To contain the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic, WHO recommends testing. Why are these tests an absolute emergency? “It is imperative that we know, among these people, who has the disease so that we can shelter them, remove them to specialized services”, explains the doctor Jérôme Marty, general practitioner in Fronton (Haute-Garonne). He recommends testing all the nursing staff, “Because the problem with this pathology is that it is very nosocomial, that is to say that it is often transmitted by caregivers”.
What must be done to get out of the health crisis? “The way out of confinement can only be conceived by testing the entire population. The sneaky fact of this pathology is that many forms are asymptomaticthat is, you develop the disease and heal without knowing it. However, you excrete the virus and can therefore transmit the disease ”, he concludes.
