The first analyzes show that 35.4% of the people tested were contaminated by the coronavirus. But the results differ according to the neighborhoods: in Saint-Jacques, nearly half of the inhabitants tested (47%) were in contact with the Covid-19, against 14% in Haut-Vernet and 17% in Nouveau-Logis. Alarming figures: by way of comparison, according to data from the Epicov study, the seroprevalence rate was estimated at 1.9% in Occitania in May. Women were also more affected than men in the neighborhoods tested by this study: 39%, against 31%.

The study also shows that people aged 65 and over were less exposed to infection (14.7%), “suggesting a lower number of contacts with sick people, compliance with barrier measures and greater isolation of these people who are perceived as more fragile by the community ”.

Sociocultural factors

“In the current context of an epidemic resumption (…), the first results of this survey confirm the need to continue efforts vis-à-vis vulnerable populations in order to reduce the risk of contamination, by implementation of targeted prevention actions adapted to this population living on a community basis, ”notes Damien Mouly, Occitan manager of Public Health France.

A study has been launched to try to find out whether certain socio-cultural factors, inherent in the gypsy community, can explain such circulation of the virus. The results will be known before the end of the year. "There are several factors", explained to Sud Radio, last April, Cathy Oustrière, nurse in Perpignan and president of the mediation association Le fil à métisser, which operates in these neighborhoods. First, there is the problem of "unsanitary housing". "But also the issue of promiscuity, because these are clans (...) who can live together with five, six or seven in small areas. There is also the community way of life, there are a lot of contacts. People can receive several members of their family on a daily basis. "

According to the study from the University Hospital of Perpignan," this population is also more exposed to the risk of developing serious forms given the higher prevalence of certain pathologies known to increase the risk of developing a more serious form of Covid-19 Such as diabetes, obesity, asthma or hypertension.
