While France is restricting restriction to try to limit the spread of ranging Omicron, Hungary, it seems far from these considerations. Rightly or wrongly, from the point of view. Thus, after having to observe strict protocols in the House of Handball, the Blues, who have even had to leave in Creteil captain Valentin Porte time that it presents a negative test (which was the case this Tuesday morning), do not expect a welcome ... if released Szeged in their hotel, where they will play the first round of Euro starting Thursday against Croatia (20:30).

OJ 2022: The "Sanitary Bubble" set up around Beijing

 OJ 2022: The © Thomas Sen / Reuters The Olympic Cross-Country Ski Center in Beijing An Anti-Covid " Sanitary Bubble" has been put in place Tuesday around the sites of the Beijing Olympic Games, a month just before the start of the tests that are offered as the most monitored in the pandemic era. China, where the pandemic has been detected for the first time at the end of 2019, has eradicated the disease largely by resorting to very strict tests of screening, tracing, confinement and vaccination.

" We were shocked, shocked to say the conditions in which competition occurs ," said Nikola Karabatic. "We respected strict protocols for not catching the Covid and here we come to the hotel from customers that are not hidden. We eat in the same places as the other guests. We impose many restrictions to protect us and there the conditions turn for the least amazing. "An opinion supported by his teammate, Vincent Gérard," " For sure it changes our last two competitions (in Egypt and Tokyo) where we were in very safe conditions. There, when we arrive and we see people going in swimsuits at the pool of the hotel without masks or anything, it's a shock. sanitary protocol level, that is at least different. We are working hard to not test positive and we thought it was a weird situation. And without wanting to argue, I'm not sure that's very respectful for players and staffers who sweat blood to get in good conditions. '

More than 20,000 patients diagnosed with CVIV-19 are hospitalized in France this Tuesday, January 4, according to the latest public health figures France. It is a plateau that the country has not exceeded since May 2021. There is a point on the situation territory.

Regarding staff, Guillaume Gille appeared very annoyed by the situation, hoping that it is changing rapidly, " It's a big difference between the strict protocol of the EHF which required most vigilance and arrival in a country that saw the Covid very differently. And the EHF has clearly not seen fit to impose the same standards everywhere. It seems that all the upstream work is somewhat undermined by the organization on site. I hope our lift to the organizers will regulate this quickly because such a large gap is not acceptable. "A health situation that has not yet thrown Kentin Mahé, who plays club in Hungary, near Veszprem" Knowing Hungary, I'm not surprised. We know that the Hungarian government makes decisions later than some of its neighbors. Why ? I do not know, I'm not a politician. But this is something that does not surprise me to be honest. "

No gauge Hungary

For the Blues, this facility in Hungary thus had the scent of life leading-Covid, aspired Nikola Karabatic, while being realistic:" We would like everyone I think the world, return to a normal situation. But I do not know when this will be possible. Obviously, it is difficult to prepare in a bubble, spend Christmas or New Year with family by having in mind the fear of catching Covid and potentially miss the Euro. It is not easy to have to watch everything, as was the case before the Olympic Games. Now, as I've said, we are not the most pitiable. "The only good news in all this, the rooms will be filled on the Euro in Hungary (not in Slovakia however, the co-hosts where a gauge to 25% has been set). What a delight Vincent Gérard nevertheless wary: "We are necessarily happy player in potentially rooms full. This is the essence of our sport. But at what cost ? I do not know. It's not my place to judge. "
