• Emmanuel Macron will send the French the last wishes of his mandate as president, at 8 p.m. His speech will be proactive and optimistic, despite the health situation which borders on “shit”, according to one of his friends. You can watch his speech on our live stream.

New record. According to figures released this evening by Public Health France, 232,200 new cases have been identified in the past 24 hours. This represents 141,291 cases per day on average over the last 7 days.

• New Year’s Eve under close surveillance. Some 95,000 police and gendarmes are mobilized in France, including 9,000 in Paris, for New Year’s Eve. They intend in particular to enforce the ban on spontaneous gatherings in the face of the surge in Covid-19 cases. Almost 3,200 soldiers from the Sentinel force were added to it.

• How to celebrate the transition to the New Year in such a tense health context? While Olivier Véran announced on Wednesday that more than a million French people were currently positive for Covid-19, some could be tempted to feast between infected people. Good idea ? Not so sure.

19h45 : The Elysee ensures that tonight’s speech will not be swallowed up by the health file. These wishes are also the last of the term for which Emmanuel Macron was elected in 2017. Every word from the outgoing president, who has not yet declared himself a candidate for the next presidential election, will therefore be scrutinized. “He has ants in his legs”, entrusts to franceinfo a relative, according to whom the current head of state keeps very remote the idea that these wishes can be the last.

19h43 : Emmanuel Macron presents his wishes in just under 20 minutes. The entourage of the Head of State assures Franceinfo that his speech will be proactive and optimistic, despite the health situation which borders on “shit”, according to one of his friends.
