After experiencing several waves since the start of the year, the Covid-19 epidemic had fallen to a particularly low level at the end of August, but contaminations have rebounded in recent weeks, in a context notably marked by the start of the school year.

As such, the incidence rate - the number of cases reported to a given population - has particularly increased among 10-19 year olds.

In one week, it more than doubled.

The consequences at the hospital, relatively limited during the previous wave at the start of the summer, are still difficult to assess: "

an increase in new admissions (...) was observed in certain regions while a stabilization was observed in national level

”, sums up Public Health France.

fourth dose

" - in the most fragile, such as the elderly.

The Haute Autorité de Santé has just approved several vaccines adapted to the Omicron variant.

However, she warns that it is better not to wait for them and to be vaccinated with the vaccines available if you are at risk and not up to date with the recommended booster dose.
