Nevertheless, the president of the Scientific Council, Jean-François Delfraissy had been heard by the Senate on the well being state of affairs on Wednesday, December 8, 2021. To the query of the president of the social affairs fee, the LR senator Catherine Deroche, on the curiosity of the well being move, his reply was clear: “now that we all know that vaccinated folks contaminate (…) Does the move actually defend? You’ve gotten the reply. The reply is not any”.
A majority of French folks have understood that neither the vaccination nor the detrimental check are ensures towards carrying, replicating or transmitting the virus.
As for Bruno Retailleau, the top of the LR group, after having agreed on June 22 on LCI that “the move was not helpful” and that he had taken his group on board in any case on the vote, he says he’s once more in favor!
What does Article 2 present?
The chief will probably be ready, by easy decree till 2023, to make journey to or from abroad territories and departments in addition to Corsica, conditional on the presentation of a detrimental check for Covid-19, a vaccination move or a certificates of restoration. If this text have been to be adopted, it will represent, in line with 10 LR senators who revealed a tribune, a breach of equality between French residents in line with their place of residence. Residents residing within the Republic’s abroad territories could be stigmatized and ostracized. If this text have been to be adopted, it will the truth is make vaccination obligatory for personnel working within the transport companies involved.
Lastly, opposite to what the federal government needs, restrictions on motion and freedom should not be adopted by decree, with out being submitted to a vote of Parliament. Parliament is the guarantor of public liberties and, as such, it can not delegate this supreme prerogative to the federal government by the use of a clean cheque when the present circumstances don’t justify it. Parliament has at all times been capable of react rapidly and effectively when circumstances require it.
Greater than ever connected to public liberties, these 10 LR senators launch a solemn attraction to all their colleagues within the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate to acquire the suppression of this invoice.
Sanitary move: what scientific observations?
Quite a few scientific observations and publications present that this move is basically poor
On the stage of French hospitals, information from Santé Publique France present that between November 2021 and April 2022, neither nosocomial infections nor COVID affecting caregivers have stopped, regardless of obligatory vaccination and the pricey move (60 million euros per 30 days in line with the French Hospital Federation) managed on the entrances of the institutions. If the origin of the nosocomial outbreak is recognized, it’s largely a affected person, however guests (13% vs. 9%) are extra regularly talked about… proof that the move is a decoy.
As COVID is a zoonotic illness, it has been proven, for instance, that the outbreak in Hong Kong was brought on by the importation of contaminated hamsters from the Netherlands through a pet store that imported pets in January 2022. SARS-CoV-2 infects dozens of untamed and home species that may cross borders and not using a well being move.
As well as, throughout festivals in July 2021 in Catalonia, regardless of the assessments, a major proportion of vaccinated folks and the sporting of masks, scientists have been capable of establish large contaminations. Thus, 757 and 662 folks for the primary and second competition respectively have been contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 and reported to the central well being register of the Catalan well being system.
Lastly, on the stage of worldwide vacationers, SARS-CoV-2 testing of airplane wastewater exhibits that obligatory testing and vaccination move earlier than boarding didn’t stop large importation of the Omicron variant into Europe in a French pre-published research.
In Norway, one of many first Omicron tremendous propagating occasions occurred amongst individuals, all absolutely vaccinated and all examined detrimental earlier than a Christmas meal in Oslo!
The scientific information, the opinions of Pr Delfraissy can be found however, it appears, not dropped at the data of some senators and deputies? Or does political logic take over?
Many French folks have understood for a very long time. And the distrust in direction of politicians is just getting stronger.
