Confinement – Day 22

Day 1 of the 4th week of confinement in France


Tuesday April 7th 2020

No real news from the official channels (Government, Region, Agglo, Town). In fact most of the webpages do not appear to be updated (lack of personnel?). I have actually written to the government to complain. They show on their home page, in this case  “Updated on Monday April 6th at 19h00” but you have to plough through at least 40 pages to find out what has been updated and I must admit that I did not find anything new this morning.

The hospitalisation rate in Occitanie appears to be still slowing down which looks positive. Too early to say if a peak had been reached. One can only hope.

The largest increase in cases, by far, from one day to the other was the USA with 30,516

►Information: Whats App

The messaging application will soon limit the sharing of previously uploaded content to a single recipient to slow the spread of fake news about the virus.

I am not too bothered personally since I gave up Whats App quite a while back but I hope it will reduce the incessant buzzing of my wife’s phone.

►Information: European Stock Exchanges open on the rise

The Paris Stock Exchange opened higher (+3.30%) on Tuesday, continuing the rally that began the day before with a significant rebound, clinging to the fragile signals hinting at a potential peak in the coronavirus epidemic in Europe. At 9am, the CAC 40 index was up 143.26 points to 4,489.40.

The London Stock Exchange also opened higher despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s placement in intensive care. The FTSE 100 index of major stocks rose 3.09% to 5,754.92 points this morning. The same was true in Frankfurt, where the Dax rose by 3.65%, following a rebound of more than 5%.
