PARIS (REUTERS) – A new wave in France of Covid-19 infections fuelled by emerging variants of the disease should peak towards end-July, the French government’s top scientific adviser Jean-Francois Delfraissy said on Thursday (June 30).

“The peak is not yet here, this peak of infections will probably be for end-July,” Delfraissy told RTL radio.

“Then the BA.5 variant will reappear, if it is not overtaken by another variant …in autumn,” he added.

France reported 124,724 new coronavirus infections over the past 24 hours, against 77,967 a week ago.

The French government also recommended this week that people should start wearing face masks again in crowded areas, especially in public transport, to counter the latest surge in Covid-19 cases.
