As tourists flock to the Mediterranean coast during this summer vacation, the regions of southern France are experiencing a strong epidemiological recovery. To prevent saturation of Ossetan hospitals, patient transfers should be organized this week.

After transfers from Grand Est to other regions in 2020, Moselle returns the beautiful

The incidence in Occitanie is 412.8 new patients per 100,000 inhabitants compared to 128.3 per 100,000 in Grand Est. This significant difference is even greater when we compare the figures for the Herault division (601.8 per 100,000) with those of Moselle (155 per 100,000). Prevention rather than cure … This is the choice made by ARS Occitanie, which will transport about twenty patients to other French regions less affected by the virus. Two to three of them per week should arrive at the CHR Center in Metz-Thionville, according to its general manager, Marie Odell Sailard.

Moselle reinforcements were sent to the West Indies

In Guadeloupe and Martinique, the situation is already out of control with hospitals saturated and infection rates of 1,166 in Martinique and 1.747 per 100,000 inhabitants in Guadeloupe. Strong pollution mainly affects young people but gradually spreads to other age groups. In order to help these areas, 240 volunteers from urban caregivers will be relocated to the two islands. The Metz CHR also helps dispatch two nurses and a doctor.

Help: Clear to CHR Metz-Thionville

All the residents of the Grand Est are still distinguished by the great solidarity that occurred between the French regions during the first wave in the spring of 2020. Many patients from our region, very affected by the epidemic, have been transferred to other French hospitals. Marie-Odile Sailard remembers it well, so when Martinique, Guadeloupe and Occitanie asked for help, the positive response was clear: “Let us not forget, I am precisely in a position to state that I was, at the time during the first wave, asking for help to request relocation to other areas. So it was only natural and obvious that we acceded to this request.” If the arrival of patients from Occitanie is not yet known, caregivers were scheduled to leave Moselle for the West Indies on Tuesday.
