Let the “festivities” begin.
As reported by AFP on Thursday, the prefecture of the Vosges detected a cluster of the Delta variant on its land. Six of the nine positive cases would be young inhabitants of Thillot, the other three residing in Fresse-sur-Moselle. All are from the same family and of Portuguese ancestry, according to the mayor of Thillot, Michel Mourot.
At the origin of their contamination by the Indian variant, a trip by minibus in June, to Hungary, to attend a match in Portugal at Euro 2020. Remember that the Puskás Aréna was the only stadium of the tournament with a spectator gauge set at 100% and that the wearing of a mask was completely optional. In response, the Grand-Est Regional Health Agency (ARS) launched a major call for vaccination as well as a free screening operation, jointly with the prefecture, to prevent the spread of the variant in the department.
Not sure that the number of R9 remains there so far.
