World News: France, Covid-19, and The Inevitable Second Wave

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The arrival of a second wave becomes more certain each day, it will contribute to increasing an already violent observation in which the weaknesses of health systems and the slowness of integration of realities coexist. environmental and omnipotence guilty of globalized flows.

Although the Government, through the voice of Prime Minister Jean Castex, has refuted any new general reconfinement, statements also confirmed by the President of the Republic, now arises, despite the intentions and plans displayed to save the French economy, the management of the second epidemic wave which seems to be gradually taking shape in France.

What to do? The equation both at the Hôtel de Matignon and at the Elysée Palace seems insoluble because if a second wave were to really occur, what about the reception of future patients in hospitals?

Recall that the general confinement decreed on March 16 was decided, certainly to limit the spread of the virus, but above all to avoid a saturation of the resuscitation services of hospitals which had very little lacked a situation of engorgement heavy with consequences, not without sparing the nursing staff still very hard hit by the effects of the first wave.

Limits and Scarecrow

Because the current health crisis has revealed the limits of our health infrastructure to which we have preferred, and rightly, to avoid a massive influx of patients without, after the first wave, clearly exposing solutions and support funding to deal with another wave.

The exceptionality of the virus, both in its distribution and in its form, should not lead one to imagine that it will remain an isolated case in the history of mankind. And to hide the fact that other health crises could in the years, or even more simply in the months to come, hit the planet again, would be a mistake with still unsuspected consequences.

Global warming and the gradual thawing of permafrost (a zone of permanent freezing, impermeable because frozen, which is located in the arctic regions of the globe and represents about 20% of the Earth's surface) are shown here as a scarecrow at scale planetary because each of them refers our societies to realities that must henceforth serve as models of thoughts and no longer as distant references.

The bacteria reservoirs that shelter these polar zones must not be neglected in any way because the said bacteria, dormant for thousands, even millions of years, could easily wake up and cause the appearance of pandemics that may be more deadly than covid-19. ( In addition, the economic and human dynamics specific to globalization have, as the spring crisis has shown, favored the spread of the virus on a planetary scale.

Challenge and Warning

Humanity is therefore a triple challenge and not only for France or any other country: Rethinking health systems in order to be able to face all types of health crises to come, integrate environmental data into public policies in a much more advanced way than at present to the point of making it a priority and no longer a secondary aspect, rethinking the patterns of globalization by questioning the relevance of certain flows.

Certainly some will argue, and rightly so, that this triptych of measures has already been initiated, but at a still too slow pace. Shaking up the entire planet in the space of a few months is by no means a sinecure because the oppositions are, in addition, numerous and stopped, but doesn't it belong to Humanity, which has already demonstrated it in the past, to ignore this reluctance to ensure its future.

Covid-19, a pandemic which will eventually subside, is in fact only the first warning shot in a bacteriological story which is only just beginning.

Asserting that the World is on the verge of entering a new era is neither speculation nor divination but rather an observation. And wear a mask all day long, even if the measure is eminently useful and necessary for all, it will in no way hinder the opening of this new era.
