The trajectory is worrying and undoubtedly requires thinking about additional measures“estimated the first deputy mayor of Paris Emmanuel Grégoire Thursday February 25 on franceinfo, about the health crisis of the coronavirus. He advocates a strict but short confinement, of three weeks, for Paris. And this despite the choice of the president of the Republic to do everything to avoid it: “The will of Emmanuel Macron is not a sufficient scientific health argument to convince me“, he explained.

According to Anne Hidalgo’s first deputy, “the current situation“Under curfew is”the worst because they are half measures with bad results“.”You can’t force yourself to live in a semi-prison for months“, he added. The town hall will propose this three-week confinement to the prefect and the regional health agency in order” to have the prospect of reopening everything “at its end.

He also rejects the possibility of confinement on the weekend he judges “very restrictive in terms of societal impact and relatively ineffective in terms of health “. In the absence of real confinement, the elected Parisian would prefer “compulsory teleworking and measures targeted at traders with discernment, objectively, on the criteria and then of limited duration“.

The Prime Minister however “right, at least on one point“according to Emmanuel Grégoire, who adheres to the new strategy of territorialization of measures to prevent them from being”too restrictive in territories where it seems absolutely ridiculous when they are implemented and unquestionably not effective enough in territories which are under the threat of a worsening of the situation“.
