We demanded that the mission of professor Lacombe not take place in Guyana . She is not welcome and we asked the prefect to make all the arrangements so that she is not welcomed in Guyana, explained the president of the local authority of Guyane , Rodolphe Alexandre, surrounded by senators LREM Georges Patient and Antoine Karam, in a video broadcast at the end of an appointment with the prefect and the director of the Regional Health Agency (ARS) this Tuesday, June 30.

The project to extend this therapeutic trial, already underway in mainland France, to Guyana and was announced on June 25 by Karine Lacombe during an audition in the National Assembly, but this initiative aroused strong opposition in Guyana, where some refused to be guinea pigs.

“Guyana is not a playground”

In a letter to the director of the ARS of Guyana, GDR deputy from Guyana Gabriel Serville records his breach of confidence: where does this unilateral idea come from that the Guyanese figures would justify the installation of an therapeutic center instead of hexagonal France? he asks.

He argues that on June 29, Guyana had only 120 hospitalizations, including 19 in intensive care, while the metropolis still had on June 26 8,886 people hospitalized and 634 in intensive care. Guyana had a total of 3,774 cases and 15 deaths on Monday.

A trial launched since April 7

Launched on April 7 by the French Blood Establishment (EFS), the Public Assistance-Hospitals of Paris (AP-HP) and Inserm, this trial consists of injecting patients suffering from Covid-19 plasma from recovered patients , containing antibodies to the coronavirus.

About 200 cured patients were to be collected in Ile-de-France, Grand-Est and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, while the trial was to include 120 patients in the acute phase of Covid-19: 60 receiving plasma and 60, a placebo.

But this figure has not yet been reached, explained Karine Lacombe, because when the trial was launched in early April we were already in the process of decelerating the epidemic, and that many patients arrived at the hospital in at that time did not meet the inclusion criteria to benefit from the plasma test.
