“I had to go on vacation … I will do it anyway”
“It’s dead, I’m going to spend my birthday alone,” says Nathalie, a Lyonnaise, at the microphone of Europe 1. She does not seem very convinced by the measures decided by the government, which she considers too late. “We could have perhaps made a containment in February … Maybe there we would have escaped”, she criticizes. Encountered a few meters further, Hugo, 25, has no intention of bullying himself. Especially since the spring break is scheduled in two weeks. “I had to go on vacation next week to Marseille,” he explains. “Well, I’ll do it anyway, but I’ll have to be careful …”
In his words, one feels the dawning of exasperation. “We had been eating well for over a year. We did our part of the job too. So yeah, I want to relax a bit,” he says. Yet, given recent data on Covid-19 contamination, many Lyonnais knew they would not escape additional measures. Friday afternoon, Clara had therefore planned a last little pleasure, shopping: “Zara, Mango … All the non-essential stores according to them but essential for us”, she says with a smile. .
Annick finds that the authorities can “not do otherwise”. “We realize that the confinement was effective in April, then in December … We must not be selfish.” But weariness seems to have already won the Lyonnais, while season three of confinement has only just begun.
