After a year, the results of the French strategy against the Covid are inglorious. We have had two periods of confinement, several months of curfew, with a major economic impact, and despite this, the toll has just exceeded 80,000 deaths. The future is not very bright, since despite the arrival of vaccines we have been living since the beginning of the year under the threat of re-containment.
