Still in stage 1?

With these three cases of contamination by intra-family contacts, La Réunion now has an identified local contamination chain. The prefecture of La Réunion and the Regional Health Agency have not yet indicated whether our department is going into stage 2. Stage 2 consists of slowing the spread of the virus, and stage 3 aims to attenuate the epidemic wave.

“Towards a health catastrophe”?

In a press release published Friday evening, the Departmental Council of the Order of Doctors affirms “that we are heading towards a health disaster in Reunion”. “We should be in stage 3!” indicates the Council of the Order of Doctors which challenges the public authorities and claims “let them take stock of the health crisis we are going through”.
