The Minister of Health spoke yesterday about the epidemic. He recalled that it was not timely to deconfin the country, because the decline in hospital pressure would take time.
At the same time, he announced that nursing home staff would now be tested every week. A necessary measure where the majority of clusters in our regions are located in nursing homes.
This is the case in Charente-Maritime, where a new cluster was detected on Thursday 19 November. 12 residents and three caregivers tested positive in the nursing home in Bourcefranc-le-Chapus. It is a substitute caregiver who would have brought the virus within the establishment.
