  • COVID-19: Focus must be on "bringing cases down" rather than "trying to live with the virus"

    Faced with the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, France will further tighten COVID-19 measures, but there will be no curfew for New Year's Eve and schools will reopen as planned in early January, the government said on Monday. Prime Minister Jean Castex said the COVID incidence rate - the number of infections per 100,000 people per week - is now well over 700 and at a record level since the start of the pandemic, forcing his cabinet to take new measures. Following the French Prime Minister's announcement of the latest measures to combat the spread of the highly-contagious Omicron variant, France 24 is joined by Martin McKee, Professor of European Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Professor McKee takes issue with the French government's limited restrictions, as he does with the UK's handling of their current health crisis. "We really are facing a crisis and it's not entirely clear that the seriousness of that crisis has been fully grasped." As the professor describes it, it is a race against time to curb the spread of the virus, warning that "we really don't have a lot of time given the rate with which this variant is increasing." Based on the data coming out of Austria and the Netherlands, Professor McKee asserts that lockdowns have proven "effective" and "both of those countries have turned their curves round." Looking ahead to 2022, Professor McKee would like the focus to be on "bringing cases down to as low a level as possible" rather than simply trying to "live with the virus." One of the ways we can do that, he explains, is by "making the environments much safer with air filtration, and ventilation, in particular."
