Sporting a compulsory masks: "Ready a fortnight extra is an excessive amount of!"

He’s on the origin of the tribune “Masked however at giant! », Revealed on Sunday July 12 in our columns. With fifteen famend medical doctors, Antoine Pelissolo, psychiatrist at Henri-Mondor hospital, in Créteil (Val-de-Marne), urged the federal government to make the sporting of masks obligatory in enclosed public areas, a needed bulwark in opposition to a rebound of the epidemic. The measure has simply been introduced by Emmanuel Macron, through the interview granted on the event of July 14.

The president has simply introduced the sporting of the necessary masks in public locations closed by August 1. It’s, partially, due to you.

ANTOINE PELISSOLO. Allow us to say that our platform has brought about an consciousness and that the query of obligation in a short time discovered itself on the coronary heart of public debate. The federal government would have ended up taking this measure, however right here issues accelerated. That is the end result we needed to attain!

Is the mission achieved?

Certainly, this is excellent information. However there’s a draw back, it’s this date of August 1. It’s not very clear and we don’t actually perceive the rationale for this postponement. Making use of this measure is pressing. We all know that at any time, there could be a resurgence of the epidemic. Misplaced time is dangerous. Ready a fortnight extra is an excessive amount of. With the Covid-19, we're all the time just a little not on time. However the truth that the president speaks of the masks and recommends it in all enclosed public locations will, we hope, have a good response within the inhabitants. After the publication of our discussion board, we acquired a whole lot of optimistic suggestions. For essentially the most half, individuals are for even when, paradoxically, they put on it much less and fewer. This announcement will enable to discover a collective motivation.

What sorts of masks do you have to put on?

Ideally, surgical procedure. These are essentially the most appropriate. We are able to additionally put on masks for most of the people, in cloth, offered that they meet the requirements. We should take note of these now we have tinkered with us throughout confinement and be certain that they defend properly. It’s a very efficient precautionary answer whereas ready for the vaccine. And we might should put on it for a very long time. It’s a must to put together for it.

The president stated: "I like to recommend to all our fellow residents to put on it as a lot as potential outdoors and a fortiori in a closed place". On the street, is it additionally helpful?

The chance is way decrease than in a closed place. Not too long ago, the World Well being Group stated that the virus might be transmitted by the air. In ventilated locations, there are drafts, contamination is tougher. Furthermore, we are able to clearly see that the principle clusters are declared in household properties or through the evangelist gathering in Mulhouse. Definitely, it could be needed in sure occasions when you end up in a crowded crowd. However don’t discourage individuals with overly restrictive suggestions. It’s higher to be clear.

Is the scenario worrying in France?

Luckily, the indices are very low, however the variety of clusters is growing, that is the case in Mayenne. Within the Paris area, very affected by the epidemic, there was, for 2 weeks, a rise in consultations for Covid-19 and optimistic exams. The virus fee in wastewater has elevated, making it potential to detect a low-noise restart of the epidemic. Lastly, the variety of consultations with SOS Docs is larger than a fortnight in the past. For those who put on the masks, maintain your distance and wash your fingers properly, barrier gestures work. I had Covid-19 myself in April and managed to not go it on to my spouse and kids. These measures make sense.

If Emmanuel Macron spoke of masks, he completely omitted to say the Ségur de la santé. Does that shock you?

Sure, not a phrase, it's disappointing! The query of the hospital is crucial and the conclusions of the Ségur blended. The revaluation of wages of 180 euros for all workers is progress, even when the nurses, particularly, anticipated 300 euros month-to-month. Which implies it is going to nonetheless be tough to recruit. In his earlier speeches, Emmanuel Macron had, nevertheless, made very sturdy statements on the significance of reorganizing the hospital. Turning the web page so shortly is a disgrace. To make use of the president's phrases, the highway has solely been midway finished.
