Pending a potential reconfinement, local or not, which could be decided this Wednesday during the health defense council, the epidemic trend continues to worsen in France.
This Tuesday evening, Emmanuel Macron talks with those in charge of the resuscitation services to make an inventory, after having received at the Elysee Palace, the members of the scientific council at 5 p.m.

In any case, the figures published this Tuesday evening by Public Health France are not good.
In intensive care, 435 entries of serious patients have been recorded in the last 24 hours.
