According to data from mobile applications, the movements of the French were more numerous this week, despite the confinement still in force to fight against the coronavirus.

The phenomenon was in the air even if it was amplified by the magnifying effect of social networks. After having greatly reduced their movements, the day after the start of confinement decided from March 17 to fight against the coronavirus, the French began to move – a little – in this third week out of time. This is indicated by the car travel curve of the Covimoov application, which, among other parameters, calculates a rate of compliance with confinement on the basis of data from different applications for smartphones and by the application itself. even.

It is considered that in normal times the French make an average of 24 trips per week (which corresponds to index1 on the curve and at the rate of 100% on the maps). On March 19, that number dropped to 8 before rising to around 11-12 this week, which means that people were making nearly one in two trips.

“A resumption of economic activity”

The two photographs of France, of March 26 and April 2, indicate that this trend concerns all the departments (even intramural Paris or those of the Grand-Est), but that it is a little more pronounced in certain places, as in the Southeast or the Arcachon basin.

“Since last Monday, there has been a slight relaxation in tourist areas, but also more trips to certain areas which are probably also explained by a recovery in economic activity”, explains Antoine Couret, president of the company Geo4cast, who developed the Covimoov application.

The prospect of the school holidays, which began Friday evening for zone C (Île-de-France and Occitanie), then the Easter weekend (April 11-13), in any case pushed the government to close the door to the traditional big departures. More than 160,000 police officers and gendarmes are mobilized this weekend to enforce the containment measures. On Saturday, when the capital was in a warm sunshine, there were a few people on the streets.

Covimoov offers its solution

While the government is working on a digital solution for the exit of deconfinement, the Covimoov application would like to be this one, since it allows to have information on the evolution of the epidemic around the place where the We are. To achieve this, this Franco-French realization of the company Geo4cast crosses three types of information: respect of confinement (by mobile data), sale of drugs and occupation of resuscitation services.

Its developers have not retained the logic of tracking, deemed too intrusive, but rely on anonymized and aggregated data with the consent of the users. “We respect all the protocols established by the Cnil and we are ready to submit to even stricter controls if the government chooses our solution”, explains Antoine Couret, president of Geo4cast. The application could be deployed internationally and aggregate operator data.
