Emmanuel Macron warned that new health decisions would be taken. The head of state has not wished to make mea culpa about his policy to fight Covid-19 so far. “The mea culpa is not appropriate, no one is considering blaming the French leaders and others for moral misconduct”, Explains Jean-Louis Bourlanges, Modem deputy and chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the National Assembly, guest of the “4 Vérités” of France 2, Friday March 26.
“I think we were right to do everything we could to keep the children in school. We cannot continue to slaughter the education of the youth.”, specifies the Modem deputy. “For three weeks we should have reacted faster and stronger. We now have an emergency. I think we will not escape a school closure, hopefully short-lived.”, he adds.
The countries of the European Union seem powerless to stem the third wave. “There is no European straitjacket. Europe has been slow enough, quite numb, it has not been handled satisfactorily, but it is a mistake in reasoning to think [que la campagne de vaccination] of Israel or the United Kingdom, it is generalizable. The truth is, we are running out of vaccines. However, you can only cure this pandemic globally. If half of Europe has no vaccines, all of Europe is doomed to relapse “, Indicates the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the National Assembly.
Should we review the political mechanism of the European Union? “You cannot decide unanimously in the EU. Anything that is done by qualified majority will work”, concludes Jean-Louis Bourlanges.
