The indicators of the health situation on Reunion Island are contrasted, with an incidence rate of around 107, but high tension in the intensive care units.
Despite everything, Prefect Jacques Billant decided not to re-define Réunion. However, he announced the extension of the measures in force until May 7, to fight against the coronavirus.
“We are in a better position than three weeks ago, which allows us not to pronounce a containment measure “, declared the prefect of Reunion, to our colleagues of The 1st.
If there is no containment, the curfew from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. is maintained, as well as the prolonged closure of bars, restaurants, cinemas, shows, sports and commercial areas of more than 10,000 m2.
The measures in force since the beginning of April are extended until May 7, 2021.
“We must be prepared to gradually reduce these restrictive measures as soon as the situation allows.“, confided Jacques Billant.
By next week the possibility of moving the curfew back to 7 p.m., and the opening of terrace restaurants will be discussed with the mayors.
