend
With the war in Ukraine, the price of gasoline, the presidential election, the legislative elections and the results which leave one perplexed as to the management of the affairs of France, the Covid has (almost) passed into the sixth plan. And yet, for several days, the few specialists still questioned on the question in the media have been sounding the alarm. “There, it is very clearly an epidemic recovery“, assures this Wednesday, June 22, the infectiologist Anne-Claude Crémieux, at the microphone of France Info. 50,000 people tested positive on Tuesday 21 throughout France. The incidence rate as of June 18 is 481.63 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
More than 14,000 people are hospitalized, a figure up from last week. A recovery explained by a multiplication of variants and sub-variants, but also by a relaxation in the use of barrier gestures.
Oise follows the national trend
In the Oise, the situation is not as tense as in Ile-de-France or the Loire or the Loire Atlantique. In these two examples, the incidence there is less than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Still, this incidence rate in the department is, as of June 22, 443, rising steadily since the end of May. For the record, the “maximum” alert threshold defined at the height of the pandemic, in 2020, is… 250. The curve also follows the national trend, upwards, at the same pace and closely.
In addition, the virus is developing: the reproduction rate has been estimated at 1.33. In hospitals, as of June 21, 143 people are being treated, including two in intensive care. However, this figure has been falling slightly for seven days.
