Does the exodus of Ile-de-France residents run a health risk for inhabitants of other regions?

THE CHEKING PROCESS – Many inhabitants of Île-de-France, to escape confinement, go to other regions. Do they risk igniting the epidemic there?

THE QUESTION – The train seats in the direction of the province are taken by storm. As soon as the reconfinement was announced, a number of Ile-de-France residents decided to move to territory not affected by the restrictions. Interregional travel will be banned.
