“Additional braking measures” of the coronavirus epidemic will be implemented in Dunkirk after consultation with elected officials, Matignon announced on Tuesday after a meeting in the morning between Jean Castex and the mayor of the town Patrice Vergriete.

The Prime Minister, who has noted the “sharp deterioration of health indicators in recent hours,” asks that “the local consultation work of elected officials and public authorities in the territory make it possible to define the response best suited to the situation”, Matignon told AFP.

Contamination on the rise

In the city, the incidence rate reached 901 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, more than in the region of Nice, reconfined Monday for two weekends. The strong presence of the English variant is suspected to be at the origin of this resumption of the epidemic. “Dunkirk today deserves all the attention of the State, as well as the agglomeration of Nice and the Maritime Alps,” Patrice Vergriete warned Monday evening. “We, elected officials of Dunkirk, are ready to do our part to deal with this third epidemic wave, as we have done since last March, in conjunction with the Prefecture of the North. “
