many countries have adopted measures of containment to protect their population from the Covid-19. These measures are withdrawn or draw gradually to an end in many countries. Here are a few dates of the end of containment in the affected countries.Country announced Date of the end of the containment Algeria 29 may Germany, may 4, Belgium 3-may Spain, may 9, United States, no date national, already lifted in several States. France 11 may Greece may 4, India may 3, Italy 3 may Luxembourg, may 11, Morocco 10 June Portugal 2 may Uk June 1, Switzerland, April 27, Tunisia may 3, Coronavirus in China
China's concern is, therefore, to be faced with a second wave, following the emergence of dozens of new cases in Beijing during the last days. In total, the country has a record of 84 362 cases, and of 4 638 deaths (no deaths over the last 24 hours) to be charged to the Covid-19. This new increase of the contamination is taken very seriously, and the capital of the country plunges little by little into the containment (a score of Beijing neighborhoods curly, many public places again closed...).
Should we worry about this increase in the number of infections in China ? Not for the moment according to, Bruno Lina, virologist at the university hospital of Lyon and member of the scientific Council, who spoke Tuesday on France Info about these 106 cases were reported in five days in Beijing : "This is a normal dynamic of the evolution of the epidemic in the absence of reaction. Now what we think is that given that a response has been made, the level of transmission is going to fall. But there is the time of the incubations, which is still ongoing. Therefore, we will still have cases. And then, there will be a decrease (...) The reaction has been perhaps more rapid than it was in the month of December". Same sound of bell on the side of Antoine Flahault, director of the global health Institute at the University of Geneva, that shows in the log all The Time : "It is not unexpected to observe clusters during this period, and they should even continue to multiply in the summer without necessarily a sign of the imminent return of a second wave. The vigilance epidemiological increased establishment as a result of the déconfinement as well as the increase of the screening tests performed contribute to generate a magnifying glass effect on any home that appears (...) These homes are not yet the sign of a possible rebound of the pandemic between China and Europe".Coronavirus in the USA
The United States remains the most affected country in the world by the Covid-19 with a total of 116 850 deaths (+740 in 24 hours) for more than 2.1 million cases. After having reached peaks of over 3 000 people died daily in April, the situation has certainly improved, but the country fails to stem the epidemic, which now does less damage in the East but moved to the West and the South. Anyway, the administration of Donald Trump has already announced that it would not consider a new closure of the economy in the event of a second wave on the country.
the president of The USA has planned to resume "normal life" and to launch his re-election campaign, with a great meeting planned for this Saturday at Tulsa (Oklahoma), in front of 20 000 people. A choice that makes the object of many criticisms and calls for cancellation, which does not seem to disrupt Trump. "We have a scene of 22 000 places, but I think that we will also use the conference room next door and it will hold 40,000 people," he said Monday. Bruce Dart, the director of health services of the city, he said : "A great meeting of 19 to 20 000 people represents a huge risk to Tulsa today. I think that it is an honour for Tulsa as a president-in-office wants to come visit our community, but not during a pandemic".Coronavirus in Brazil
Brazil had a new black day Wednesday, announcing 34 918 additional cases of Covid-19 during last 24 hours (a new record daily in the country) and 1 282 deaths, according to the report drawn up by the ministry of Health.
