Coronavirus, Europe, France, Health, Infection, Science, Testing, Transmission

Officials say the Paris region may be headed toward a new lockdown as new Covid-19 variants fill up hospitals’ intensive care wards and limited vaccine supplies drag down inoculation efforts.

Special medical planes dispatched patients from the Paris area to less-saturated regions over the weekend.

“If we have to lock down, we will do it,” the head of the national health agency, Jerome Salomon, said on BFM television Sunday. “The situation is complex, tense and is worsening in the Paris region.”
