EXCLUSIVE Coronavirus: Didier Raoult slams the door of Macron's Scientific Council
The boss of the IHU Méditerranée Infection defied the majority opinion of his peers by opening his establishment to the massive screening of Covid-19 and the hydrochloroquine treatment of "febrile patients". Several hundred Marseillais are still lining up in front of the institute on Tuesday.
The break is this time consummated between Didier Raoult and the government: "I no longer participate in the Scientific Council gathered around Emmanuel Macron" announced this Tuesday morning to "Les Echos" the iconoclastic patron of the IHU Mediterranean Infection, while specifying that he does not resign. Disagreed for weeks with the containment policy which he describes as medieval, he insisted that massive screening resources were needed nationwide to detect suspicious cases, isolate and treat positive patients. As in South Korea: the country reported on Monday the lowest number of new daily cases of contamination with the coronavirus since the end of February and is now fueling hopes of controlling the epidemic.
