Professor Djillali Annane, head of the intensive care unit at Raymond-#Poincaré hospital in Garches (Hauts-de-#Seine) criticized Tuesday, December 29 on franceinfo the lack of “reactivity” government while the Minister of Health Olivier Véran announced a tightening of the curfew for 20 departments from Saturday, January 2. Djillali Annane does not understand why these curfews advanced at 6 p.m. would not be applied immediately in the departments where “both local elected officials demand it and the health situation requires it. It is worrying, this lack of responsiveness.”
The head of the intensive care unit at Raymond-#Poincaré hospital in Garches points out that a “A number of elected officials have already spoken for more than a week asking for stricter measures. We do not know why the decisions are not taken immediately, at least in certain territories. At least this measure covers – enlarged fire. ” According to Djillali Annane, there is “a discrepancy between the experience on the ground of the actors of the epidemic situation and the perception of it by the government and the Minister of Health, seeming to indicate that the situation is under control and that, unlike our European neighbors, it is it is not necessary to reconfine. “ And he insists: “I believe that this delay is once again likely to pay dearly. Over the past 24 hours, around 1,000 people have died from Covid-19.”
“There is an acceleration in France of the epidemic in this second wave which is still not over and which, for the moment, has already caused more deaths than the first wave, recalls the head of the intensive care unit of the Raymond-#Poincaré hospital in Garches. I fear that waiting for the beginning of January for any decisions to be taken will result in a worsening of the loss of control over the epidemic and a situation similar to that which our English colleagues are experiencing “.
“Today’s deaths correspond to contaminations from mid-#December and we know that there are currently more contaminations per day. So we can see that the number of severe forms and the number of deaths will continue to increase in the coming days “ he concludes.
