“Respect the measures in order to stem the spread of coronavirus”

“Respect the measures in order to stem the spread of coronavirus” - The Director-General for Health Jérôme Salomon has this morning called for the general mobilization of the French to further comply with the barrier measures to slow the progression of the coronavirus epidemic on the territory.

He declared that “We all have a major role to play against the epidemic and we can all act as a barrier, by respecting the instructions of barrier measures that the French know but that they are not yet applying sufficiently”.

Consequence: the situation of the epidemic in France is today according to him “very worrying, it is deteriorating very quickly. It's a very fast epidemic and we can see that the number of cases now doubles every three days. "

He warned that “failure to respect the measures of one meter distance, massive reduction in contact - to be limited to a few people per day, confinement and regular hand washing, the situation in hospitals could worsen”.
