“I think I will need time to regain my physical condition from before,” said the minister, who had been infected with the South African variant, however little present in France. “I would like to say to those who think that this virus is not so serious that this disease does not leave you unscathed,” she adds.
“This virus is unpredictable”
“What’s scary is that this virus is unpredictable,” she said again. “It hit my lungs, I had difficulty breathing and at one point I couldn’t eat or drink.” And to add: “At one point, we say to ourselves: ‘Everything is going haywire. Are we going to get out of this?'”
At the hospital, the minister was “punctually oxygenated”. And today, she still does not know how she contracted the virus despite her precautions. “I’m very careful,” she says, taking the opportunity to remind everyone that “the more you can reduce interactions, the better”. Her colleague in the government, the Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot, is still on oxygen in the hospital.
