Chile is concerned about the number of cases of coronavirus in copper mines. Red metal is the main wealth of the country, and represents 50% of its exports. Activities never stopped in the mines, and the health security measures put in place in the sector were clearly not sufficient. Hospitals in the country's main mining region, Antofagasta, are nearing saturation.

At this stage of the investigations, at least 40 people have been infected with Sars-Cov-2 within a few days.

In three hours, 21 of the 93 people present were contaminated

Everything started from a wedding organized on July 14 on board the Swan, a ship offering trips on Lake Annecy, in Haute-Savoie. When the 88 guests arrive, accompanied by two employees of a local caterer, the three crew members ask them to wear masks. But the latter are quickly abandoned in the mildness of this late afternoon. "It's uncontrollable, a marriage, sighs Philippe Gausset, the president of the Compagnie des Bateaux du Lac d'Annecy, which has now banned this type of event. As soon as people have had a drink, they kiss each other, they are getting closer… "In three hours of cruising, 21 of the 93 people present were infected. But that Tuesday, they don't know it yet.

Alerted, the primary health insurance fund retraces its recent relations before handing over to the regional health agency (ARS) of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, as required by the procedure for complex cases. But the gear has started and the tracking system is slower than the spread of the virus. "It's a long job, insists on the side of the ARS. By the time we have the names of the guests, people are leaving the region, going on vacation…"

Misfortune and incomplete list of names

D 'as the list of participants provided to the ARS was initially incomplete. The shipping company was not alerted to the situation until July 19, three days after the first reported case and five days after the wedding.

Another setback slowed down the identification of cases. It was Philippe Gausset who, on the same July 19, informed the health agency of the presence on board of the two employees of the caterer, however hired by the bride and groom who had obviously not mentioned it. The ARS warns a company. Failed, it is not the right one. We have to start over. It's too late anyway: contaminated at the wedding, one of the servers participated, on July 17, in an engagement meal in Oyonnax (Ain), about a hundred kilometers from Annecy. There, he had contact with 37 people, at least two of whom tested positive.

More than 200 contact cases have been identified in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

On July 18, in Talloires (Haute-Savoie), another contaminated guest during the wedding celebrated a birthday in a restaurant in the city. During that evening, he rubbed shoulders with 36 people. Tested, they are still waiting for the results.

New COVID-19 outbreaks among young adults spark concern about bars, restaurants

On the same day, a woman on board the Swan with symptoms was diagnosed positive, as was her daughter. The previous days, the little one attended the leisure center of Saint-Eustache (Haute-Savoie). She also slept at a friend's house and infected her. The parents then warn the managing body of the day center, which takes care, on Monday, July 20, of alerting the ARS, not yet aware. The health agency quickly made the link with the marriage. In one week, the girl approached 28 people including 25 children. Three of his contacts were infected: the initial cluster created a new epidemic focus.

Another could be born the following weekend. In defiance of the fortnight, parents go to a baptism with their infected child. During this family celebration, the latter was in contact with nearly 30 people. The results of the tests are also pending.

On the side of the ARS of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, however, we are assured that the situation is under control, at least in the region. "This cluster does not present any complexity but ramifications which require spending many hours recalling people, one explains. The context of the summer means that there is mixing. People move a lot." And with them, the virus.
