Since the passage of the France-stage 3 of the epidemic, the measures related to the Covid-19 multiply in order to fight the pandemic that is now threatening the four corners of the world. With more than 148 death and 6.633 confirmed cases in the country, the government regulations are becoming more stringent. Now, all the public places “non-essential” are closed to “mitigate the effects of the epidemic wave” and the authorities urge the population to follow the guidelines set forth to protect themselves and their loved ones. But, as pointed out Gilles Pialoux, head of department of infectious diseases at the hospital Tenon, the population seems not to be aware of the hazards of certain high-risk behaviours in the face of the sars coronavirus. His criticism has been relayed by BFM TV.
“We had enough of the incivility of the health of French”, says the doctor on the shelf television. The object of its indignation ? “People who rush, confined in the stations, that push to get on the trains, there are a 1000 who has the mask. It is mind-blowing of in-culture and hygiene”, claimed Gilles Pialoux, which considers that the population does not act as a result of the measures recommended.
“This must be a call to responsibility”
In a second extract in his interview with Jean-Jacques Bourdin, the expert emphasizes the importance of being responsible in this situation of crisis. After having realized that the self-containment had resulted in failure, “now, it’s the forced confinement, and it is necessary that people respect,” continues the professor.
Since this Sunday, march 15, only pharmacies, banks, food shops, a petrol station or office of tobacco have permission to open in France. It is, therefore, closed to the bars, restaurants, cinemas and discos, in accordance with the guidelines set out by Edouard Philippe. Measures such as limitation of travel, and telework have also been strengthened.
