Since the publication of our information report of April 24, 2020, it seems that the fire outbreaks are now extinct. The new information report published today by IRSN contains the latest information available and updates the modeling of the trajectories of the fire-contaminated air masses.
It also offers a summary of events that have occurred and of their consequences, particularly in France. All the measurements, the modeling results and the dosimetric estimates confirm that these fires did not have any health consequences on the national territory.
