In France, Covid-19 contaminations have jumped in recent days with nearly 50,000 cases on average over a week. The PACA region is particularly concerned. Pharmacies that still carry out tests are seeing more and more people flocking.

If you thought you could spend the summer without getting your nostrils tickled, itis probably missed. In a pharmacy in Antibes (Alpes-Maritimes)we reached a new peak on Monday June 20: 50 tests carried out, 40 of which were positive. A woman arrives with a cold and serious doubts.
