TELEVISION – You will have something to occupy your evenings from February. TF1 and M6 announced this Tuesday, January 25 the broadcast dates of their flagship programs: Top Chef, Beijing Express, Love is in the meadow and The Voice. And all start next month.

Starting with Beijing Express, which will be broadcast on M6 from February 10, every Thursday at the start of the evening, followed by The Voice, on Saturday evening on TF1, from February 12. For Valentine’s Day, February 14, M6 will start broadcasting the portraits of farmers from the 2022 edition of Love is in the meadow, from 9:10 p.m. Finally, the first episode of the thirteenth season of Top Chef will be on the air from Wednesday February 16.

New rules come into play

The first show to return to the small screen is therefore the Beijing Express adventure. The first episode “In the Land of the Golden Eagle” will be broadcast on Thursday February 10 at 9:10 p.m. on M6. And this fifteenth season of the game promises to be spectacular. The eight pairs selected from the 90,000 applications received by the production will begin their journey in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, then cross Uzbekistan and Jordan, before playing in the grand final in Dubai.

This year, in addition to the traditional red and black flags, a new rule is entering the game: the “Express Pass”. During the first stage, one of the pairs will have the chance to recover this sesame which will allow him to escape the final duel.

Because, at each end of the stage, the team that arrived last chooses among the other pairs the one it wishes to face in a final sprint. This race must make it possible to determine which team remains in the game. The duo which has the “Express Pass” can decide to play it before the final choice of the team which arrived last in the stage. Unless he came last, or first – in which case both adventurers are immune. The “Express Pass” can only be played once, and will not be passed on to another team during the game.

TF1 also decided to change some rules for the new season of The Voice,which will be broadcast from February 12 at 9:10 p.m. So finished the test of knockouts, which normally came after the battles. To replace them, a new event is entering the singing competition: the “super cross battles”.

A name that calls out, but a fairly simple principle since it is ultimately a second round of cross battles. The principle is essentially the same as for the battles, except that this time the singers are not part of the same team. Each coach chooses who he wants to send to vocally confront a talent from an opposing team, and it is the public who decides. The winners of the cross battles will compete in the super cross battles, the rules of which are the same.

New coaches to support candidates

But the news does not stop there for TF1. In addition to the four usual coaches (Florent Pagny, Amel Bent, Vianney and Marc Lavoine), a fifth artist is entering the jury: Nolwenn Leroy. The singer will not, however, constitute a new team. She will be able to select four talents from those who did not convince the jury during their blind auditions. Among these four candidates, only two will be able to return to the game at the end of the battles test, if one of the four coaches chooses him or her in his team.

M6 also decided to shake up the composition of its jury for the new season of Top Chef, which will be broadcast from Wednesday, February 16 at 9:10 p.m. After the surprise departure of Michel Sarran, the jury for this 13th season will be made up of Héléne Darroze, Philippe Etchebest, Paul Pairet and the “little” new Glenn Viel.

The fifteen cooks will compete in “destabilizing, surprising and completely offbeat events”, promises host Stéphane Rotenberg. But “it’s not because we look for the avant-garde of the kitchen, that it defines the whole season”, completed Paul Pairet during the press conference to present this new season. “Not everything will be disconnected from everyday cooking”. A clever mix between “the craziest challenges” and “benchmark events” to satisfy all taste buds.

And M6 will not be outdone for the second month of the year. From February 14, and the following Monday, the 21st, the channel will broadcast the portraits of the 9 men and 4 women, aged 24 to 72, who will be looking for love in the 17th season of Love is in the meadow.

Here too, some surprises await viewers: a father and his daughter will try to find their soul mate thanks to the show, reports TéléLoisirs. Fans of the show will also find a familiar face since Thierry, who had participated in season 10 of the show in 2015, but whose love affair with Annick had not worked, will return to the program. .

Cyberactivists wanted to weaken the Russian forces by attacking the train networks, through which soldiers and equipment arrive.

It would be one of the rare large-scale cyberattacks with a political or even military claim. In Belarus, hackers paralyzed, Monday, January 24, the servers of Belarusian Railroad, the rail network. Their goal: to slow down and disrupt the evolution of the Russian armed forces of Vladimir Putin on the territory, reports Bloomberg. The latter are suspected of preparing an invasion of Ukraine via Belarus, an ally of Russia.

The group of cyber activists is known as Cyber ​​Partisan. Made up of around 30 people, it was formed following the disputed re-election of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko in September 2020. Cyber ​​Partisan claimed responsibility for the attack on several social networks, including Twitter and Telegram messaging.

“Under the command of terrorist Lukashenko, Belarusian Railroad allows Russian troops to enter and invade our territory. We have encrypted some of their servers, databases and hardware to disrupt their operations,” the group said on Twitter. However, he specifies that the security systems have not been affected, in order to avoid emergency situations.

“We have the encryption keys, and are ready to get the service back up and running. Here are our terms: the release of the fifty political prisoners most in need of medical assistance, and the banning of Russian troops from entering the territory”, asks Cyber ​​Partisan.

Slow down Russian forces

On Telegram, the group published several images proving their infiltration into the servers of Belarusian Railroad.

A spokesperson for the group confirmed to Bloomberg that the main goal was to slow the progress of Russian forces, and not to obtain a ransom, unlike a majority of cyberattacks of this nature.

For several hours on Monday, the railway company’s website displayed a message explaining that certain services, such as buying tickets online, were not working. Everything seems to be back to normal on Tuesday. However, the concrete consequences of the attack are not yet clear.

New images published Tuesday, January 25 by Release document the last moments of Cédric Chouviat, 42-year-old delivery man and father, who died in Paris two days after a police check carried out on January 3, 2020. Hospitalized in critical condition, he was declared dead on January 5.

In these images, captured by the delivery man’s phone, we hear him say that he “choking” as he is tackled to the ground by police officers. So far, the police have always denied having heard the cries of agony of the victim.

At the start of the long video of just over three minutes, we hear in particular the exchange between a police officer and Cédric Chouviat after the arrest and the verbalization of the latter. “That’s how you like to fine people, it’s your job”, says, at first, Cédric Chouviat, who films the police after being fined. “Yes sir, you put oil on your plate on purpose to hide it”, replies the policeman. “You don’t even know that. Please don’t touch me. My scooter is dirty, my plate is dirty, and yes”, answers Cédric Chouviat.

Then the exchange becomes tense on both sides. It was then that the police tackled Cédric Chouviat to the ground. “I stop. Hey, I’m suffocating. I choke. I choke. I’m suffocating…” repeats the delivery man nine times.

The day before these revelations, a new medical report on the death of Cédric Chouviat confirmed the responsibility of the three police officers, leaving the question of their voluntary character to the investigating judge.

In this document dated January 8, the five medical experts appointed by the judge retain as the cause of death a “simultaneous combination of several factors” stemming from gestures of interpellation having “resulted in a very rapid deprivation of oxygen to the brain”.

Neither the gestures of interpellation when he was still standing nor his fall “caused by discomfort”, according to experts.

A reconstruction of the events must take place

“The problem arises from the moment when the victim, obese with a short neck and a helmet on the head attached under the chin, finds himself in a ventral position with support and support in the dorsal region, a forearm passed forward of the neck that lifts the body to free the arms and bring them behind the back, in a general atmosphere of stress with opposition and struggle”, they summarize in one sentence.

For them, it was on the ground that the death of Cédric Chouviat was played out: the movement back and forth of the“forearm under the chin” would have generated a “mechanical crushing of the trachea” and some “carotid”.

As specified Release, it remains to be seen whether the police heard the words of Cédric Chouviat, recorded by the microphone of his helmet.

To find out if the police were able to hear the delivery man’s cries of agony, which they dispute, a reconstruction of the events, which should insist on the auditory aspect, should be organized soon, according to indications from concordant sources. to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

A requalification of the facts could then be played out in “intentional violence resulting in death”, a crime punishable by assizes, as requested by the family.

Asked about the new medical expertise, Me Laurent-Franck Lienard, lawyer for two of the police officers, declined to comment. Me Thibault de Montbrial, the lawyer for the other two, did not respond to AFP.

Day off, traffic disrupted, electricity cut: heavy snowfalls turned daily life upside down on Tuesday, January 25, in Athens and paralyzed air traffic at Istanbul airport, one of the busiest in Europe.

While three flights were allowed to land in Istanbul on Tuesday morning, the situation remained chaotic at the airport in the Turkish megalopolis, where many exasperated tourists, stranded inside the terminals, were waiting for their planes, according to a photographer from the Agence France-Presse (AFP).

“Only one of the three runways is now open to traffic”, an airport official told AFP.

Snow grounded several flights at Istanbul airport on January 25, 2022.

Turkey’s main airline, Turkish Airlines, announced that its flights from Istanbul would not resume until midnight on Tuesday, but its passengers complained that they were not kept informed. Images shared on social networks showed passengers sleeping on armchairs or on the ground in the terminals.

Non-working days

In Athens, the paralysis of the road network, covered with a thick white coat, in particular on the Attiki Odos motorway ring road, forced the Greek government to decree two days off Tuesday and Wednesday.

Abandoned cars on the Attiki Odos motorway ring road in Athens on January 25, 2022.

All public and private services have been suspended in Attica, the Athens region, and on some snowy islands, except for essential services.

Heavy snowfall disrupted the lives of Athenians on January 25, 2022.

In the streets of Athens, the traffic of buses and trolleys is at a standstill. It is impossible to move, the roads remain cluttered with piles of snow, broken tree branches and cars broken down or abandoned by their occupants.

3,500 motorists trapped

On the toll ring road that circles Athens and serves the airport, “3,500 motorists” had to be evacuated overnight after being trapped by snowfall “exceptional”, Greek Civil Protection and Climate Change Minister Christos Stylianides reported on Tuesday.

Blankets, food, water bottles were distributed to motorists and many of them had to abandon their vehicles on the snow-covered road as the temperature fell below zero.

Christos Stylianides s’est “excused” for the incidents on the device but returned the responsibility to the management company which “failed to leave open this very busy axis”.

Attiki Odos’ company also apologized for these “unprecedented incidents” but pointed out that the problems were due “either to vehicle breakdowns, or to the lack of experience of motorists, some of whom were afraid”. Under pressure from the government, she promised « 2 000 euros » of damages per car stuck on the highway it manages.

power cut

The Athens Public Prosecutor’s Office has opened an investigation to find the responsibilities of the “disturbances and obstructions to traffic”, according to a judicial source.

The current was cut in several corners of Attica.

With the exception of the ring road, which remained closed on Tuesday, “almost all of the major axes [d’Athènes] have reopened » to traffic, welcomed the governor of Attica, George Patoulis, warning however on the public channel ERT TV that other snowfalls are expected in the evening.

But on the island of Euboea, ravaged by unprecedented forest fires last summer, the roads remained cut off. As on other islands of the Cyclades, deprived, moreover, of means of maritime transport because of the strong winds.

Every day, the numbers go crazy. With an average of nearly 361,000 new daily contaminations as of January 24, according to data from Public Health France (FPF), France is one of the countries with the highest number of new cases of Covid-19 in Europe. .

“We have favored freedom of movement, especially for the holidays, where other countries have implemented harsh measures”, assumed Olivier Véran, the Minister of Health, on LCI, Tuesday, January 25. In fact, various indicators show that, despite an intense fifth wave, the French are indeed more mobile than their European neighbors.

This is what the travel data published by Google show. Since the start of the pandemic, the company has uploaded aggregated and anonymized files based on the geolocation information of its mobile users. This makes it possible to quantify the mobility of the population in all the countries of the world. After comparing the number of people having used transport, a place of work or the time spent at home with this same data in normal times (early 2020), Google publishes a percentage of variation allowing to know to what extent the population remains more At her place. Or on the contrary, is more mobile.

The French travel more than their European neighbors

First telling indicator: the frequency of use of public transport identified by Google when a user uses the metro, bus or train, for example. As of January 20, 2022, the French used transport less than at the start of 2020, since their use has decreased by 19%.

But as the graph below shows, this drop is less steep than in other European countries. In the UK it is almost twice as high, at 36.9%, and in Denmark it is 33.7%. The Spanish figures are more similar to those in France, with a 20.8% reduction in transport ridership.

The government has also been urging those who can to encourage teleworking for months. Since January 3, 2022, companies that have the possibility are required to set three to four days of distance per week. This results in less frequentation of workplaces, according to the analysis of data provided by Google: on January 20, 2022, there was a drop in frequentation of these places, up to around 17%, compared to the beginning of the year. year 2020. This is a steeper drop than before the December holidays, when it was only around 7%. But it is difficult to know in what proportion this is due to sick leave.

Here again, the comparison with the data of our European neighbors shows a greater mobility of the French. As the curves below show, on January 20, the drop in attendance at workplaces was, for example, greater in the United Kingdom (-22.7%) or in Denmark (-19.9%). Only Germany was above (-10%) the French level. The trough observed on the chart between mid-December 2021 and early January 2022 corresponds to the end-of-year holidays.

The French spend less time at home than in previous waves

Mirroring the decline in use of transport and workplaces, there is an increase in time spent at home, also calculated by Google.

Currently, according to data provided by Google, the French spend 6.8% more time at home compared to the beginning of 2020. But if we compare this period to those where the number of hospitalizations was similar (during the first three waves), this increase in the time spent at home in recent weeks is smaller.

This is what the curve below represents: in red, the home attendance indicator during previous epidemic peaks. While it was +30% in March 2020, it fell to +16% in winter 2020, and to +14% in spring 2021.

Ile-de-France residents are a little less mobile than residents of other regions

But is the whole of France concerned in the same proportions by this development? By observing the increase in home attendance by region, we realize that Ile-de-France is experiencing, as of January 20, 2022, a 9.5% increase in the time spent at home compared to the beginning of the year. 2020. The highest increase known by the French regions. By way of comparison, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes experienced an increase of 6.8% and Brittany of 5.1%.

These territorial disparities are hardly surprising, and should be compared to the differences in teleworking capacity of population areas, for example. During the second confinement, in the fall of 2020, franceinfo had shown a correlation between the drop in attendance at workplaces and the share of senior executives among the assets of a territory, these executives being more likely to work remotely.

“I’ll show you the deal point, the meeting places, the shiteux canteen…”. Appointment is given, this Tuesday, January 25, 2022, in front of the town hall of the district of Pontanézen, west of Brest. A man, in his thirties, approaches without stopping. “Follow me,” he said. With a brisk step, he joins a small quiet garden. “I don’t want to be spotted with a journalist.” It’s 1 p.m. Flat calm. “This is the time when the deal point gets under way. We will go to my place, we will have to be careful, warns our opener. I will walk thirty meters ahead, you will follow me. Keep your bicycle helmet in your hand, it will give you the look of a sportsman or a delivery man”.

“There, that’s the deal point”

The tone is set. Let’s go for the visit of the hottest urban complex of the moment. “There, it is the point of deal. There are not many people today. Perhaps pressure from the prefect… Look, next door you have the business apartments, opposite, a caravan, a tent and chairs. In the neighborhood, it is called the shiteux canteen. She arrived two months ago and helps feed those who work here. Nobody understood how something like this could happen on the public highway, ”says the resident, without taking any gloves.

Women come home from shopping. A young person gets into a vehicle. We arrive at the foot of a tower. A glance supported in the hall to make sure that the place is free and we rush. In his mailbox, our guide finds the good wishes of the mayor of the district which he opens in the elevator. He goes down one floor below his HLM housing. A ruse, just to confuse the tracks and not indicate its exit point to possible “choufs” on the lookout. The inhabitant opens his door and closes it twice. “Look at this splendid view of the neighborhood! “, he quips, the window wide open. “From here, I miss nothing of the show. The movements of vehicles, the confusion, the rodeos, the customers who pass on foot, by car, on an electric scooter. The main deal point is concentrated not far from the tram tracks. The line has been interrupted since the ambush on Saturday evening. Less good for business…”

juicy traffic

“Look at the basketball court”, engages the watchtower of “Ponta”. “The municipality thought it was doing well but it became the main recruitment point for the youngest”. Behind the car, in the corner, eyes spotted our ballet of overly curious people. “Don’t hang around, they don’t know who you are” enjoins the guide more feverishly.

Is the neighborhood that much under pressure? “Me, I’ve felt it here for ten years. The morning of my arrival, I found the neighborhood pretty good. It’s always quiet between 8:30 am and 10 am. A few hours later, I experienced my first car fire,” recalls our 30-year-old. Not tender as to the action of the municipality. More lenient vis-à-vis the prefect Philippe Mahé who announced additional police resources.

“We are hoping for a long-term effort, but there is work to be done given the sums that the traffic generates, he believes. You have to see the money in some families and the trips that some pay for themselves. And the paraphernalia they have on them or in their cars… Pistols, automatic weapons, shotguns… Explosions ring out in the night… It’s fortunate that they only use their firecrackers against the firefighters and the police! “.

“Much more than thirty to tamper with! »

How many are there to traffic? “The prefect evokes about thirty individuals. But it was only those who were on duty that night,” he said. After 7 p.m., it is best to avoid the area around the deal point, according to our interlocutor. “I try to go around so as not to meet bad people. You can chat with the big brothers, ask them if business is good and have a little laugh. But it is strictly impossible with the youngest who, as the day progresses, have their nostrils full. At first, I felt sorry for the little ones. But not anymore. Some get angry for a yes or a no. I no longer try to argue with them. It makes me think of the misadventure of the deputy mayor, Yohann Nédélec, threatened with death last week in Ponta. By coming to introduce themselves to them, it was a foregone conclusion. What did he expect? »

“Not rich enough to leave”

Why stay in this area? “I’m saving to leave. Everything is complicated when you live in “Ponta”. For your steps, you can say “Europe Quarter” in vain, but that doesn’t create illusions for very long. Here, I feel like a prisoner who has not committed any crime. My crime is not being rich enough to leave this place”.

Tuesday, January 18, around 9 p.m., photographer René Robert fell in the Parisian district of République. Not a passerby reacts to the sight of this body lying on the sidewalk. Around 6 a.m., a homeless man finally alerted the emergency services. But it’s too late.

“To René Robert, murdered in the middle of the street in Paris by the indifference of passers-by”, was moved by one of his relatives, the journalist Michel Mompontet, greeting “a gentle, sensitive and humanist friend”.

No one rescued him. René Robert died alone, frozen with cold, in a busy street in the capital. Nine hours spent on the asphalt without anyone helping him.

“No passerby stopped to see why this gentleman was lying on the sidewalk. Nobody”, still denounces Michel Mompontet.

The time for questioning

For more than 50 years, René Robert immortalized flamenco dancers. Kept them alive, in black and white, eternally glossy. And died out in general indifference.

The only outstretched hand: that of this homeless man, whom Michel Mompontet is now trying to find.

On Twitter, and in an editorial broadcast on the Franceinfo channel, Michel Mompontet paid a vibrant tribute to the Franco-Swiss artist. And himself wondered: “Am I 100% sure that if I had been confronted with this scene, I would have stopped?”

Because that is undoubtedly the real question, in the eyes of the journalist. Who hopes that this tragic news item can, at least, help to alert consciences.

“When a human is lying on the sidewalk, as rushed as we are, let’s check their condition. Let’s stop for a moment, ”he pleaded.

René Robert had dedicated his life to flamenco and had devoted three books to it. Having become a master in the art of capturing suspended moments, he summed up his work as follows: “I was just there at the right time”.

Last year, he donated thousands of photos to the National Library of France.

Driver Sébastien Loeb and his co-driver Isabelle Galmiche won the Monte-Carlo rally at the wheel of a Ford Puma Rally1 Hybrid. A first for the hybrid era in rallying and a publicity stunt for the manufacturer.

After a duel against his compatriot Sébastien Ogier, the nine-time world rally champion Sébastien Loeb wins the Monte-Carlo Rally with his co-driver Isabelle Galmiche. He thus becomes, at the age of 47, the first winner of the new hybrid era in motorsport. A victory that marks a real turning point because, in addition to the performance of the French driver (his 80th race victory), it anchors the new challenges linked to energetic transitions in motorsport.

Indeed, this first round of the 2022 World Rally Championship (WRC) inaugurated the new M-Sport Ford hybrid engines. The powertrain of the Ford Puma Rally1 Hybrid consists of a 380 hp 1.6 ecoboost engine, to which is added a 100 kW (134 hp) electric motor powered by a 3.9 kWh battery. If recharging takes 25 minutes and makes it possible to reach connection points during the all-electric race, the interest of the system lies above all in the addition of power it offers to the heat engine. By recovering kinetic energy during braking and coasting, the boost extra allows the Ford Puma to deliver 500 hp and 500 Nm of torque for a 0 to 100 km/h shot in 3.2 s. Power is sent to the ground through four-wheel drive and through a front and rear mechanical limited-slip differential for 50/50 torque split.

For its part, the International Automobile Federation (FIA) has declared that from this 2022 season, WRC competitors will use a non-fossil fuel, mixing synthetic and biomass elements (organic waste). The manufacturer Ford, meanwhile, announces that its range will be 100% electric or rechargeable hybrid by mid-2026. With this victory, the manufacturer therefore offers a nice publicity stunt for its hybrid engines.

COVID-19 FRANCE. The coronavirus continues to fill hospitals in France, with levels similar to last spring, even if the number of critical care patients continues to decline very slowly. There are also more than 360 deaths in 24 hours this Tuesday, January 25, 2022. A very heavy toll…

The coronavirus epidemic is still particularly strong in France, with a new record broken in the results of this Tuesday, January 25, 2022: 501 635 case were identified in 24 hours according to the latest figures provided by the authorities. A new record, with 36,866 more cases than last Tuesday, and a first above half a million. The 7-day average increases to 366,179 cases recorded daily against 360,912 yesterday and the incidence rate to 3,726.43 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in France currently (3,680.70 yesterday).

Conventional hospitalizations also continue to progress and we go back, in the results of this Tuesday, above the 30 000 hospitalized patients with Covid-19 (30,189 to be exact, up 441 from yesterday). 3741 people are in intensive care, a figure still falling for its part (-35). Over the past 24 hours, 3,842 patients have been admitted to hospital, 489 more than the day before and 333 more compared to last Tuesday. 380 intensive care admissions were recorded, 43 more than yesterday and 13 more than last Tuesday.

The number of deaths recorded in one day at the hospital is particularly high. He reaches 363 dead in 24 hours in France, ie 30 less than yesterday but 75 more than last Tuesday. This balance sheet increases to 467 additional deaths if we take into account the update of deaths in Ehpad on Tuesday.

Here is the latest official data available on Covid-19 in France according to the daily reports from Public Health France and Data.gouv, based on data from SI-DEP tests, hospital data and feedback from medico-social establishments, including the nursing homes. Many clarifications are necessary to properly understand these figures. They are detailed below the table:

PRECISION – Since January 16, the official publication of the total number of confirmed cases since the start of the epidemic (total accumulation) has been suspended “en due to an extension of the data consolidation period”, specifies Data.gouv.

Here is the number of cases of Covid-19, deaths, hospitalizations, resuscitations and cures observed in more or less compared to the previous assessment (generally the day before). Latest data available in France according to daily reports from Public Health France and Data.gouv:

New cases of covid, test positivity rate, share of the population tested… Linternaute offers you free access to data on the evolution of the epidemic in your municipality. See

From daily data on the coronavirus in France, we have developed several curves which allow us to observe the evolution of the virus according to the number of confirmed cases, the number of hospitalizations and patients in intensive care, the number of deaths in the hospital and total deaths and the number of returns home, assimilated to cures.

For each graph, the curve represents the total (e.g. total cases, hospitalizations in progress) while the bars correspond to daily changes (balances of hospitalizations each day, new deaths, etc.).

Details on the number of cases: Public Health France specifies that “the data can be very variable depending on the screening activities (reduction of activities on weekends for example, mechanically lowering the number of cases on Monday) and the deadlines for reporting results” (generally 24 at 48 hours). Several changes in the method of recording positive tests may also have disrupted the accounting of cases:

Details on hospitalizations: it is necessary to distinguish here the evolution of the total number of patients hospitalized at a time T and the new hospitalizations, in other words the new admissions each day to the hospital (gross). In one case, it is a balance, which takes into account admissions, but also discharges from the hospital (healings or deaths). In the other, we are only talking about new admissions to hospital or intensive care with Covid over a day.

Public Health France also specifies that these figures take into account patients admitted to hospital “with” Covid-19 and not “for” Covid-19. They can therefore take into account patients hospitalized for another reason. “Among all Covid-19 patients, the proportion of patients admitted to hospital for a reason other than Covid-19 (but carriers of SARS-CoV-2)” was between 21 and 26% at the beginning of January according to French public health.

Precision on the number of deaths: since May 2020, Public Health France no longer updates the balance sheet in Ehpad daily. This report was updated every week at the end of the summer, then several times a week to finally stabilize at a rate of once or twice a week. We therefore initially preferred to erase the number of daily deaths in nursing homes so as not to skew the graphs. At the request of several readers, since November 13, 2020, we are again displaying updates of deaths in nursing homes (dark gray bars) which causes artificial peaks during updates. Data errors and corrections have also been reported on several occasions by Public Health France since mid-March 2020 but also observed at the end of 2021, sometimes resulting in overestimates generally followed by negative changes in the number of deaths.

The Ministry of Health calculates, from the raw data, a series of statistics on the progression of Covid-19 in the country. Four particularly important indicators are presented below: the positivity rate of RT-PCR tests, the incidence rate, the effective reproduction number and the occupancy rate of intensive care beds. If the first and the last are easily understandable (percentage of positive tests out of the total number of tests carried out and percentage of intensive care beds occupied according to the initial capacities of the country), the other two deserve a definition.

The incidence rate, represented by the second curve, is considered a key indicator of the virulence of the virus. This is the number of new cases of coronavirus diagnosed by PCR test that have occurred over the past 7 days. This figure is related to the number of inhabitants, ie a rate expressed per 100,000 inhabitants.

Playback name (R) corresponds to the average number of people infected by a patient. If this figure is greater than 1, it means that a person with Covid-19 infects more than one other person on average and therefore that the disease is progressing.

Precision on the positivity rate and the incidence rate: Public Health France changed its calculation method for its main indicators, which are the incidence rate and the test positivity rate on December 8, 2020. The addition of antigenic tests in the first indicator then mechanically inflated the result of the calculation. . The positivity rate has dropped drastically. The reason this time comes from the counting of negative tests: if the same person has carried out several tests within 60 days and these are negative, each of them is now counted. Previously, if a person tested negative several times in a row within 60 days, only the first test was counted. It was only in the event of a positive test that his situation changed.

Public Health France explained in a press release that this new method of calculation proved to be more precise because it takes into account the “prevalence of the virus in the population tested”. “Today, as the epidemic continues, it is common for the same person to carry out several tests, especially when the previous ones were negative. In addition, knowledge has evolved and the risk of reinfection, which today is considered very low but possible after 60 days, must be able to be identified”, wrote the health agency at the time.

COVID-19 FRANCE. The coronavirus continues to fill hospitals in France, with levels similar to last spring, even if the number of critical care patients continues to decline very slowly. There are also more than 360 deaths in 24 hours this Tuesday, January 25, 2022. A very heavy toll…

The coronavirus epidemic is still particularly strong in France, with a new record broken in the results of this Tuesday, January 25, 2022: 501 635 case were identified in 24 hours according to the latest figures provided by the authorities. A new record, with 36,866 more cases than last Tuesday, and a first above half a million. The 7-day average increases to 366,179 cases recorded daily against 360,912 yesterday and the incidence rate to 3,726.43 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in France currently (3,680.70 yesterday).

Conventional hospitalizations also continue to progress and we go back, in the results of this Tuesday, above the 30 000 hospitalized patients with Covid-19 (30,189 to be exact, up 441 from yesterday). 3741 people are in intensive care, a figure still falling for its part (-35). Over the past 24 hours, 3,842 patients have been admitted to hospital, 489 more than the day before and 333 more compared to last Tuesday. 380 intensive care admissions were recorded, 43 more than yesterday and 13 more than last Tuesday.

The number of deaths recorded in one day at the hospital is particularly high. He reaches 363 dead in 24 hours in France, ie 30 less than yesterday but 75 more than last Tuesday. This balance sheet increases to 467 additional deaths if we take into account the update of deaths in Ehpad on Tuesday.

Here is the latest official data available on Covid-19 in France according to the daily reports from Public Health France and Data.gouv, based on data from SI-DEP tests, hospital data and feedback from medico-social establishments, including the nursing homes. Many clarifications are necessary to properly understand these figures. They are detailed below the table:

PRECISION – Since January 16, the official publication of the total number of confirmed cases since the start of the epidemic (total accumulation) has been suspended “en due to an extension of the data consolidation period”, specifies Data.gouv.

Here is the number of cases of Covid-19, deaths, hospitalizations, resuscitations and cures observed in more or less compared to the previous assessment (generally the day before). Latest data available in France according to daily reports from Public Health France and Data.gouv:

After the political crisis, police sanctions? British police announced on Tuesday January 25 the opening of an investigation into possible violations of health restrictions linked to Covid-19 during parties organized at Downing Street, the residence of the Prime Minister, and in Whitehall, the premises of the government. In total, the British press identified eleven potentially illegal parties.

The investigation aims “a number of events”, according to Cressida Dick, chief of London’s Metropolitan Police, in a press release (in English). Others were investigated but investigators ruled they were not part of a criminal investigation, she said. The head of government promised to “cooperate fully” with the police.

So far, the police had ruled out seizing “Partygate”, which politically weakens the Prime Minister Boris Johnson, present at some of these gatherings. An internal investigation had however been entrusted to a senior official, and its conclusions were expected in the coming days. The police explain that they decided to act in the light of information from this internal investigation which had been transmitted to them.

“The fact that we are now investigating does not, of course, mean that fines will necessarily be issued in every case and for every person involved”, underlined Cressida Dick.
