Hello,

To discover

  • Covid-19: vaccination as the only remedy

People in the cafes, inside, outside, the colleague passing by in the cafeteria, a plane ticket reserved for this summer ... Wouldn't that look like life before?

On

June 9

, a new stage of deconfinement was taken.

The indicators did not play the spoilsport and still show a

decline in the epidemic

.

However, we must remain vigilant and beware of the

fourth wave.

She might surprise us in the fall.

And this virus which has changed our lives so much, will we one day know its origin?

The trail of the accidental leak of

the Chinese laboratory

in Wuhan is relaunched.

Good reading,

Camille Lestienne, journalist at

Le Figaro

Back to life before.

We had missed this life so much!

», Exclaimed yesterday on Twitter Emmanuel Macron.

Like the President of the Republic, the French have returned to what looks like a pre-November daily on June 9.

However, restrictions remain and will be lifted entirely on June 30th.

First of all, the curfew is maintained but moved back to 11 p.m.

Enough to allow restaurants and bars to find their customers while the interior rooms reopen with a 50% gauge.

"Reservations are high and some addresses are already full",

welcomes a representative of the profession. Those who rather think about preparing their body for the test of the swimsuit, can once again push the doors of the sports halls or rediscover the joys of chlorine and footbaths of indoor swimming pools.

Cinemas and theaters are also benefiting from the 11 p.m. curfew and a 50-65% increase in gauges as amusement parks are slowly reopening.

Finally, for entry into stadiums and concert halls hosting events for more than 1,000 spectators, the health pass comes into effect.

Will it concern discos?

It would be "

unlikely

", assures a professional of the sector still awaiting a reopening date.

July 2 could spell the end of the ordeal for establishments that have been closed for more than fifteen months.

Back to the office.

June 9 also marks the reunion with colleagues. Employees are invited to gradually return to the office. No rule set by the government but the general trend in companies is

"two or three days of teleworking

", notes the vice-president of the CPME. Nothing revolutionary when many of them had already relaxed their efforts before the official date. Teleworking that companies should perpetuate through agreements with unions, because shying away from this mode of organization which has become customary could "outdated" their image, according to an expert. According to the National Association of HRDs (ANDRH), employees have already moved and are putting their employer "in

front of a fait accompli

While candidates residing in the provinces no longer hesitate to apply for positions in the Paris region without intending to settle there.

"

The individual should not take precedence over the collective,

" warns Audrey Richard, the president of the association.

In the meantime, corporate restaurants are preparing to resume their activity with a lean protocol.

Employees will now be able to have lunch with six around a table.

Cross the borders.

Returning to the life before also means leaving. And for the vaccinated, it is possible outside Europe since Wednesday without compelling reasons for a number of countries classified according to the circulation of the virus. In theory because, in fact, the countries themselves can prohibit their access to French tourists. This is for example the case of Australia or Japan. “

Reciprocity is not a prerequisite nor a prerequisite

“, Admitted last week during a press point the Secretary of State for Tourism.

For foreigners wishing to enter France, a division into three zones is also defined.

Vaccine or PCR tests, for each of the groups of countries specific rules.

While tour operators can rejoice in the resumption of activity, the compulsory reimbursement in September of reserved trips not taken will weigh heavily on their cash flow.

1.6 billion assets are currently pending according to the Professional Association for Solidarity in Tourism (APST), which fears a cascade of travel agency failures.

2. Where is the epidemic?

It is the recession.

No bad news as the country enters its third phase of deconfinement. Epidemiological indicators are still green with a continuous decline in hospitalizations. The symbolic threshold of 5,000 cases per day should even be reached quickly. However, it is not a question of claiming victory. The incidence rate, which is below 100 in most departments, is on the rise in several of them. The alert was given in the Landes where 31 cases of contamination with the Delta variant were reported. For Professor Jean-François Delfraissy, the summer "

should pass in rather satisfactory conditions

". The Chairman of the Scientific Council, however, expects the epidemic to resume in the fall: "

It will be a recovery, we can call it 4th wave, but it will be very different from the first waves, because we will have the vaccination

”, he assured Tuesday at the microphone of RTL.

How will it be different, wanted to verify Alexis Feertchak du

Figaro

.

The vaccine will protect us unless we reach the vaccination glass ceiling.

And what about the possible new variants?

Enough to make the modeling exercise very complex.

The numbers to remember

  • 2326 patients in critical care (-68 since the day before)

  • 13,526 hospitalized patients (-458 since the day before)

  • 5557 new cases detected in 24 hours

  • 65 deaths in 24 hours

3. Update on vaccination

The goal of 30 million French people first-vaccinated could be reached on June 13.

STEPHANE MAHE / REUTERS

  • 29 million

    people (43.4% of the total population and 55.3% of the adult population) received a first dose.

  • 13 million

    people vaccinated (i.e. 19.5% of the total population and 24.9% of the adult population)

  • 14.7 million

    people have a full vaccination schedule

Source: Public Health France as of June 9

The objective of 30 million

first-time vaccinated will be "

met with a few days in advance,

" said Gabriel Attal, the government spokesman. Either before June 15. On this date, adolescents over 12 years of age can be vaccinated. A decision that the National Ethics Committee (CCNE) considers too fast. "

Is it ethical to make minors bear the responsibility, in terms of collective benefit, for refusing vaccination (or the difficulty of accessing it) for a part of the adult population?"

“Asks the CCNE, which points to the limited benefit of vaccination for children.

Especially since the doses are necessary for other audiences.

Severely immunocompromised people, for example, may need a fourth dose when a third is already recommended.

4. The virus that escaped from a Chinese laboratory?

The hypothesis of an accidental leak of the virus from the Wuhan virology laboratory is again explored.

THOMAS PETER / REUTERS

Like a boomerang.

A laboratory leak, at this stage, is the only hypothesis that makes sense,”

says

Figaro

David Asher, former director of the State Department's investigation into the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic. "

On January 15, our investigation revealed that several employees of the Wuhan Institute of Virology fell very ill in early November 2019, with symptoms resembling those of influenza or Covid,

" he says. while the trail of the leak of the Chinese laboratory has been relaunched by US President Joe Biden. Why had this hypothesis already formulated at the start of the epidemic been ruled out? For several reasons, decrypts Adrien Jaulmes, Washington correspondent of

Figaro

.

The natural origin seemed obvious and similar to that of other epidemics.

It was then categorically rejected by a study of the very serious

Lancet

while being claimed by a Donald Trump with often fanciful and contradictory statements.

In the meantime, Dr. Fauci, Joe Biden's health adviser, is in the hot seat for having refused this lead for too long.

5. The quote

25% of departments have more than 2.5 full-time equivalents vacant and / or more than 30% of their medical vacancy table.

Report of the College of Teachers of Intensive Resuscitation Medicine

One or two doctors are missing in each intensive care unit in France.

This is the observation of professionals drawn up in the report of the College of Teachers of Intensive Resuscitation Medicine that

Le Figaro

published on June 4 exclusively.

As a result, the caregivers follow up on too frequent a call and become exhausted.

A systemic dysfunction that the Covid crisis has only revealed to the general public.

In question, too small a number of intern positions opened each year by the ministry.

An overload of “

routine

” work which also affects nurses.

“E

ach year, 20 to 30% of the nursing workforce leaves the services,

” notes a doctor.

6. The deconfinement schedule

France is still under

curfew, although

at a later time.

, under penalty of a fine of 135 euros.
