TV MAGAZINE. - Why did you decide to focus on the relationship between Donald Trump and the FBI?

Marina CARRÈRE D’ENCAUSSE. - Because it's absolutely fascinating! The President of the United States, his father and his grandfather all dealt with the Mafia. When we take up her story, you see that it was built on her. And, at the same time, he got out of very complex situations thanks to his connection to the FBI. When he was really worried about organized crime, he would go to the feds for help, and they were happy to learn more about the Mafia. He created a kind of triangle which allowed him to gain advantages.

How do you see the management of the Covid-19 epidemic in the United States?

As a doctor, there are things I cannot hear. It's not possible to go to meetings to kiss everyone without wearing an mask. Or to say that he will take hydroxychloroquine and various products that have not been scientifically validated. It is not audible from the representative of one of the most powerful countries in the world. After that, the United States was no worse off than any other country in terms of the numbers.

The figures of new cases of Covid-19 are soaring in France. What state of mind are you in?

Invited on the set of Quotidien this Monday, October 26, the actor returned to his controversial remarks and described this text as "irresponsible".

I'm worried because the virus is progressing and circulating a lot . I am reassured by the quality of our medicine, and the mobilization of our caregivers. They are there and they are always the same ... 20% of them have not taken a day off since March. They are totally exhausted and, for many, disillusioned.

Is the house on fire?

I wouldn't say that, but it is serious in that you cannot control the circulation of the virus. If my figures are correct, mortality in intensive care is lower today than it was in March-April, because we know how to take better care of the sick. But, in a very short time, the intensive care units will be saturated . We can no longer transfer patients from one region to another, because all of France is affected. We no longer have that flexibility!

Are the media doing too much around this coronavirus?

It depends. If it is to relay the important messages, namely to wear masks, to respect barrier gestures and to explain why, that is very good. If it is to invite conspirators and people who relay fake news, including "reassuring" doctors, who have come to explain that there is no second wave and that the figures are false, it is not is not responsible.

Some of them explain that the epidemic is over. Others say it is even more violent than last spring. Why do health professionals contradict each other so much on television?

I am a doctor and a journalist, I have been studying this coronavirus crisis from the start and, quite frankly, I do not understand that doctors, some of whom are very intelligent and rigorous, are saying things against the official figures. We can say that the management of the crisis is bad, but the figures are there! We cannot say that the intensive care units are empty…

What do you think of the media madness around Didier Raoult ?

Studies that have been conducted show that hydroxychloroquine is not the medicine to use to stop this epidemic. There was a craze, because the man is very intelligent and he is a real scientist. And now I do not understand his attitude and that he could have said things before a scientific truth exists.

Will you be volunteering to help caregivers in hospitals?

I haven't exercised for a very long time. And I think I'm more useful today by doing my job as a doctor on television, by informing viewers, than by going back to the staff because I wouldn't be competent. If it's about taking care of Covid-19 patients, I don't have enough training.
