Several associations are asking for the urgent release of some 900 people present in administrative detention centers in France, places they deem unsuitable for government-sponsored coronavirus protection measures. More than 900 individuals were still being detained in various centers throughout France.Because of the situation, various judges have started releasing individuals whose detention extension had been requested, because keeping these individuals detained would have contravened the health guidelines. Twelve people in Bordeaux were freed. The Mayotte enter was closed. The centres of Mesnil Amelot and Vincennes have not released anyone.The Ministry of the Interior has not responded to the inquiries of various non-profits.
