DECRYPTION – The situation remains stable, but fragile. It remains very difficult to predict the epidemic situation for the next few days.
It is a France cut in two which is preparing to celebrate New Year’s Eve and the transition to 2021 in a small committee. “The East is more violently affected, it is one of the strong markers of this second wave, analysis Mircea Sofonea, lecturer in epidemiology and evolution of infectious diseases at the University of Montpellier.
