Not for the moment according to, Bruno Lina, virologist at the university hospital of Lyon and member of the scientific Council, who spoke Tuesday on France Info about these 106 cases were reported in five days in Beijing : “This is a normal dynamic of the evolution of the epidemic in the absence of reaction. Now what we think is that given that a response has been made, the transmission level will drop. But there is the time of the incubations, which is still ongoing. Therefore, we will still have cases. And then, there will be a decrease (…) The reaction has been perhaps more rapid than it was in the month of December”.

Coronavirus in the USA

the Country most affected by the Covid-19 with 120 001 dead according to the last balance-sheet, for over 2 million cases, the United States hope to have crossed the peak of the epidemic. On Wednesday, they counted less 1000 deaths daily during seven consecutive days, a sign seen as positive even if 20,000 Americans continue to be tested to be positive each day. The country fails to stem the epidemic, which now does less damage in the East, but that has shifted to the West and the South. Anyway, the administration of Donald Trump has already announced that it would not consider a new closure of the economy in the event of a second wave on the country.

the president of The USA has planned to resume “normal life” and to launch his re-election campaign, with a great meeting planned for this Saturday at Tulsa (Oklahoma), in front of 20 000 people. A choice that makes the object of many criticisms and calls for cancellation, which does not seem to disrupt Trump. “We have a scene of 22 000 places, but I think that we will also use the conference room next door and it will hold 40,000 people,” he said Monday. Bruce Dart, the director of health services of the city, he said : “A great meeting of 19 to 20 000 people represents a huge risk to Tulsa today. I think that it is an honour for Tulsa as a president-in-office wants to come visit our community, but not during a pandemic”.
