Aurélien Rousseau, the director general of the Ile-de-France regional health agency, asked to be relieved of his duties. In office for three years, including a year and a half of health crisis, he confirms to Franceinfo his willingness to leave. “I have to catch my breath a little, he said, After months of incredible intensity that put me to the test “.
The government will decide the date of his departure in the Council of Ministers “at the end of the month, if by then everything does not turn red”, specifies Aurélien Rousseau to franceinfo. “It is also the epidemic that sets its requirements.”
“There is no countdown on my side. The only countdown is the one to vaccinate and fight against the variants”, he continues. “The (regional health) agency is solid in its support. The teams are doing an exceptional job and there is only collective commitment”, insists Aurélien Rousseau. The current director general of the Ile-de-France regional health agency should return to the Council of State once relieved of his duties.
