[Paris 22nd Reuters]–Alan Fischer, an immunologist who oversees the French vaccination strategy, said on the 22nd that the number of people infected with the new coronavirus on the previous day reached more than 95,000 for the first time in about two months. He said he was facing a wave of infection again following the expansion of the stock.

France 2 TV pointed out that there is no doubt that the infection has spread again in the country. Personally, he said it would be preferable to reactivate the obligation to wear masks in public transportation, “the question is how strong this wave is.”

In Europe, the spread of infection by two derivative types “BA.4” and “BA.5” of Omicron mutant strains has been seen in other countries, mainly in Portugal. According to the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC), the two are likely to be mainstream in the region.

In France, the number of newly infected people has increased since the end of May. The seven-day moving average has tripled from 17,705 on May 27 to 50,402 on June 21. However, the number of 366,179 people recorded at the beginning of the year is far below.
