A verb that is alive and well for the resumption of performances

In the heart of Paris, the life seems to have resumed its course. The sidewalks are full of bystanders, the terraces of cafes are full. In this agitation, the metal bars lowered and red letters out, the theatres of the grands boulevards wait, inert, such vessels asleep.

At the end of the day, the 22 June, a crowd has formed in front of one of them. Microphones and cameras do not lose a crumb of the event : spectators entering the Theatre Antoine. They are the first for more than three months. The same morning, the limit of a gauge to 50 % of the rooms have been lifted, but many seats remain condemned for some health precautions.

As the lights fade, Jacques Weber made his entrance by the orchestra, in the middle of the public without sulking the pleasure of the reunion. The comedian indulges greedily in an exercise that he likes : reading his favorite authors, Hugo and Flaubert in the head. He tried to roll of words, jumped from one sentence to the other, while the applause and laughter wake up the walls that way.

“We dreamed of this moment since the 14th of march, welcomes Jean-Marc Dumontet, owner of the theatre in which, as soon as the curtain fell on this unique representation, closes its doors again. We had to reopen, if only for the symbol, but we can’t restart the season now.

Consultations poetic in the Theatre of the City

In another register, two steps from the Champs-Élysées, the words have also come back to the place that was their own. On the set of Space-Cardin where the City Theatre was home for the rehabilitation of his room, the word resonates with an acuity burning. The scaffold The witches of Salemthe last piece played here before, abrupt withdrawal in march, has not moved. It is the setting for Hold Lyricsthe show staged by Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota, the director of the place, as soon as the announcement of a possible resumption of the representations. Hold Lyrics draws its material from reports of the 6 000 consultations poetic conducted over the phone during and after the containment by the actors in the Theatre of the City and a quarantine of the other, recruited for the occasion, with men and women of all ages, teens, children, confined, sick, bereaved, caregivers…

The actors have taken the pulse of humanity as projected in a race outside the norm. This evening, re-opening, in front of an assembly of dispersed and hidden, they weave the scraps of life, is available in the texts and poems that they have offered to their “patients” instead of a balm. Words cascading in three tables an hour, like to drink this emptiness and this silence before. “The theatres had never closed, even during the war, remember Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota. We could not resume as if nothing had happened. We needed a ritual and thus came the idea of a Vigil : we must remember that it is happened something terrible, but also to celebrate life.

The public responds to this

In a few days, the team of the theatre has prepared this artistic marathon of 48 hours. “It’s like a renewal after the mourning that we experienced at the closing of the theatres, entrust Julie, a young actress of the troupe. Be in front of a room half filled is strange, but we play for those who are there and we feel the force of their presence, their listening. “At the end of the room, two spectators in the front row jump out of their seats and fill their frenetic applause the absences that surround each block of chairs, half of which remained to be ordered. “What a thrill to find the actors, enthuses one of them. I also wanted to show them my solidarity.

As the night advances, the universe intersect – Ionesco, Dante — and the public eve, irreducible, until the dawn. “I wasn’t worried, I knew that people would come, ensures Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota, who is surprised that his theater is one of the few to open its doors for the summer. For three months, the actors were silent, the great characters, Hamlet, Antigone, also… A society can not live without this word there. We have to be there. “To protect a flame fragile and flickering but alive and well.

The IMF downgraded the economic Outlook for Russia :: Economy :: RBC

The IMF also downgraded its forecast on the global economy. The Fund believes that in 2020, the decline will be 4.9%, whereas in April, the organization assumed a decline of only 3%. “Pandemic COVID-19 had a negative impact on the activities [во всем мире] in the first half of 2020 than expected, and recovery is expected to be more gradual than projected before,” reads the IMF report.

According to the organization, in 2021 the world will expect economic growth at 5.4%, but this still will not be enough to restore the economy to pre-crisis levels. According to IMF estimates, in 2021 the world’s GDP will be 6.5% lower than the figures of January 2020 (before the global spread of the virus).

The Ministry of economic development reported a fall in GDP may double-digit pace

The total losses of the world economy in 2020 will be $12.5 trillion, estimated at the IMF. IMF chief economist Gita Gopinath during the presentation of the report said that the lowest point of the fall of the world economy passed in the second quarter, we began the restoration. However, she refused to define it as a V, U or L-shaped, referring to high uncertainty of the forecast. According to her, the possible second wave of the incidence of coronavirus until you find a medical solution to the problem.

Global government debt will rise in 2020 to a record high of 101.5% of world GDP (an increase of 18.7 percentage points over last year), the report of the IMF.

The total volume of announced budgetary support in the world is estimated at $11 trillion, the report said. Half of this amount ($5.4 trillion) are measures to increase expenditure or abandonment of revenue (e.g. due to tax exemptions) — they directly increase fiscal deficits.

Of the countries represented in the IMF report, to avoid the fall of the economy in 2020, only China, follows from the document. The IMF predicted China’s growth at the 1% level. The most significant drop is waiting Italy (12,8%), Spain (12,8%) France (12.5 percent), the UK (10.2 per cent) and Mexico (10.5 percent).


experts explain why obesity “helps” coronavirus

– Has long been known that overweight people have lowered immunity, says head of the Department of endocrinology of the medical faculty Russian national research medical University. N. And. Pirogov Tatiana Demidova. Research and practice show that in these patients increases the risk of atherosclerosis sharply increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and heart failure. Increased risk of endocrinological, oncological diseases, joint diseases, psychological disorders.

Epidemic COVID has added another item to the list of high threats to people who are overweight. It turned out that when infected with coronavirus patients with obesity more often require hospitalization, fall into the ICU, on the ventilator (artificial lung ventilation). Alas, is growing and the risk of death.

– If the original messages from China on the most severe cases COVID it was mainly about the older people with severe chronic diseases, according to the latest data from Europe and USA the risk group includes people with obesity – says Tatiana Demidova.


In what diseases most often develop complications due to coronavirus

90% of patients admitted with severe COVID-19 US hospitals, were the following comorbidities:

– hypertension — 49.7%,and

– obesity or 48.3%,

– chronic lung disease — 34,6%,

– diabetes type 2 diabetes was 28.3%,

– cardiovascular disease — 27,8%.

Thus, obesity is second among the States in which CouId be severe.


Visceral adipose tissue, that is, one that is in the abdomen, is, in fact, highly individual body, experts explain. This body affects the immune, endocrine system and metabolism in the body as a whole.

– People who are overweight fat cells are much larger. So, is synthesized in much more of various hormones and inflammatory cells. Among them, including interleukin-6, interleukin-1, tumor necrosis factor, and others, – says Tatiana Demidova. Often in the body, there is a creeping inflammation.

At the same time observed that many viral infections and especially COVID-19 amplify the effects cytokines and lead to the extension of the generalization of inflammation. “It was proved that adipose tissue serves as a reservoir for some viruses, such as influenza, HIV and cytomegalovirus. Also, according to the latest data, it can be activated and coronavirus,” adds Demidov.


Studies have shown one more feature of coronavirus. As it turned out, he is able to spread rapidly in adipose tissue surrounding internal organs – lungs, liver, kidneys, heart, etc. because Of this, developing severe damage to these vital organs and people with excess weight, excess amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of death from multiple organ failure.

There is evidence that such patients are also unable to stay longer carriers of the virus, require longer hospital stay and isolation, said Tatyana Demidova.


There is evidence and that not less than one-third of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in China, European countries and the United States, the infection resulted in damage of the pancreas. This was confirmed by elevated enzymes amylase and lipase, and glucose levels in the blood plasma.

– This is a very disturbing circumstance. Since we talking about high risk of developing diabetes type 2 diabetes in people with the original obesity after recovery from infection, says Dr. Demidov.

It is not excluded that after the break the pace of the epidemic COVID, we will see a worldwide surge in the incidence of diabetes, experts say.

So now, when the opportunity walks, sports, seasonal ripe fruits and vegetables rich in fiber, doctors suggest the obese individuals to exert their maximum effort for getting rid of really dangerous extra pounds.

forty days to adopt the plan of stimulus of the EU

European leaders have begun, Friday, 19 June, a race against the clock to reach agreement before the end of July on a recovery plan post-coronavirus massive. After several summits in video-conference since march, the heads of State and government are expected to meet in Brussels in mid-July. And no one excludes the possibility of a final meeting is then required before the summer break the month of August to reach an agreement.

Many antagonisms were recognized on Friday, during the round table conducted by video conferencing. The goal is, it is true, very ambitious. Twenty-Seven are invited to comment on a package of more than 1,800 billion euros to be spent during the period 2021-2027.

It includes, on the one hand, the economic recovery plan in the amount of 750 billion euros, proposed by the european Commission to support countries, regions and sectors in difficulty after the pandemic of the Covid-19 ; on the other hand, the multi-annual financial framework, for the time being set at 1 to 100 billion euros, which provides for EU spending over the seven years for common policies such as the CAP, the european regional development fund, and new projects such as the european Fund of defence.

→ European economic recovery Plan, mode of employment

The unanimity of the Twenty-Seven being required on the budget issues, the difficulty to agree is increased by the proposal of the Commission to break the taboo of a common debt. In the recovery plan, which aims to go out collectively to the countries of the EU of a historic recession, would be financed by a loan made by the Commission on behalf of the european Union on the financial markets. A third party would then be made available to States most affected by the crisis in the form of loans and two-thirds would be paid in the form of direct assistance or subsidy.

The loan could then be repaid from own resources of the european Union that would be created by then, for example, a carbon tax at the borders, or a tax on the giants of the digital world.

Significant differences

The 27, however, must overcome major differences, whether it be the amount of the plan, its duration, the balance between loans and grants, criteria for the distribution of aid, as well as the delicate issue of a “conditionality “that is to say the counterparty (e.g. reforms) required to a State in exchange for these funds.

An agreement would mark a major step in the european construction. These advances towards a budgetary solidarity between member States have been permitted by a franco-German agreement sealed by Emmanuel Macron and German chancellor Angela Merkel on may 18.

But four countries there is still strong reluctance. The netherlands, Austria, Sweden, and Denmark, – the” four frugal “- are net contributors to the eu budget – they pay more than they receive – and their opinions are often annoyed by the lack of structural reforms undertaken in recent years in some countries of southern Europe.

These countries will seek in the coming weeks to reduce the amount of the recovery plan, to reduce the “subsidies” and increase the loan conditionality. Some will also require an extension of their rebate budget in the framework of the multiannual financial Framework – a drawback inherited from the british rebate, and which is intended to compensate for the fact that they are little concerned by some of the community policies.

The ambition of Angela Merkel

Friday night, the Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte has thus tempered the prospect of a final agreement to be twenty-seven on the recovery plan in July. ” It is uncertain that it will be finalized at that time “, he commented, without excluding that other tops are needed” during the summer or beyond “. The austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz has warned against a perpetuation of the debt : the assistance provided should be “one-off “ and “time-limited “, he insisted.

“There is an emerging consensus, which is very positive, but it’s also important not to under-estimate the difficulties “, a summary of her side the president of the european Council, Charles Michel, leader of the orchestra of the negotiation process. The latter must now start bilateral consultations with the member States to present, probably before the end of June, a revised proposal of this plan.

Angela Merkel, who will play a major role in the negotiations, since Germany will assume from 1 July, the presidency turn of the european council of ministers, welcomed the principle of a debt common or “challenged by person “. “This is not an exaggeration to say that we are facing the greatest economic challenge in the history of the european Union “, she insisted.

“Europe must be at the height of the Story (…) Find an agreement of 27 in July ! “she said Emmanuel Macron on Twitter.

Warm up lap on the european recovery post-Covid

► What place does this top in the agenda of the negotiations ?

The German chancellor Angela Merkel, whose country will take over the rotating presidency of the EU 1er July, has begun a countdown meeting, Thursday, June 18, deputies of the Bundestag. The Europeans, she said, should agree on their plan of recovery post-Covid by the end of July, “before the summer break “ of the european institutions, so as to allow time for national parliaments to ratify the new EU financial framework “by the end of the year “.

The european Council by videoconference June 19, will not be the time of the decisions, but the opportunity of a “first exchange “has warned Angela Merkel. Even the sound of a bell at the Elysée palace : “This is a warm up lap necessary to take knowledge of the position the detailed of each “says-it. Paris and Berlin expect more of a physical encounter in Brussels between heads of State, in the first fortnight of July. To move forward, “the discussions have need of private conversations and of meetings of the hallway “says a source élyséenne.

► What are the obstacles to be overcome ?

The franco-German initiative recovery the 27 may by the president of the Commission, Ursula von der Leyen offers to share 500 billion euros of debt at european level transferred to the countries most affected by the crisis. This proposal, unprecedented in the history of the EU and requires unanimity to be adopted. For the time being, the four so-called “frugal” (the netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Austria) categorically refuse. The only approach to “healthy” is to use the money borrowed by the EU for “convert loans to those who really need it, on the best terms possible “they recalled, Thursday, June 17, in a letter to the Financial Times.

→ TO READ. European recovery Plan : what are the “four frugal” ?

The Visegrad group (Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia) challenges him, the key distribution of beneficiaries. Thursday, June 11, the leaders of these countries, mask health on the face, gathered at the castle of Lednice, in the Czech Republic, to request a distribution “fair “ of the stimulus funds. For their part, the main beneficiaries of the plan, as expected, Italy (173 billion euros) and Spain (141 billion), do not want subsidies to be the opportunity of a supervision humiliating, such as during the debt crisis of the euro area in 2010.

► What are the levers of negotiation ?

The franco-German couple would like to convince the “frugal” that it is in their interest to keep the countries of the south afloat, to preserve their economy highly dependent on exports. It will have to find something else. “There are margins for negotiation on the issue of the discount “, we recognize the Élysée palace. These four countries have in common that they have obtained, on the british model, discounts on their contribution to eu finances, the fact that they are benefiting less than others (France in particular) of the funds of the common agricultural policy (37 % of the eu budget).

Paris and Berlin would like to avoid that negotiations are returning to crop on the 500 billion, that are deemed “necessary “, and prefer to enter into a discussion on the criteria for the awarding of the money. The distribution key, it is true, is based on “variables before the crisis “and “countries on the health development plan at the economic level “be , grants to the Elysée palace. As for the payments, Paris has stated that they would not be conditioned to “audits nit-picky “ but to “reform plans “ on the basis of the “trust “.


what is the real issue for catholics ?

Due to a global pandemic, we are experiencing a time of totally unprecedented and a common experience of magnitude universal. For several weeks, we have all been deprived of the most precious, freedom. We even have experience with this deprivation with a docility almost eerily, the health seeming to now the horizon indépassable to lives confined in the dead-ends of consumerism.

This loss of freedom has affected all the realities of the society. It has also been given to the religions. The freedom of public worship has been reduced, limited to the strict necessary. In France, this area is sensitive and over-determined by our particular history in the past two centuries. In the field of religion and cults, the tensions rise quickly, the suspicion is almost permanent.

However, it should be noted that our country has benefited from a similar scheme to that of neighbouring countries such as Germany or Italy. Even more, the churches were only among the establishments receiving the public (ERP) open during the time of confinement. We could gather, celebrate the funeral. It should be remembered that the Holy Father presided at a prayer time simple and profound about a place St-Pierre empty ? That St Peter’s basilica has been reopened to the public for a few years, just like the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem ?

An action before the Council of State has enabled it to gain a few days on the calendar

The inability to celebrate publicly the cult has been a painful lack. Lack of the eucharistic body to the faithful ; the lack of the ecclesial body to the celebrants. When déconfinement, the conference of bishops, in regular link with the public authorities, and in spite of the tensions and negotiations inevitable on the occasion of a negotiation calendar on a delicate subject, prepared to be able to celebrate again with the approach of Pentecost.

Then came an action before the Council of State for a restoration of freedom of worship. The great interest of this initiative is to have given us a judgment of said Board, very important about worship. Another interest, especially a symbolic one : it has enabled it to gain a few days on the calendar, which was trading already.

One can then wonder about the effects of this action. It has, of course, product satisfaction is quite general. The sign given by Jesus in communion with Him and among the baptized was to be accessible again. But this sign of communion is, paradoxically, become the pattern of behaviours that challenge. Satisfaction has sometimes become immodestie, or even disdain, especially on social networks. At the beginning of Lent, Jesus called on us yet for the conversion, and the quiet and modest for the joy of the Father. And Pentecost has reminded us of the event authentic of the Spirit, among others, by the peace, the gentleness, the kindness. Some analysts observe that this action sign the marginalization of the catholic Church in society. When one uses methods of trade unions or political parties, it agrees in a certain way to be a (1).

To face death in solitude

But most of all, you may wonder about the issues of the mobilization of energy for the return of the cult and the little investment in what could seem to be an issue far more fundamental. Indeed, what is fasting, the eucharist next to the drama of so many people who, in spite of the dedication of the caregivers, have had to face death in solitude, without the support of their family, their Church, in hospitals, long-term care Facility ? What is the dehumanization of the death so that the way of treating the dead is one of the major signs that founds and characterizes humanity ? The ” whole health “, legitimized by a scientific discourse and technocratic which we are able to observe the wanderings, becomes the horizon indépassable of the new humanity that allows the restriction of freedoms and basic human rights ?

On this question of death, ” fly “, a person to excite social networks, person to mobilize lawyers, little world, evoking the abandonment of those who have gone without noise. If we do not want a new decommissioning of humanity, does it not there a real cause to defend ?


Recovery Plan, Germany puts the turbo

Germany asserts itself, once more, as the country’s engine of the european Union. The Face of the crisis of the coronavirus, the first european economy has decided to put the turbo in, announcing before all the world, on 3 June, an ambitious recovery plan which should provoke the envy of its neighbours, starting with France.

→ TO READ. Paris and Berlin are erected in engines of the european response to the Covid-19

“This is a major scheme, with 130 billion euros over two years, the objective of which is to stimulate the demand and supply, but also to modernize the German economy, especially its auto industry which was already suffering before the crisis “says Philippe Vilas-Boas, the Credit agricole SA.

Plan all-round

Harshly negotiated between the members of the government coalition – the conservative CDU-CSU and the social democrats of the SPD, this plan, which takes into 15 pages declines 57 measures on all fronts that we can classify in two parts.

An initial budget of 80 billion euros is intended to provide immediate support to households and businesses. The most striking is a reduction of the tax on the value added tax (VAT) which will rise from 19 % to 16 % for the standard rate and from 7% to 5 % for the reduced rate from 1 July until the end of 2020.

“After the post of 25 billion euros in aid for small and medium-sized enterprises, this temporary lowering of the VAT is the most significant expense of the plan, since it will represent a loss of revenue for the federal State of the order of 20 billion “says Philippe Vilas-Boas.

To boost the purchasing power of the Germans and boost consumption, Berlin is also expected to reduce the electricity bills of households of 11 billion euros and to pay families a bonus of € 300 per child, which will cost a little more than 4.3 billion euros in the budget.

Prepare the reconversion of the industry

“The second component of the plan provides for a package of 50 billion euros of investment in transport, digital and health to prepare the reconversion of the industry “adds Charles-Henri Colombier, of the institute Rexecode.

Nearly 9 billion euros should be injected into a programme of development of the hydrogen sector, which could make Germany the number one in the world of this “clean” energy. Similarly, 7 billion euros will be devoted to the promotion of the electric car to accelerate the transition to a automotive sector crucial to the economy of the country.

“In total, the eur 180 billion committed over 18 months, or 4% of gross domestic product (GDP) of the country, should allow Germany to gain a point of additional growth in 2020 and by 0.5% in 2021, according to the forecasts of the Bundesbank “, says Charles-Henri Colombier. A valuable acquis as the country is expected to experience a contraction of its GDP of around 6 % this year due to the shock of the sars coronavirus.

What give ideas to other european countries ? At Bercy, we board again on the recovery plan promised, but one is not decided to blindly follow the German model. “The introduction of a VAT at a reduced rate in the restoration in 2009 has shown that such a decline was not necessarily reflected in the pricesays one to the ministry of the economy. In addition, the devices bit targeted can receive imported goods. “

A plan habs more modest

It is true that Germany does not have this problem because its trade balance is largely in surplus, unlike that of France. “Well, Paris will be difficult to align in the same amounts as Berlin, for its recovery since its fiscal margin of manoeuvre is much reduced “adds Philip Vilas-Boas.

→ TO READ. Aerospace : a support plan of 15 billion euros for the sector

Like many european countries, Germany has spent without counting to deal with the coronavirus, until they renounce the policy of austerity, which is his trademark. But she’d be in a much better position than its partners. “Before the crisis, the budget German was in surplus, and its debt does not exceed 60 % of GDP. After this crisis, the ratio debt-to-GDP should not exceed 75 %, a comfortable level “, says Charles-Henri Colombier.

In comparison, the public deficit French should reach the unprecedented step of 11.4% of GDP at the end of the year, while the debt could reach 120 % of GDP. Baseline data that suggests a recovery plan, with the colours of a much more modest.


For travel agencies and christian, the recovery is expected

The fear, the main enemy of the travel agencies christian. She has so been distilled in the minds of the people that it takes a certain time for it to dissipate “notes Didier Jeffredo, founder and CEO of the agency, Bipel, who works exclusively for the Church and for which the destinations of Lourdes, Rome and the holy Land represent more than 35 % of the activity.

This fear prevents potential customers of ” projecting “adds father Jacky-Marie Lhermitte, a priest of the diocese of Rouen and president of the national Association of directors of pilgrimage (ANDDP) who works under the responsibility of the Commission for the pastoral liturgical and sacramental of the catholic bishops ‘ Conference of France (CEF).

Fear of the pilgrims, the uncertainties of the shrines

And this, more especially, that pilgrimages and trips organised by the dioceses and parishes tend to attract rather older people. Those who, for the past three months, are considered “people at risk .

“Even the pilgrimages are planned for the end of August, do not fill “laments the father Lhermitte, aware that this fear of the pilgrims, add to the uncertainty of the sanctuaries that have to wait for June 22 – announcements and government on phase 3 of the déconfinement – to find out if the health measures will be lifted. The current constraints make it very difficult to host groups in places of worship , recognizes the president of the ANDDP by citing the example of Lourdes, where the fact of distanciations imposed, only the grotto and the Rosary basilica are accessible to groups.

Travel to France have the odds

Another difficulty : the lack of visibility on the recovery of the airlines. The flights are not yet reopened, but we should see a recovery within fifteen days , hope Laurent Guillon-Verne, director of Terralto, who, like his brothers, works mainly with Italy, Spain, Portugal, Israel, Jordan or Lebanon… “When the borders will re-open and that flights will resume, probably around June 15 for Europe and then in early July for the international, then the people will again want to leave. “

So, lack of ability to project themselves abroad, potential customers opt for France. Thus, at the Ictus-Travel, where, via the Internet, it was registered “thirty listings since may 11, on offers general public, finds director Thierry Sanson, “it is especially travel to the Vendée, marches in Britain and in the causses, or hiking on the paths of Saint-Jacques. “

Late for the pilgrimages of autumn

The tailor-made offers to the dioceses and parishes do not leave yet “, continues Thierry Sanson, worrying about, like his colleagues, of the delay to start and complete the travels and pilgrimages of the fall. “The hardest part for us is that the proposals in October, which would normally fill the last two months and this is not the case, full Laurent Guillon-Verne. Even if we pass the pubs, the people have not yet head to it. “

However, it is in this moment that the agencies must engage firmly with the airlines and hotels for their proposals in the autumn. If customers take their decision after July, it will be too late for us “insists Laurent Guillon-Verne, who believes that travel agencies christian go “losing six months, or more, since the months after September are not going to fill or very difficult . Between 70% and 80% of their annual turnover.

In fact, several tour operators, christians have made an application for a loan guaranteed by the State, hoping to be able to pay it back within a year. “We have cash sufficient to hold nine or ten months, but if the losses at the end of the year are too huge, it may be necessary to dismiss it could be Thierry Sanson. “We are not at the verge of bankruptcyadds Didier Jeffredo, but this attack is really very severe.


The resumption of football in Germany, test for any professional sport

The thing will not happen in France, where the government has decided the definitive cessation of the sporting season 2019-2020 due to the epidemic of covid-19. But in Germany, the football championship, which was suspended on 31 march, takes up this Saturday, may 16.

Risky and not very popular – 56 per cent of Germans were opposed, according to a poll reported by AFP, this recovery will be a test and may influence the decisions of the other three major european leagues (England, Italy, Spain), who are still considering to finish the season.

Camera and hard rules

The competition is scheduled to conclude on 27 June. Provided that the possible quarantine of clubs, in ill cases of the coronavirus, is not obliged to postpone matches. The recovery was desired by the Bundesliga for sporting purposes, but primarily economic : the broadcast of the meetings will report to the club of 300 million rights tv, allowing some of them to avoid bankruptcy.

To resume, the German clubs have agreed to submit to regular testing, and precautions drastic on the field : no pre-match protocol, no effusions of the collective to celebrate the goals… And most importantly, no audience. The meetings will be held in fact behind closed doors, with a maximum of 300 people are allowed in the stadium, including the players, referees, journalists and cameramen. A test for the fans and for the players, accustomed to the fervor of public well-furnished, in a country where the average attendance in the stadiums amounted to nearly 45 000 spectators, the double of France.

“The world looks to us “

The recovery in germany, marked by the prestigious “derby of the Ruhr’ between Borussia Dortmund to his rival Schalke 04, will in any case be scrutinized by the whole of Europe sports. It will be a test to see if the professional sports may or may not revive in spite of the virus. “We carry a responsibility huge “, was recognized on Friday, may 15, the CEO of Borussia Dortmund Hans-Joachim Watzke. “The whole world now looks towards us “, abounded, the coach of Bayern Munich, Hansi Flick. “It may be a signal to all other leagues and it may allow the sport to resume everywhere (…). We have a function example very important. “
