In le Havre (Seine-Maritime), the communist Jean-Paul Lecoq is no longer without protection. "I wear my mask all the time, and complies with the distances. Each time, I meet with between five and six persons, not more", assures the candidate that comes second in the first round (35,87 %), behind the prime minister (43,59 %). Edward Philip referred to the"inventiveness" of the campaign teams to campaign otherwise? His competitor takes his word for it. "Instead of going door-to-door, you could go door-to-garden or speaking in front of buildings...", imagine-t-he, while asking to multiply by three the number of election boards in the city. "We are still waiting to see what will be possible or not depending of the evolution of the situation..."
