Signatories, including emergency physicians, family doctors and scientists, said: “We are witnessing the official transition from active epidemic management to passive epidemic management. This is a bold gamble, the threshold is extremely high, and the control goal cannot be reached.”
They added: “After a year of giving up, France hopes to return to a more or less normal life. But this can only be done on the basis of science.” He called for “a new national agreement to establish clear boundaries and take Automatic measures. To be determined in advance.” and “Discussion.”
