While the World Health Organization (WHO) announced on Friday May 5 the lifting of the maximum level of global alert for Covid-19, the government calls on the French to “stay alert” in the face of the virus “always circulating” in the country, warned, Saturday, May 6, the Minister Delegate for Health, Agnès Firmin-Le Bodo, on France info.

“This is good news which should also force us to remain vigilant”, estimated on Franceinfo the minister delegate in charge of the territorial organization and the health professions about the announcement of the WHO. But if “global immunity is almost there”there is on the other hand “still hospitalizations due to Covid[-19] »she recalled, before calling on the elderly to continue to be vaccinated and the rest of the population to apply barrier gestures in the event of risky situations.

Reintegration of unvaccinated caregivers mid-May

During this interview Firmin-Le Bodo also deplored the adoption Thursday by the National Assembly of a text to repeal the obligation to vaccinate caregivers, during the communist parliamentary niche, which the government simply plans to suspend. “If ever a new variant arrives, we need to be able to react quickly. This repeal of the vaccination obligation will prevent us from reacting quickly.she said, lambasting a law “unacceptable”.

Caregivers who had been suspended for lack of a complete vaccination schedule against Covid-19 will return to their services from mid-May, announced last weekend the Minister of Health, François Braun, following the favorable opinion of the High Authority for Health at the end of March on the lifting of the vaccination obligation for the caregivers and professionals concerned.
