More flexible confinement to adopt an animal
From April 16, 2020, it will be possible to go to a refuge to adopt an animal, thanks to the certificate of displacement. This was announced by the Ministry of the Interior, Saturday, April 11, to respond to the saturation of shelters.

Reduced road mortality
Due to the confinement period , road mortality fell by 39.6% in March 2020, according to the latest estimates from the National Interministerial Observatory for Road Safety (ONISR).
On the other hand, the number of speeding trips (greater than 50 km / h above the authorized speed) is clearly increasing. Between March 30 and April 5, 2020, radars registered a 12% increase from the week before confinement.
StopCovid, the government’s tracking app
This application called StopCovid, would be used in the context of deconfinement. Still in the development stage, it would make it possible to identify the carriers of Covid-19 and to alert all those who have been in contact with it.
Objective: limit the chains of transmission of the virus.
The excess mortality figures
INSEE has published figures for excess mortality in France. The idea is to understand how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting the country’s mortality curve.
In summary, Ile-de-France and Grand-Est are the regions hardest hit by the virus, unlike New Aquitaine. Concerning the most impacted age category, it is that of the 75-84 years with an increase in deaths of 16% compared to 2019.
