▫️ No speech by Emmanuel Macron to be expected in the coming days, franceinfo has learned from the executive, while the hypothesis of a third confinement is increasingly pressing. The president wants to do everything possible to avoid a new reconfinement, and is waiting to learn more about the effects of the generalised curfew at 6 pm, normally visible from Saturday 30 January.

▫️ Can the second dose of vaccine be delayed to vaccinate more people against severe forms of Covid-19? The answer is no, for the Minister of Health. Olivier VΓ©ran and the government’s “Mr. Vaccine”, Alain Fischer, set out their arguments during a press conference on Tuesday 26 January. The minister announced that the period between the two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine would be maintained at “three or four weeks”, i.e. “21 to 28 days”.

▫️ Madness

Image from a  supermarket in the north of France last weekend. No wonder the virus is spreading. I thought shops were supposed to introduce measures to limit the number of customers. Carrefour in this case should be very heavily fined.

With just over 880km to go, the first boat could arrive within the next 24 to 48 hours. It is still anybody’s guess which one will cross the line 1st.

πŸ”Ή Talking about umbrellas, there is a bit of a controversy going on right now regarding the works being done Place Carnot.

At first glance, the figures are clear, as announced on the website http://www.carcassonne.org, the City’s official website: the installation of the sunshades on the future Place Carnot will cost €450,000 excluding tax, out of the total budget for the square’s refurbishment, planned at €1.7 million. A paragraph above, still on the City’s website, details of the future shading are given: “32 sunshades of 5.5m x 5.5m will be installed on the square and 37 sunshades of 3m x 3m will be installed along the facades”. That is a total of 69 sunshades, the average price of which one would therefore be tempted to calculate (for fun).

And it comes to: 450,000 divided by 69 equals: 6521.74 € excluding tax. Somewhat expensive.

For those of you not in Carcassonne at the moment, this is how Place Carnot looked like this morning:
