No re-containment in Reunion, but a “braking action”
With a much lower number of cases than in metropolitan France, Reunion is not affected by this second confinement. The prefect, Jacques Billant, however announced, Friday afternoon, a “local strategy adapted to the epidemiological situation” to continue “l‘slowing down the spread of the epidemic “.
Among these measures, the return of the ban on travel from or to Reunion Island, except for “a compelling personal or family reason, a health reason or a professional reason”. In other words, the end of tourist flights.
The prefect has also decided to strengthen controls in bars and restaurants, as well as to ban gatherings of more than six people – especially on beaches and picnic places. The mask remains compulsory in busy streets, and sporting events are “prohibited on public roads”.
A curfew will come into effect if the incidence rate exceeds the threshold of 100 per 100,000 inhabitants.
In the island, the average number of confirmed cases per day is increasing, but this figure remains six times lower than in metropolitan France. Twelve people are currently hospitalized in intensive care. Since March 11, 5,659 cases have been diagnosed and 22 deaths recorded.
