Incidence rates “Never known” in France since the start of the Covid-19 epidemic, reinforced measures in Guyana, strict confinement in Martinique, an explosion of cases in Guadeloupe …: the health crisis is “Extremely serious” in the West Indies, where Overseas Minister Sébastien Lecornu began on Tuesday one “Crisis visit”.

In Guyana, faced with the progression of the Delta variant, reinforced protection measures have been decided. As of Wednesday August 11, the curfew is back in place “From Saturday 8 pm to Monday 5 am” in the communes “The most affected by the increase in the number of contaminations: Cayenne, Macouria, Matoury, Rémire-Montjoly and Kourou”, announced the prefecture in a press release. These municipalities were already in the week at a curfew whose schedules remain “Unchanged” (from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.).

In addition, “Any unvaccinated traveler” from Martinique and Guadeloupe “Must have a compelling reason, present before boarding a negative PCR test (less than seventy-two hours) or antigenic negative (less than forty-eight hours) and certify on their honor that they agree to undergo an antigen test on arrival “. In the event of a positive result, the traveler will have to observe a period of isolation of ten days, extendable if the test is still positive after seven days. “This measure does not concern travelers whose vaccination schedule is complete”, specifies the prefecture.

In Guyana, the incidence rate is on the rise with 259 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, against 213 cases the previous week. “The impact on hospitalizations is to be feared within one or two weeks”, the prefecture is alarmed, adding that the Delta variant, more contagious, now represents “More than 60% of PCR tests” made in Guyana.

The sharp increase in cases in the West Indies will be on the menu of the health defense council, Wednesday, chaired by Emmanuel Macron by videoconference from Brégançon. The situation is “Extremely serious” in Martinique and Guadeloupe, repeated the government spokesperson, Gabriel Attal, on Tuesday evening. The incidence rate, « colossal », in his words, reached more than 1,700 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in Guadeloupe and 1,200 in Martinique.

Some “274 caregivers and 60 firefighters” from the metropolis arrived for “Lend a hand to medical teams” of the two islands, announced on Tuesday night Wednesday the Minister of Overseas Affairs, Sébastien Lecornu, on Twitter.

And Martinique, new strict containment has been put in place with non-essential businesses, vacation rentals, hotels and beaches closed as tourists were told to leave the island on Monday.

In neighboring Guadeloupe, the figures are also rising sharply with fourteen dead last week. The epidemic situation requires opening “100 resuscitation beds”, Mr Lecornu said on his arrival Tuesday night on the island.

In the two West Indian islands, barely 20% of the population is fully vaccinated, against more than 55% in mainland France. “The Delta variant is more contagious and affects a population that is not sufficiently protected”, Mr Lecornu told Agence France-Presse (AFP), worried about “Incidence rate that we have never known” in France.

The Polynesian High Commissioner, Dominique Sorain, announced on Monday the re-establishment of a curfew, from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m., throughout the territory from Wednesday. Given the outbreak of the epidemic, he did not rule out extending ” very quickly “ the hours of this curfew, or even to set up a re-containment. “On July 16, we had an incidence rate of less than 10, today we are at more than 1,000”, regretted Mr. Sorain.

After several months of very weak circulation of the virus, the epidemic rebounded suddenly in early August. No more Polynesians were hospitalized for Covid-19 in mid-July; they are now 159 to be, including 27 in intensive care.

The authorities had already introduced several restrictions since the end of July: limiting public gatherings to twenty people and banning any event bringing together more than 500 people, banning concerts, exhibitions, funfairs, weddings and birthdays in public establishments, closed discotheques and ballrooms, closed-door sports competitions.

When he announced the lifting of all health restrictions on July 19 for England, Boris Johnson did not hide a certain concern. “It is vital that we act with caution”, had urged the British Prime Minister to his people. The Delta variant was then spreading very quickly, and more than 50,000 positive cases per day were recorded, near the peak of the violent third wave in January.

Three weeks later, the bet turns out to be the right one. While masks are no longer mandatory, that there is no longer a gauge to respect in concert halls, nightclubs or football stadiums, the pandemic seems to be receding. The number of positive cases has halved to an average of 26,000 over the past seven days. Hospitalizations, which had remained low but had accelerated throughout July, are also declining: there are 750 admissions per day currently, against 900 at the end of July.

Epidemiologists taken by surprise

This trend has taken most epidemiologists by surprise, as well as the UK government itself. Sajid Javid, the Minister of Health, had publicly anticipated a possible peak of 100,000 positive cases per day, which would have been the highest level ever recorded for the pandemic. Neil Ferguson, epidemiologist at Imperial College London, whose models had been crucial in convincing Mr Johnson to impose the first lockdown in March 2020, even mentioned 200,000 cases per day.

Despite vaccination, which greatly limits symptoms, such a level of spread of the disease could overwhelm the health system. None of this did not happen. “Nobody really knows what’s going on”, acknowledged in an August 4 article of the journal Nature John Edmunds, epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).

In the absence of certainties, two main explanations for this paradox have been put forward. The first comes from Euro 2020, which took place from June 11 to July 11. The football competition saw England reach the final, and every game prompted the English to come together in pubs, fan zones or just in groups at home. On the day of the final, hordes of supporters partied all day across the country – until their team was defeated – essentially without masks or social distancing. “When the Euro stopped, we saw a rapid decline in the number of contaminations”, says Paul Hunter, professor of medicine at the University of East Anglia. He wants proof that the contaminations in Scotland, where the team had been eliminated on June 22, had started to decline three weeks earlier.

Despite the fourth wave of the Covid-19 pandemic which has been raging in Martinique for a month, in the volcanic north of the island, the beach of Anse Turin offered, in the afternoon of Monday, August 9, a apparently normal show for this summer vacation period. As usual, locals and tourists rubbed shoulders, with family or friends, on this wide strip of ash-colored sand, dominated by the imposing silhouette of Mount Pelée. But, facing the Caribbean Sea, carelessness was not total because, at the same time, in Fort-de-France, new announcements from the Prefect of Martinique were expected.

The island has been living to the rhythm of these prefectural decisions that are supposed to break the inexorable progression of the epidemic for several weeks now. And for several days, faced with the explosion in the number of positive cases and hospitalized patients, it was rumored that total confinement was going to be decreed.

Once again, the rumor was true. “We are going to enter a second phase of containment”, announced the prefect, Stanislas Cazelles. “Shops will be closed, except food shops and pharmacies”, he said, adding that “The hotels will be closed, except for the reception needs of professionals and people residing in the territory, it will be the same for seasonal rentals. “

Drastic new restrictions

For residents and holidaymakers alike, these new restrictions, which came into force on Tuesday August 10 at 7 p.m. and planned to last three weeks, are drastic: closure of places of culture and leisure – which could have remained open during the first phase of the program. confinement, started on July 30 – beaches inaccessible to the public, limitation of movement within a radius of one kilometer around the home. In addition, the curfew is maintained between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m.

In a few WhatsApp messages, the news spread quickly to Anse Turin and broke the atmosphere. “We’re leaving on Friday. And it relieves us to leave ”, confided Willy, a thirty-something Parisian who had been staying with his father since early July with his three children. His wife, Vanessa, had joined the small family on the 20th. “I had to bring my flight forward by four days because of the coming into force of the compelling reasons [pour les voyages entre la Martinique et l’Hexagone] », smiled the young woman. “We were not too embarrassed by the first confinement. But there, no activities, no beach… it will be hard with the children ”, Willy grimaced. Like this West Indian family visiting relatives, Stanislas Cazelles invited “All people in a tourism situation who are vulnerable to leaving the territory”.

The pandemic has killed at least 4,303,610 people around the world since the end of December 2019, out of more than 203 million contaminations, according to a report established by Agence France-Presse (AFP) from official sources Tuesday August 10 at 12 time. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, taking into account the excess mortality directly and indirectly linked to Covid-19, that the toll of the pandemic could be two to three times higher than the official figures.

A German worker tested for Covid-19 near the border with France, in Saarbrucken, Tuesday March 2, 2021.

In the hope of relaunching a vaccination campaign that is slipping, theGermany will put an end to free Covid-19 screening tests from October 11, the government and the regions decided on Tuesday. From this date, people who do not want to be vaccinated will have to pay for a test proving that they are negative for Covid-19 in order to be able to go to the cinema, to the restaurant or to the gym.

Proof of vaccination or a negative test will also be required as soon as the infection threshold reaches 35 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over seven days. The free tests will however remain in force for people who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, for pregnant women or children, according to the text adopted at the meeting between Angela Merkel and the sixteen heads of regional governments.

After vaccinating more than a million people per day at the height of the campaign, the pace has drastically slowed down in Europe’s largest economy during the summer holidays. Some 52 million people have received at least one dose in the country, or 62.5% of the population, according to the latest data from the Robert Koch Institute for Public Health Surveillance.

At Québec, the authorities have chosen the solution of the vaccination passport to restart vaccination. Quebecers wishing “Have access to high traffic public events and activities with a high contact rate of socialization” must present a vaccination passport from 1is September, announced Tuesday the Minister of Health of this province, Christian Dubé. Quebec is the first Canadian province to implement it.

The provincial government is to clarify in the coming weeks which specific public places will have the obligation to require the vaccination passport, which will be required in paper or electronic format through a free application. Some 84% of Quebecers have received a first dose of vaccine and 70% are fully vaccinated.

The situation is not improving in Guinea, where the president announced on Tuesday the strengthening of health controls at the borders, the compulsory wearing of masks, as well as the closure of nightclubs and ” other popular leisure spots ”.

“In an exceptional situation, exceptional measures are needed, applied with courage, determination, and the greatest firmness”, said Alpha Condé, according to a statement reporting to the Council of Ministers. Civil servants, including ministers, will only be able to access their workplace with their health pass.

People entering Guinea “Coming from countries particularly affected by the Delta variant” should be vaccinated, added the authorities, without giving the list of countries concerned, but stressing that PCR tests should also be presented on arrival.

Guinea has officially recorded some 27,112 cases of Covid-19, including 263 fatalities, an undervalued figure according to observers.

The provincial government is to clarify in the coming weeks which specific public places will have the obligation to require the vaccination passport, which will be required in paper or electronic format through a free application. Some 84% of Quebecers have received a first dose of vaccine and 70% are fully vaccinated.

The situation is not improving in Guinea, where the president announced on Tuesday the strengthening of health controls at the borders, the compulsory wearing of masks, as well as the closure of nightclubs and ” other popular leisure spots ”.

“In an exceptional situation, exceptional measures are needed, applied with courage, determination, and the greatest firmness”, said Alpha Condé, according to a statement reporting to the Council of Ministers. Civil servants, including ministers, will only be able to access their workplace with their health pass.

People entering Guinea “Coming from countries particularly affected by the Delta variant” should be vaccinated, added the authorities, without giving the list of countries concerned, but stressing that PCR tests should also be presented on arrival.

Guinea has officially recorded some 27,112 cases of Covid-19, including 263 fatalities, an undervalued figure according to observers.

Fifteen days later, she complains that she still has not received the result. “Laboratories and health centers are overwhelmed, the best is to wait and isolate yourself so as not to contaminate anyone”, answers Sophie Guèye, nurse in charge of nasal samples.

The deadlines for obtaining the test results have been lengthening since the start of the third wave in Senegal. Between June and July, cases increased ninefold and the number of deaths increased by 68% between July 23 and August 6, according to Alioune Badara Ly, director of the Center for Health Emergency Operations. Concern is growing among Senegalese, who want to know as soon as possible whether they are positive or not. “The fear is also there because people know that hospitals are starting to be saturated”, adds Doctor Abdou Karim Diop, chief medical officer of the Dakar-West district.

The answer to this congestion could be the mass use of rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs). A strategy easier to implement since the authorization on the market, on July 31, of the kits produced by the Pasteur Institute in Dakar and sold at an affordable price of 1,525 CFA francs (2.30 euros) to the Ministry of health.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(6170) "

This is yet another setback for Bayer, which faces thousands of lawsuits in the United States. The German giant has lost a lawsuit against a ruling that its Roundup weedkiller causes cancer.

A San Francisco appeals court on Monday, August 9, upheld a 2019 judgment in favor of a couple claiming to have fallen ill after using Roundup weedkiller for years. The court also upheld a judge’s decision to drastically reduce the amount of compensation awarded by the jury to Alva and Alberta Pilliod from $ 2 billion to $ 86.7 million.

Since the takeover, in 2018, of the American agrochemical company Monsanto, producer of Roundup, Bayer has faced a series of proceedings in the United States.

Roundup 360 authorization revoked

The Lyon Administrative Court of Appeal (Rhône) confirmed, on Tuesday, June 29, the cancellation of the marketing authorization for Roundup Pro 360, a glyphosate-based herbicide. The National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (ANSES) appealed against the judgment of the Lyon administrative court on January 15, 2019. Seized by the Independent Research and Information Committee on genetic engineering (Criigen), it had canceled the marketing authorization, issued in 2017 by the agency to the herbicide marketed by Bayer. In its judgment, the court relies on the precautionary principle, enshrined in the Environmental Charter, annexed to the Constitution. “This judgment is essential insofar as, beyond this Roundup, it calls into question the assessment made by ANSES of the precautionary principle in the issuance of marketing authorizations for glyphosate-based products” , believes the lawyer Corinne Lepage, who represented the Criigen in this case.

“Monsanto knew”

Tuesday he said to himself “Respectfully disagrees with the court’s decision” of San Francisco, which, according to him, is not supported by any tangible evidence. “We continue to be a strong advocate for the safety of Roundup, a position supported by four decades of in-depth scientific data and assessments from major health regulatory bodies around the world that support its safe use.”, said a spokesperson for the group. Bayer clarified that “Monsanto will study[it] his legal options in this case ”.

Glyphosate, the main component of Roundup, is nevertheless classified as “Probable carcinogen” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (WHO). In his judgment, the judge said Monsanto had shown a “Uncompromising refusal to inform the public” on the dangers of a product she made widely available in American hardware stores.

“Monsanto knew studies supporting the safety of Roundup were invalid when the Pilliods started spraying Roundup in their backyard, without gloves or protective gear, prompted by TV commercials.”, says the judgment.

125,000 complaints

Overwhelmed by these procedures, Bayer suffered a net loss of 2.3 billion euros in the second quarter. The group has indeed spent additional provisions of 4.5 billion dollars (3.8 billion euros) to face the lawsuits.

He signed in June 2020 a broad agreement of more than 10 billion dollars to put an end to some 125,000 complaints. But a U.S. judge in May rejected part of that plan, which would have limited the cost of future class action claims.

According to the judge, the deal does not sufficiently protect the interests of people who used Roundup before February 2021 and have not yet been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system.

In May, a San Francisco court also upheld a conviction against Bayer to pay $ 25 million in damages to California retiree Edwin Hardeman, diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2015. On Tuesday, Bayer said know that Monsanto planned to “File a petition with the Supreme Court of the United States this month” in that case.

No one is pretending to be surprised: for years scientists have been warning about global warming and the now irrefutable role of human activities in the upheavals at work. “You have been telling us for more than three decades about the dangers of letting the planet get warmer.
