While the coronavirus epidemic has slowed down in France, the track of deconfinement by territory seems to be being considered by the government. Which areas will experience a lifting of restrictions first and, conversely, which ones will have to be patient? We take stock of the circulation of regions and departments

In France, the peak of the third wave of the coronavirus epidemic was crossed in mid-April. Since the spread of covid 19 decreases. Encouraging news as metropolitan France is experiencing new confinement.

In an interview with Telegram, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran had come out in favor of deconfinement by territory. At the end of the defense council, government spokesman Gabriel Attal also indicated that this track could be considered by the government. This Monday, March 26, 2021, President Emmanuel Macron confirms that certain measures will be taken on a territorial basis such as the reopening of dining rooms.

Who can be deconfined first and who will have to take his pain patiently? Three territories are distinguished by a lower virus circulation : the Brittany, the New Aquitaine and the Corsica. Conversely, theIle-de-France, the Hauts de France and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur remain the most affected regions.

However, territorial decisions will probably be made at the departmental level.
