On March 10, when the ambulance picked him up outside his home in Saint-Philibert (Morbihan), Jean-Denis Du Péage is exhausted, unable to stand up. “I figured it might be the last time I was here. I was not well, I was shaking with all my limbs“, explains the pensioner.
He was put on oxygen at the pulmonology department at Vannes hospital (Morbihan). A team of journalists from France 2 met him at the end of his treatment, on foot but stunned. His wife did not catch the Covid-19. “As soon as my husband had a fever, I got very far from him. He wore a mask, I always washed my hands, I never caught him“, she said. At 73, this retired insurer lost six pounds and forced himself to a daily nap.
