By identifying immunized people, these devices would shorten containment. But it will be necessary to be patient, warn the scientists.

As France begins its second week of confinement, concern is growing among the population: when will it be possible to go out again freely? On Tuesday, March 24, the Minister of Health said he was now certain that the confinement would be extended. If the authorities have not yet specified the exact duration, the scientific council which directs the executive estimates that it must last “at least six weeks from its establishment”. Or until April 28, at a minimum.

And for good reason: no vaccine or treatment will be available soon and the curves of the epidemiologists suggest that the epidemic will continue for months … The only way to fight the spread of the disease is therefore, for now, containment. However, there is hope: serological tests could help get out of there faster than expected.
