TOWARDS A CONTAINMENT LIFTING AFTER MAY 10

Several sources in the entourage of Emmanuel Macron indicate that the head of state plans to extend the confinement until at least after May 10. The Elysée Palace, when questioned, did not comment on the article Sunday newspaper citing confinement that may continue until the end of May, as well as a reopening of schools only in September.

According to those close to the president, the head of state “should evoke a date for the end of confinement in May, at least after the bridge of May 8-10. A date sufficiently distant to understand that we can then begin a beginning of partial deconfinement, but extremely progressive “.

He should thus opt for a deadline “far enough to make people understand the effort that remains to be made, but close enough to sketch France after”. In any case, what seems certain is that the return to normal will not be immediate. No way no example to reopen shops and schools immediately, but a reopening of schools only in September is not decided, according to these sources.

ALLERGIES

Runny nose, sneezing … With spring, it is the season of pollens and allergies. But in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, some people hesitate to take their treatment for fear of promoting infection or fear of missing symptoms of the Covid-19 viral disease.

However “the temperature may be slightly skewed by taking other drugs, such as Doliprane and for some patients with severe asthma, the fever may be masked by long-term cortisone use. In case of unusual shortness of breath , you have to consult, “she said.

REACTION

On LCI, the former director general of health is shooting at the government’s strategy.

CHINA

China announced Sunday 97 new “imported cases” of contamination with the new coronavirus, that is to say due to people arriving from abroad. A level never reached since the beginning of March and the publication of this statement.

The epidemic is globally contained in the country: only two additional local cases have been identified by the Ministry of Health. But authorities are worried about a second epidemic wave brought by international travelers. Faced with this phenomenon, China closed its borders at the end of March to almost all foreigners. The new imported cases are therefore mainly the result of Chinese returning home.

Foreign nationals, however, remain under surveillance. Especially in Beijing where many found on Sunday that their “health code” had suddenly gone from green (no problem) to orange (obligation to be quarantined at home).

Confined. The French learned a few days ago that the confinement would extend beyond a month, a period during which they will continue to learn to respect distancing measures and, when they do not leave their home, to tame life locked up at home.

Since March 16, we have been informed every evening of the – tragic – number of people who have died in hospitals, carried away by the Covid-19. As of April 10, more than 12,000 people had died in France.

We also know that at our borders, a massacre takes place in Italy (more than 18,000 dead), in Spain (more than 15,000), and it is now in the United States that the virus is wreaking havoc. Out of a fortnight’s death a fortnight ago, today there are more than 16,000.
