Where is the epidemic of coronavirus in Pays-de-la-Loire? Some 31 new confirmed cases of contamination were identified Tuesday in the region, said the regional health agency (ARS). A similar development to the previous days. Fourteen new cases were recorded in Loire-Atlantique, the most affected department (in volume of cases) for two months. Sarthe remains, however, the department where the virus is most widely distributed in the population (141 confirmed cases per 100,000 inhabitants).

This figure of 31 additional cases is comparable to the progress observed in mid-March before the start of confinement, confirms the ARS. "The comparison is delicate," says the agency. We test much more today than we tested in March. On the other hand, there are probably more asymptomatic patients today than there were in March. The bottom line is that the virus is still circulating in our region. "
