There will be no shortage of self-tests, assures the government


While demand continues to be strong with the Omicron variant, some were concerned about a possible shortage of anti-Covid tests. The hiccups about the school health protocol, which provided for self-tests to be given to parents whose child was in contact, only reinforced this fear. The government spokesperson, Gabriel Attal, during a visit on Friday to a warehouse for the distribution of health products in Saint-Ouen, therefore assured that there would be no lack of self-tests.

“The stocks are arriving, they are in number, 11 million were delivered this week and they will continue to be delivered” to pharmacies, he said, acknowledging “difficulties” at the start of the Omicron wave. To meet demand, while a new record of 12 million tests per week was reached last week, “the state stock of Public Health France of self-tests has been taken out of stock,” he announced. to the press.

Continuous dialogue after the strike in National Education

For Gabriel Attal, the government is staying the “course” against the Covid: “keep the country open”, “keep schools open”, despite the increase in contamination. For this, the relaxed health protocol now requires contact case students to produce three negative self-tests, without obligation of antigen test or PCR, to continue going to class, as announced by Prime Minister Jean Castex on Monday.

This easing was not enough to prevent a massive strike Thursday in the National Education to denounce in particular the lack of consultation on the part of the government. Following the mobilization, the unions were received Thursday evening by the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health and the Minister of National Education. A “continuous dialogue will now take place between representatives of educational staff and the government with the Ministry of National Education, Ministry of Health, twice a month,” assured the government spokesperson.
