Estimates for France


Estimates presented here are no longer updated as of 31 March 2022. For more information on the rationale behind this move and some reflections on 2 years of global nowcasting and forecasting, please read our related blog post.

Using data available up to the: 2022-04-27

Note that it takes time for infection to cause symptoms, to get tested for SARS-CoV-2 infection, for a positive test to return and ultimately to enter the case data presented here. In other words, today’s case data are only informative of new infections about two weeks ago. This is reflected in the plots below, which are by date of infection.

See our see Methods or our paper for an explanation of how these estimates are derived.

Table 1: Latest estimates (as of the 2022-03-30) of the number of confirmed cases by date of infection, the expected change in daily confirmed cases, the effective reproduction number, the growth rate, and the doubling time (when negative this corresponds to the halving time). The median and 90% credible interval is shown for each numeric estimate.
New confirmed cases by infection date 174442 (81445 – 347501)
Expected change in daily cases Likely increasing
Effective reproduction no. 1.1 (0.76 – 1.4)
Rate of growth 0.024 (-0.068 – 0.12)
Doubling/halving time (days) 29 (6 – -10)
