The president of the medical commission of establishment of the Public assistance – Hospitals of Paris (AP-HP), fears that a “sanitary tsunami” will strike the country.
L’Express: Do you think that Paris will experience the peak of the epidemic this week?
Rémi Salomon: We are witnessing an increase in cases since the weekend of March 21 and 22, but epidemiologists predict this peak around mid-April in Ile-de-France, which leaves us looking forward to long, difficult weeks for caregivers as for the population. We are facing an unprecedented catastrophe of which I only became aware in February with its development in Italy. We will experience the same situation. The Grand Est is hit hard, and now it’s the turn of the Paris region. Tomorrow, other big cities will follow. You have to prepare for it.
