PARIS (Reuters) – The president of the French Scientific Council refused on Tuesday to comment on the merits of a possible re-containment to cope with the progression of the epidemic due to the coronavirus and its variant which appeared in England.
Asked during the 8:00 pm news of TF1 to say what he recommends to stop it, Jean-François Delfraissy replied: “the best roadblock is to continue the barrier measures with intensity.”
“Second, let’s try to avoid having too many viruses coming in from England or Ireland or Scotland with probably travel restrictions, and the third point is that there will definitely be – and these are political decisions – a number of more stringent measures to be taken, “he continued.
Refusing to answer the question of the reconfinement, he added: “We are not in an extreme emergency. Let us leave a few days to look at the consequences of December 31, what becomes of the first figures of this English mutant, let us continue intensively vaccination and (…) the speed race, we will be able to catch up “.
The Scientific Council submitted its recommendations to the government on Tuesday.
