SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from a common cold to more severe conditions. But the virus in question here is a new coronavirus which causes a lung disease which has been named COVID-19 (Corona virus disease 2019). It made its first appearance back in December 2019 in the Chinese city of Wuhan. According to Chinese authorities, people infected with the virus could have contracted it by consuming products of animal origin from a large city market, the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market. On March 11, the World Health Organization classified COVID-19 as a pandemic.

The situation in France

Although the number of confirmed cases is far less important than it is in China, France nevertheless features among the countries most affected by the outbreak. During a survey conducted in mid-March, 35 percent of French people stated being very worried about the spread of this new virus and 49 percent were rather worried. As of March 26, 1,333 people out of 25,600 infected had died from the virus and 3,907 had been listed as cured.

Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "Du fait de la difficulté de l’identification et de le confirmation biologique de l’ensemble des cas de COVID-19, les données présentées sous-estiment le nombre réel de cas. Dans le cadre du passage en phase 3 les recommandations étant maintenant de réaliser un prélèvement à visée diagnostique uniquement pour certaines catégories de patients, cette sous-estimation devient plus importante. Santé publique France prépare de nouveaux indicateurs pour assurer le suivi de l’épidémie à la phase 3."
