No immediate re-containment in Meurthe-et-#Moselle contrary to what the mayor of Nancy Mathieu Klein and the president of the departmental council of Meurthe-et-#Moselle Valérie Beausert-#Leick demanded. The Minister of Health Olivier Véran opened a consultation with local elected officials with a view to advancing the curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the most affected areas from January 2, 2021.
“Half a measure”
Guest of France Bleu Lorraine this Wednesday, December 30, Valérie Beausert-#Leick expressed doubts about this decision:
“I remain skeptical about the relevance of a half-measure. Bringing the curfew forward by two hours, I’m not sure it is quite concrete to stop the pandemic chain”.
The president of the department calls on the government to trust local elected officials and health professionals in the region.
“I hope the future will prove us wrong”
This government decision is sort of back off to better blow up according to Valérie Beausert-#Leick:
“I don’t think the French would understand that in mid-#January, after the outbreak of the epidemic, we would be forced to re-limit after having advanced the two-hour curfew. I hope that the future will prove us wrong and that ‘advancing this curfew will be enough.’
Curfew advanced to 6 pm on January 2: “a measure which may prove insufficient” according to the mayor of Nancy
