At the foot of the Pyramides district, in Evry (Essonne), the Pierre and Marie Curie health center lives to the rhythm of the Covid-19. In his office, the doctor David Song Matha, one of the six doctors of the structure, is particularly vigilant: 40% of his patients consult for the Covid. A young woman did not escape the contamination and still has sequelae. “After four months, I still don’t have a smell”, entrusts the latter. Rehabilitation at a specialist is prescribed. Before, during or after, the disease leaves traces, and the shock wave will be lasting. The doctor cites in particular “those who have had the Covid and who continue to have signs of the Covid, so far, in terms of fatigue, headaches, and even mental disorders”.
Without getting infected, some patients are paralyzed by the thought of catching it. A bus driver is off work, and thus opts for a teleconsultation. “I was like, ‘if I catch this virus, I’m going’. (…) Death terrifies me.” About twenty professionals have been sharing the centre’s premises since 2018. Far from emergencies and hospitals, the team is also facing the pressure of the epidemic. “When there is an overload in relation to Covid in hospitals, (…) it is just as many beds that were dedicated to other pathologies that are closed, and these patients, we receive them”, explains Dr. Hermann Mbongo.
