Day 3 of the 4th week of confinement in France
Thursday April 9th 2020
Some say that the best measure of the situation is the number of cases in intensive care. This is the curve for France up until yesterday where there are 7,148 (+17 on the previous day) patients in reanimation. It looks to me that despite the large numbers, there is a definite flattening of the curve. One can only hope a peak has been reached and that it should encourage people to stay at home even longer.
Now planned for Monday April 13th
Ordered yesterday afternoon, delivered this morning. Approx 38 litres of wine for day to day nourishment by the pool.
The Academy of Medicine has come out in favour of the compulsory wearing of masks to combat the Covid-19 coronavirus, particularly after the containment period. The government has not yet given any direction on this issue. “We will make a decision on whether to extend masks to the entire population as soon as we can build it on scientific consensus.” The World Health Organization (WHO) “does not recommend the use of masks in the general population”.

I have added a column with the number increase from 1 day to the other which probably is somewhat more indicative of the problem areas.
