Several large retailers will pay a bonus to their employees who were contacted during the health crisis. At Monoprix, it amounts to € 1,000. But one of them, employed in a store in Boulogne-Billancourt (Hauts-de-Seine), will only touch part of it, reports The Parisian.
This 55-year-old man contracted Covid-19 and was hospitalized from April 7 to 21. However, in this subsidiary of the Casino group, the premium is calculated in proportion to the working time. Because of his two weeks of hospitalization and his period of sick leave, the sick employee will therefore not be able to benefit from all of the € 1,000 he hoped to receive. However, the 50-year-old considers that he has “Risked his life” to go to work.
An “equity-based system”
Many employees are said to be in the same situation, such as part-time students or employees who had previously requested leave. “It is a system based on equity, depending on the effective presence of the employee, defends itself Monoprix quoted by the newspaper. A collaborator present for nine weeks is more impacted than one who is only there for five or six weeks “.
Several brands, such as Lidl and Auchan apply the same principle. The employee feels fooled: “They only think about money when they have made a phenomenal turnover”.
Like other supermarket workers, Zouhir, an employee of Monoprix, hoped to receive the exceptional bonus of 1,000 euros. However, hospitalized 15 days for having contracted the Covid-19 … it will only affect part of it! https://t.co/FHFeRamMhrpic.twitter.com/T0MvHNWs4v
The CGT denounces a “Injustice”. “His mistake was catching the Covid-19 and being out of the store since his hospitalization. Even store managers don’t understand. It’s a shame bonus ”, laments the daily Alain Sylvère Tsamas, union representative.
The union launched on Tuesday 12 May towing operations outside the Boulogne-Billancourt and Issy-les-Moulineaux stores to denounce the working conditions and the “thanks” offered by the brand.
Damien Roux, university professor and hospital practitioner of intensive resuscitation medicine, works in the medical and surgical resuscitation department of Louis-Mourier Hospital (AP-HP), located in Colombes, in the Hauts-de-Seine. As of last weekend, this doctor was responsible for reflecting – in collaboration with other colleagues from the Public Assistance taking care of Covid-19 patients – on the means of optimizing the use of drugs in the services of resuscitation, due to the ever increasing number of serious patients. “The aim was to anticipate the overconsumption of certain drugs in the same way that we have been trying to increase the number of nurses for the past month»He explains. Except that a week later, the fear of an imminent shortage of certain molecules became a reality in Ile-de-France. “Despite our prospects and our vigilance on the issue, it is clear that suppliers and manufacturers are no longer able to monitor the consumption of drugs or certain medical devices in our hospitals.He warns.
AP-HP Director General Martin Hirsch acknowledged at a press conference on Friday that “stocks are very short on certain drugs.“This Saturday evening, it’s Edouard Philippe who admits the existence of”supply tensions here and there” “We regulate them by ensuring the circulation of these products throughout the territory, because there are stocks.We guarantee it by making sure to encourage increased domestic and global productionAdded the Prime Minister. Update with Professor Roux.
What is the situation of Louis-Mourier resuscitation service today?
We fear the beginning of a stock shortage for the end of the weekend. We have visibility over two days. That is to say, we are not sure that our internal pharmacy will be able to supply us with all of the drugs necessary for optimal patient management. There is great concern because it is very likely that the AP-HP central pharmacy, despite all its efforts, may not be able to meet the demands of all hospitals and that we will end up with shortages during the restocking. This shortage situation is new but ultimately quite logical. Instead of having a variety of patients who require very different treatments, resuscitation services are currently finding themselves with a majority of Covid + patients who need the same molecules. It is this quantity of identical patients, hitherto unknown in our units, which causes the drug shortage.
Which families of molecules are likely to be lacking?
There is a strong tension on hypnotics. These are the molecules we use to keep patients in sleep in intensive care. The equation is therefore simple: if we run out of stocks, we will no longer be able to take care of new patients. It’s a real danger. We also fear a rapid shortage of curares, which allow the patient, once asleep, to prevent him from moving and therefore consume less oxygen. Curares are necessary because they allow these patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) to be completely ventilated by the ventilator. The last other concern concerns antibiotics. As we speak, I do not believe that an AP-HP hospital is lacking. But there is a risk of overconsumption in the days and weeks to come, because these serious patients in intensive care are at high risk of nosocomial infection. As you can see, the supply of these three groups of molecules is essential to save lives.
Your working group’s mission was to think of new protocols to save your stocks. A summary of your recommendations is currently being sent to all AP-HP hospitals. What does it contain?
At this stage, we propose an optimization of the sedation protocols in order to limit any use which is not absolutely necessary. A close relationship between the pharmacy and the resuscitation service is also necessary in order to anticipate any shortage of a molecule to refer to another close molecule. We also underlined the interest of associating other molecules making it possible to reduce the quantity of usual molecules to be administered. More specifically for sedation, one of the recommendations would also be to use the usual method of anesthesia in the operating room. It is a procedure that uses halogenated gases to put people to sleep and that we never use in most resuscitation services. This technique would also limit the use of curares.
At Louis-Mourier Hospital, where are you with your stock of syringe pumps, which allow the infusion of treatments? Some hospital structures already seem to be lacking…
We did the drawer bottoms and requisitioned all the units a little to find as many as possible. But indeed, faced with the impressive influx of resuscitation patients, we had to resolve to work with fewer electric syringe pumps per patient. For the moment, it does not degrade the quality of care but it causes discomfort in work for nurses who must regularly move this type of equipment from one room to another. Unless suppliers, especially Chinese, can quickly send us a large quantity of electric syringe pumps, we will have to modify the way we administer treatments to patients using less precise techniques.
For three days now, around 8 p.m., the confined French have been applauding them from their windows. These thanks and encouragement, to say the least welcome, undoubtedly put a balm on the hearts of hospital staff. The fact remains that at a time when the Covid-19 is deploying in France and mobilizing more and more beds in the intensive care units, it is the certainty of the time to come which is particularly tense and difficult which imposes itself on all these caregivers.
This apprehension stems from the unprecedented nature of the current epidemic and is increased by the lack of protective means (masks, gloves, hydroalcoholic gel) and equipment (artificial respirators). This maximum stress is added to the fatigue that preexisted Covid-19, in personnel already in tense flow because of budgetary savings. This is what the caregivers of the hospitals say: Release collected testimonies, across France.
Some are already hard, confro

Marc Amouretti, 32, is a doctor in the intensive care unit at Louis Mourier Hospital in Colombes (Hauts-de-Seine), an establishment dependent on the Public Assistance of Paris Hospitals (AP-HP). In the front line facing the Coronavirus epidemic, he tells Release his daily life and how his service is organized to cope.
“The Covid-19 becomes a reality for more than a week. We are now going beyond the “anecdotal” cases linked to a few well-established clusters, where we could almost trace the chains of contamination from one family member to another. From now on, the cases are multiplying, in more or less serious forms, and occupy an increasing part of the resuscitation beds. This pushes us to rethink our organization every day to optimize patient care, and in particular to ensure that those who do not have the coronavirus are not

This Sunday, January 19, nearly 800 people line the spans of the Arena Teddy Riner, the new temple of the ACCS Futsal Club Paris VA 92, inaugurated in Asnières-sur-Seine in July. Young people from the neighborhood, and not so young, came to encourage their team against Nantes, the highlight of the 12e day of the championship of France. The announcer takes advantage of a short period of calm to spread the news that brought the club to the front of the stage in early January: “You must have heard of it. The magic Ricardinho has signed with us… ” A round of applause, a power outage. Perfect representation of the difficulties of making futsal a major sport in France: imagine the Parc des Princes plunged into darkness at the time of Neymar’s presentation.
With the arrival of the Portuguese, 34, six times the best player in the world, more equal than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo than Neymar, the Ile-de-France club enters a new dimension. All the more spectacular since he waded in the French fifth division in 2014. In six years, the Lions achieved one of the most dazzling climbs of French sport: an ascent each year, the title of their division as a bonus. Except for last season, tarnished by a lost final after extra time against Toulon. A slight hitch that should quickly be removed. This Sunday, at the end of a dominated head and shoulders match, the Altoséquanais win 7 goals to 1. Unbeaten this season (apart from the first league match against Toulouse, lost on the green carpet for playing a suspended player, despite an 8-1 victory). At mid-championship, they prance at the top of the classification with a difference in stratospheric goals of over 55.
Why did the discipline megastar sign in Asnières? “This is the question I am asked the most, he replied to the magazine team February 7. It’s a new challenge. I have already played in minor championships, in Japan, in Russia. I’ve been in Spain for seven years, I’ve won everything I could win, and now I want to help a team grow, to promote a championship. ” The club’s boss Sami Sellami, 33, was behind the transfer. Originally from Asnières-sur-Seine, he went through a business school before working for twelve years in the voluntary sector. In 2008, he decided to create an association to help the inhabitants of the district. “We wanted to support accused persons in entrepreneurial projects. The social dimension has always been an integral part of our motivations ”, says he. Very quickly, a futsal section was created, initially to occupy the children and educate them through the prism of sport. The crowd is such that Sami Sellami smells the opportunity. He made futsal the alpha and omega of his activities and launched a senior team in 2014. At the time, the club was on promotion of honor (PH), the lowest level in France. There followed a series of blows. The first in 2016, when the Access (for Citizen, Cultural Educational and Sports Association football club, then in the third division) enrolled five French internationals. Among them, Abdessamad Mohammed (44 caps), just crowned champion of France with Le Kremlin-Bicêtre and voted best player in the championship. Still at Asnières, he explains that his decision was not dictated by greed: “I come from a neighborhood in Val-de-Marne. I am sensitive to this project because it conveys the same values as the club in which I grew up. The combination of sporting performance and social proximity brought me here. ”

This culture permeates all spheres of the club. The striker Sid Belhaj, a French international, regularly turns into an educator and supports teams of young people: “When they see us, they have stars in their eyes. Everyone here is making a contribution. We don’t just focus on team number 1. We have to prepare for the future. ”
This January 19, during the match against Nantes, a kop of twenty teenagers sang songs, drums in hand, throughout the match. At the end of the match, 15-year-old Ibrahim, Chris and Kilyan are juggling in front of the Arena. From Asnières, they play 11-a-side football in Racing and became fans of the club. “We are proud to be from Asnières. It gives a good image of the city. ” They rejoice in the close relationship they have forged with their idols: “The players come to our games and give us lots of advice. About working at school and listening to parents. They instill in us the sense of sacrifice. ”
But to attract the best players, social is not enough. Captain Kevin Ramirez joined the club in 2017 while playing at Lazio in Rome with professional player status. Yes “The acclimatization to D3 was difficult”, the Frenchman was won over by the great ambitions displayed by the president. “It’s the club’s credo, to make possible what is impossible. It is clear that it works. Today we are a locomotive because we have a very competitive workforce. “ Over time, sporting issues have taken up a lot of space. “We cannot be on all fronts”, regrets Sami Sellami, before correcting: “We are going to make futsal a lever. The goal is to say, “You see, we succeeded from scratch, we can do it in any field.” It’s our showcase product. ” The president is now targeting the Champions League. “This is the end goal. We have started a real revolution. Right now, we’re just looking like Louis XVI ”, he plastered with a broad smile. Before thinking about the big-eared cup, Lions must already win D1, the only way to qualify. It’s more than in their ropes.
Placed under the aegis of the French Football Federation (FFF) since a decision of the Ministry of Sports in 1997, the tricolor futsal is entirely amateur. A status that inexorably slows the rise of clubs. “To exist, it is essential that the pre-training of the players is effective”, abounds Sami Sellami. A position shared by Pierre Jacky, coach of the France team: “The development of futsal in France requires professionalization. We need structured clubs and real training capable of bringing out the best players of tomorrow. “ The situation is evolving slowly. Since 2015, clubs can offer professional contracts which are not approved by the International Football Federation. The rare players concerned are therefore protected by labor law but not by international bodies.
Female soccer model
Pressured since the recent performances of the France team, the federation decided to launch a futsal development policy in early 2019. It must be said that the Blues are going through the most auspicious period in their history, after a first participation in the Euro in 2018 and encouraging results against the best nations. They had never been so close to the World Cup but missed the last step in January, in a final qualifying tournament. “The federation was not prepared for the Euro, smiled Abdessamad Mohammed. We weren’t their priority, but they’ve responded well since. We play in large arenas with quality parquet floors and substantial technical resources. It changes from the small stages where the sound system broke down every second time. ”
To develop futsal, the FFF now relies heavily on the influence of the French team. A model inspired by the success of women’s football at 11. Except that the women present two clubs at the top: Lyon, which dominates Europe as a bully, and Paris, a new rich with disproportionate ambitions. Two gondola heads that French futsal can’t (yet) claim to own. “By playing in a top league and in contact with foreign internationals, the level of French players is constantly increasing, assures Pierre Jacky. The arrival of Ricardinho shows that we are going in the right direction. “ The federation has created a club license (endowment of 20,000 euros paid to those who meet a number of criteria, such as the opening of futsal schools for young people). A policy deemed satisfactory by Sami Sellami, for whom “it is above all the clubs to take responsibility “.
The Asnières outbreak is a boon for French futsal, which today has nearly 30,000 licensees, an increase of 12% in five years. But the future of the Lions does not look so bright. It is now a question of amortizing the pharaonic salary (for futsal) of Ricardinho (approximately one million euros charged per year, while the annual budget of the club is around 500,000 euros). Without forgetting that of future recruits. In December, the newspaper Team reported negotiations started with several very high level players. Without specifying the identity. Sami Sellami claims to have already signed four pre-contracts with “Stars of the same caliber as Ricardinho”. To the uncertainty linked to the municipal elections (the city provided financial support of 110,000 euros per year until last year) is added the urgency to find sponsors and to raise funds. The broadcasting of the matches, and the TV rights that would ensue, is a priority. The D1 teams hope to ride on the success of the French team, whose matches during Euro 2018 were broadcast by the channel L’Equipe. In the meantime, ACCS is trying to generate excitement on social media. Eliott Crenel was hired as a community manager for “Create a buzz and be talked about”. Once again, Ricardinho’s arrival, with his million followers on Instagram, should serve as a springboard.
The game’s rules
Futsal is played 5 against 5, 4 field players and a goalkeeper, on a handball field and with an anti-rebound ball. Nine substitutes may be entered on the match sheet and the coach may make unlimited changes. The match lasts two halves of twenty minutes (actual playing time). If a player commits a foul, the referee may blow a direct or indirect free kick or a penalty. There are yellow and red cards. The excluded player can be replaced after two minutes of penalty. If a team concedes a shorthanded goal, the substitute may enter the field immediately. All faults committed by a team in a half-time are added up. From the sixth, the referee must whistle a direct free kick without wall (ten meters from the opponent’s goal or closer depending on where the foul was committed).
