The blue curve represents the cumulative number of cases detected since the first case was reported on March 2, 2020. The dotted red curve is a projection of the number of so-called "theoretical" cases. It is calculated on the basis of the lowest propagation coefficient recorded during the last seven days before the announcement of the general confinement, established on March 22, 2020. This coefficient stands at 1.11. If this rate of spread had been maintained, and in the absence of measures to slow down the epidemic, the number of people infected could have reached the hundreds of thousands.
