For the government, it is imperative to wait before announcing deconfinement measures. However, the horizon is clearing: the circulation of the coronavirus is clearly decreasing. Thursday, November 19, the national incidence rate per 100,000 inhabitants fell to 248, or half less than at the end of October. “Health pressure remains extremely high in our country and our hospitals are still under a very heavy burden in terms of patients”, nuance the Minister of Health Olivier Véran.
Thursday evening, November 19, the total number of people hospitalized was 32,345, including 4,653 patients in intensive care. In nursing homes, vigilance is required: staff will now be tested every week. If the second wave seems to be slowing down, the damage to mental health is worrying: re-containment, economic, social crisis… The depression threatens the country.
