On an unprecedented scale in France, the Covid-19 coronavirus health crisis raises many questions. To make up for this lack of information, the editorial staff of the 20 Hours of France 2 regularly reports user questions. This is the case of Dedée, who asks: “What is the number of deaths per day in normal times?” Doctor Damien Mascret, present on the set of the 20 Hours, indicates that he is “Just under 1,700 deaths a day. We already have an indicator with INSEE which calculated that with the week of March 7, at the national level, there was a surplus of 9% compared to the same week, last year. “
From Gaillac, in the Tarn, Vincent wonders “Where do the new cases of coronavirus come from when we have been confined for 15 days now?” Understandable surprise for Damien Mascret. “Everyone is paying attention, so in principle, this should stop, but in practice, if you are confined with other people, it may very well be that you are with someone who is infected himself, who don't infect you right away, but a few days later. ” This is how new cases can arise, says the doctor.
