While Govt-19 figures are still breaking records this week, tightening of health restrictions is widely expected in La Runion. A partial or total restructuring will undoubtedly have severe economic consequences for the island’s companies.

As with every (re) imprisonment, you have to choose between health and economy. This is a dilemma that the prefect leader has to solve in this situation.

According to health officials, imprisonment after four weeks will have consequences only to have an impact on the health condition and help reduce the number of pollutants.

During a press conference last week, Philip Aquitaine, CHU Sud’s medical director for the crisis, said it was necessary. Tighten the braking action further, Or rearrange the island. “I prefer imprisonment to hospitalization,” he pointed out.

Currently, activities are planned to allow for the opening of new revitalized beds. “The continuous increase in enrollment and the number of occupied beds will have a greater impact on our health system and we need to plan for further enhancement in resuscitation and medicine,” officials warned.

La Rooney is under curfew from 9pm to 5am. From January 1, 2022. Ineffective control as the numbers on the island continue to deteriorate. The last imprisonment is before August 2021 6 pm curfew on weekdays and partial imprisonment The weekend was decided.
