France says no sign of virus rise after lockdown eased


Paris: The Minister of Health said on Wednesday that there is currently no sign that France ’s relaxation of the corona virus blockade has exacerbated the epidemic, and the latest data shows that the number of daily deaths is declining.

France eased the two-month ban period on May 11 to revive the epidemic-ridden economy.

Health Minister Oliver Veran warned that it is too early to assess the impact of easing policies. But he added that so far, there is no indication that the virus is regaining momentum.

He told reporters after the cabinet meeting: “We need at least 10 to 15 days to know whether this epidemic is affected.” He pointed out that the number of hospitals and intensive care units is continuing to decline.

He said: “Therefore, we have not seen the spread of the virus is recovering, but this does not mean that the virus has not spread.”

When many people in France prepared a long weekend to commemorate the ascension, people sent a more cautious message. President Emmanuel Macron wrote on Twitter: “This epidemic is not Behind us. We will not slow down our efforts. “

According to the latest data from the Ministry of Health, more than 110 deaths have been recorded in hospitals and nursing homes in the past 24 hours, raising the total number of deaths in France from the epidemic to 28,132.

The total number of people in the intensive care unit fell to 1,794, which is 100 fewer than the day before the crisis. When the crisis broke out, this number surged to more than 7,000.
