Some few words about the situation in France…

Tiger, some few words about the situation in France…

I saw your new services on the website: it’s a very good solution. Congratulation !!

I don’t know if this document can bring something to your project but it is my way to keep the contact and help : it is essential for me.

 

Take care Tiger

 

Saturday March 13 : Diner with friends at home.

As the Prime Minister are announcing a 2 weeks confinement, my friends arrive at home one after the other. Dentists, traders, physiotherapists and parents: we are all affected by this announcement. Tonight, we are already illegal, but let’s take advantage of this last moment together in pulpit and bone. 

Sunday March 14 : My dentist friends provide a responsible guard and welcome 14 people with their usual equipment (surgical masks and gowns).

10 days later…

Relieved, we were not positive and no one was infected. 

Today, we are starting our second week of confinement.

For the majority, French people are at home !! A small part remains outside, in front of the infected : the carers.

Hospitals are seeing an exponential increase in the number of patients and the first caregiver deaths are recorded.

While the tsunami is expected for the next few weeks, the hospitals are gradually organizing themselves materially. In town, general practitioners, nurses and dentists continue to provide emergencies under difficult conditions.

and my friends dentists then?

During the first week, they no longer had masks to handle emergencies. I managed to find some masks but not enough to work in suitable conditions. This week, the clinics are closed. The SAMU (emergency regulation service) contacts dentists to go to their office to receive patients a day or two for a week. The precursor wants that they must go to the council (Ordre des Medecins) of the order to recover masks FFP2 (the only ones which block the virus. The SMALL stock of surgical masks of the 176 dentists of my city were given to the hospitals. Suppliers no longer deliver and only the government delivers the material. A the start of the epidemy, they have sold matérials with a high price. For example, the price of a FFP2 was 9€ (incrédible). In a second time, Governement regulated prices and now suppliers deliver all except (mask, gloves and other disposable equipment) 

In the meantime, many dentists have been contaminated because the precautions had not been taken.

 

I wanted to write these few lines to you to share our situation and that you can take advantage of this experience. By sharing, we will be able to work effectively together.
