What strategy will Paris adopt to deal with the resurgence of covid-19 cases? Confinement on weekends, as has been put in place in the Alpes-Maritimes and Dunkirk, is not accepted by the mayor Anne Hidalgo , who says she is "opposed" to such a measure that she judges "Inhuman". The capital is one of the territories placed under "enhanced surveillance" by the government and which must transmit a new strategy to block the virus under penalty of the implementation of "reinforced measures" from the weekend of March 6 if the health situation is deteriorating further.

Asked Tuesday by Laurence Ferrari on Anne Hidalgo's rejection to apply confinement at the weekend, the government spokesman joked about the indecision of the Paris town hall about the procedure to be followed in the face of the virus. Thursday, February 25, the first deputy Emmanuel Grégoire had indeed declared that a three-week confinement in the capital was a possible option. “I will not take the risk of commenting on a position of the mayor of Paris since we see that they are evolving. There were three positions in three days, ”Gabriel Attal told CNews. “First we were told we must completely and strictly confine the city of Paris, then Friday it was finally only a hypothesis and today, it was never question”.

Anne Hidalgo's proposals

Gabriel Attal went on to recognize that the 6 p.m. curfew and partial and local containment measures were "difficult" for the French. "We know very well that this is not trivial, we know very well that these are additional constraints, but there is nothing more inhuman than the virus", he added, repeating the words of the mayor of Paris. "These are necessary decisions, we have no other choice", he insisted, considering that "it was necessary to know how to act in responsibility", and to assume to take "unpopular decisions".

During a press conference organized on Monday, Anne Hidalgo defended the possibility of Parisians being able to go outside. "The more we restrict public spaces and ventilation times for families, the less we fight against Covid," she said, suggesting as avenues against the virus that teachers teach with the windows open or outdoors “Whenever possible”, to resort to saliva tests more extensively in schools and to multiply the vaccination rate by 4.
