Undermined by the coronavirus health crisis, French sport is angry with Emmanuel Macron , to whom the CNOSF and 95 federations have sent an open letter. The signatories deplore, among other things, being left behind and denounce "a stigma that is as violent as it is unfounded".

In this letter, the signatories say they are "distraught to note that the federated sport sector, , with its unique social and economic model, bearer of values ​​essential to the republican social fabric, clearly does not count in the priorities of action of our country in times of crisis ”.

CDC’s Strategies for Optimizing the Supply of N 95 FFRs were written to follow a continuum using the surge capacity approach in the order of conventional (everyday practice), contingency (expected shortages), and crisis (known shortages) capacities. N 95 FFRs are meant to be disposed after each use. CDC developed contingency and crisis strategies to help healthcare facilities conserve their supplies in the face of shortages. When the availability of N 95 FFRs become limited due to an expected shortage, supplies first should be conserved using contingency strategies.

The COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2

“For several months, we have been doing everything possible to adapt to the vagaries and to the multiple divergent and sometimes contradictory applications of health doctrine on field. […] Despite these efforts, our scheduled or rescheduled competitions and events are canceled, often at the last minute and due to excessive and unjustified application of health measures by local authorities, "they denounce.

A quarter of fewer memberships

"We are already deploring more than a quarter of fewer memberships, to the point that many clubs are now wondering if they will be able to make it through the year because more than 80% of between them, only led by volunteers, pillars of amateur sport, are still today excluded from the aid mechanisms provided for in the support plan piloted by the Ministry of the Economy ”, continue the signatories.

This is the fourth "national strike", also called at the call of the unions, to increase pressure on the Head of State, in power since August 2018 and whose popularity has fallen to 38%.

China is providing urgently needed assistance to Europe in the coronavirus crisis . But what is needed for the long term is a ban on the trade in wild animals. Otherwise, the next pandemic is as good as certain. The illegal trade in pangolins may have caused the coronavirus pandemic. Aid from China is very welcome where health care systems are desperately overstretched. Many countries are going it alone and closing their borders. Solidarity is being sorely tested. Thousands of people are dying, millions face losing their livelihoods. Personal freedoms are being curtailed in once unimaginable ways.

Dr. Seheult also discusses a recent Lancet article about coronavirus hospital admissions, MuLBSTA score, and unsubstantiated theories such as an HIV association with coronavirus .

"You will therefore understand our incomprehension of being subjected to a stigma that is as violent as it is unfounded, because it is not supported by objective elements. How can we understand and explain why other activities are still permitted, including in the areas most affected by the epidemic, but not the practice of sport in areas that are more preserved? "

" We do not want to disappear before Covid-19 "

The CNOSF and the signatory federations denounce" the failure to take into account the specificities of [their] sector by an appropriate support system ". “From a budgetary standpoint, we deplore that the few euros promised here are taken back to us there, in unworthy and humiliating sleight of hand. "

" We must therefore live with [the virus] as long as it has not been defeated but we do not want to disappear before it ", conclude the signatories, recalling France's hosting of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024 Emmanuel Macron will convene a Defense Council on Tuesday before his Prime Minister Jean Castex receives at the end of the day "the political forces" then the social partners in Matignon, suggesting a hardening of measures to fight against Covid.
