Emmanuel Macron assumes everything. At the end of the European Council, the President of the Republic defended his strategy and his choice not to reconfigure the country last January to fight against the Covid-19 epidemic. The head of state announces difficult weeks to come, and does not rule out new measures.
Faced with accusations from scientists and the opposition, which accuses the president of not having reconfigured France sufficiently early in January, while the epidemic situation was deteriorating, Emmanuel Macron assumes. “We were right not to confine France at the end of January. Because there was not the explosion that was predicted by all models“, justified the President of the Republic at the end of the European Council Thursday, March 25. A polemic point, which aroused the reaction of the opposition.”We were waiting for him to tell us concrete things. (…) We expect an order to mobilize from him. However, he teaches us that everything will continue as before“, comments for his part Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
Friday March 26, in Troyes (Aube), François Baroin requested the closure of schools. “In the territories which are less affected today, confinement will make it possible, combined with vaccination, to prevent these territories in turn from falling victim to the British variant in a few weeks.“, explains Dr. Djillali Annane, head of the intensive care unit of the Raymond-Poincaré Hospital in Garches (Hauts-de-Seine). Emmanuel Macron has already warned that he could make new decisions in the coming days, as in the next weeks.
