In this context, Jean-François Delfraissy calls for “
returning to barrier measures
” such as washing hands and wearing a mask, including outdoors, because of the contagiousness of the variant.
Vaccinated for several weeks, he "
continues to wear the mask
The professor fears 50,000 new daily contaminations in early August on average.
According to him, “
there is no quick fix
” to the Delta variant.
In recent days, clusters have been detected in nightclubs, in Bordeaux and elsewhere in Europe. Jean-François Delfraissy therefore called for caution in these places. If the young people validate the health pass by being vaccinated or with a negative PCR test, “going
to a disco is possible
” but “
we are careful
”, he recalls.
The doctor does not question the reopening of nightclubs. "
We could have closed or reopened everything, that would not have changed anything
", because of the peculiarities of the Delta virus. The question, according to him, is to know "
up to what point
" one should go in these reopenings (which gauges? Which places? Which events?). For him, the sanitary pass, of which he validates the principle and the application, will help us “
even if it is not 100% effective
” in preventing transmission and contamination.
