The French women and men had almost “forgotten” its existence. After two years spent fighting the Covid-19 coronavirus, the epidemic now seemed far behind us. Some experts, including Olivier Guérin, member of the Scientific Council but head of the autonomy and aging rehabilitation center of the Nice University Hospital, are not surprised by this capacity for resilience of the French population. Only here, he explains in the columns of Nice-Matin: the situation is now worrying. “The Covid-19 is coming back, and will come back again”, he warns in front of the microphones of our colleagues.

What the opposition did not fail to criticize… “I think the reasons are political. We wanted to exclude the Covid from the electoral period and the debates between candidates, in particular during the presidential election, but in reality the virus does not does not disappear. We are now paying the consequences,” said Bernard Jomier, a related PS senator from Paris in Public-Sénat.
