He accompanied us for months. With the resumption of the Covid-19 epidemic, will the mask return to public transport? Professor Alain Fischer, president of the Advisory Council for the vaccine strategy against the pandemic, is in favor of it, in particular for fragile people. “It’s a collective protection measure. By making the small effort to wear the mask, we help protect vulnerable people”he said, Wednesday, June 22, on the set of Télématin, on France 2.

After a period of calm, the Covid-19 epidemic is on the rise again. Nearly 50,000 new cases per day were thus recorded over one week, on June 18, i.e. double the previous weeks. The curve of hospitalizations remains stable for the moment. “There is always a lag of 15 to 21 days, it is the lag between contamination and severe forms in the hospital. Unfortunately, we are again seeing patients arriving, who are mainly elderly people, comorbid, who haven’t taken their fourth dose”Explain Dr Benjamin Davido, infectious disease specialist.
