In Matignon, the coronavirus is making a comeback on the front pages of diaries.

Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne brings together the prefects and directors of ARS by videoconference on Tuesday to discuss the epidemic situation of Covid-19, we learned Monday evening from those around her.

The meeting, which will begin at 3 p.m., will make it possible to issue a series of recommendations for the coming weeks, specifies the entourage of the Prime Minister.

After more than two years punctuated by the pandemic, France plunged again at the beginning of summer, like other European countries, into a new wave, carried by new sub-variants of the Omicron family, BA.4 and especially BA.5.

Contaminations have been increasing for three weeks in all metropolitan areas and all age groups and now reach around 55,000 every day.

In this context, a bill temporarily maintaining a monitoring and health security system in the fight against the virus, must be presented to Parliament in July.

The Minister of Health Brigitte Bourguignon also asked Monday on RTL "the French to put the mask back on transport", out of good citizenship.

She also reiterated her call for a new vaccination booster with the fourth dose for certain categories of the population, such as the over 60s and immunocompromised people.
