The essentials of France Bleu Matin. Still with the coronavirus epidemic raging in retirement homes Example this morning at the Croisilles nursing home, between Arras and Bapaume.
Out of a hundred residents, 78 have tested positive for covid since mid-December, as well as 29 employees. Some turned out to be particularly serious, as Thibaut Gargam, the director of the nursing home, explained at 7 a.m.
Jean Létoquart, CGT representative of health personnel, himself an anesthetist nurse at the Lens hospital, was the guest of France Bleu Nord, just before 8 a.m. He deplores the lack of personnel. Caregivers hired during the first wave but who were not taken over this fall.
Another reason for indignation: the living conditions of migrants in Grande-Synthe. PS North Senators Patrick Kanner and Martine Filleul denounce “unworthy” living conditions after having visited the Grande-Synthe migrant camp near Dunkirk. They are calling for a real welcome policy. Karima Delli, the ecologist MEP from the North, agrees.
