VERIFICATION - Government spokesman Gabriel Attal cautiously referred to "the beginning of a slowdown in the progression of the epidemic". Is the culmination of this rebound in the crosshairs?



THE QUESTION.

Are we heading towards the end of the tunnel? In the aftermath of the new government announcements to fight against the fifth wave of Covid-19, which hits France head-on, the government spokesman, Gabriel Attal, spoke on France Inter "

the beginning of a slowdown in the progression of the epidemic

”. In fact, if the number of daily contaminations continues to increase, the dynamic is slowing down slightly. Cautiously, the spokesperson therefore hoped to see "

the beginning of the results of the efforts that the French have been making for several weeks now in the face of this fifth wave

", while warning that the epidemic peak was "

certainly not past

".

But this slowdown may well be a sign that the peak of the rebound is approaching.

This is also the opinion of the media Dr Martin Blachier, who estimates on his Twitter account that "

the peak will be over

" at Christmas, in less than three weeks.

On December 3, the Minister of Health also judged on franceinfo that it would be reached "at the

end of December [...] if we change our behavior

".

So when can we reasonably expect to reach the peak of the fifth wave?

Is it coming soon?

And can we precisely calculate this deadline?
