As the coronavirus epidemic continues to spread in Europe, it is vital to remember one key fact: COVID-19 does not spread by itself - it is people who pass it on. So, each and every one of us can act to limit its spread and slow down the dramatic overcrowding in our hospitals as quickly as possible. The only crucial action, which has to be collective, can be summed up in three words: "Let's stay home". Find all the sources of the episode on :

  1. COVID19 does not spread by itself - it is people who pass it on. Faced with this emergency, we thought it was a good idea to remind you of the only vital action, which has to be collective and which can be summed up in three words: #LetsStayHome


Script

Faced with the spread of the coronavirus, let's keep it simple. Basic. Hello. Sorry for the sound quality, this is recorded in an apartment on a phone. Due to self-confinement. Do you think we're giving in to psychosis? OK.

The coronavirus is way ahead of us. It's progressing behind a false perception of reality. To know how many people are sick, there are two ways to count. On the one hand, the "official" cases, tested and therefore reported. And on the other, the "real" cases, people who are contaminated and contagious but who sometimes don’t have the slightest symptom. In China, between December 8 and January 22, 444 cases were officially recorded. In the weeks that followed, the sick flocked to China’s hospitals. Among them, many cases were diagnosed as positive. The medical teams asked them how long ago the symptoms appeared. They thus discovered - after the fact - an estimate of the real cases over the same period: about 12,000. 27 times more than the official cases. This is the lead that the virus has on us.

Do you think it's specific to China? Wrong. In France, there is no systematic screening of the entire population. The number of actual cases is necessarily considerably higher than officially detected ones. It's not a conspiracy, just a reality. So, every time we go out, we play the virus’s game. Because Covid-19 does not spread by itself: it travels with us, even without symptoms, and spreads through our social interactions. Each infected person can infect two to three individuals. That's almost double regular flu.

Because Covid-19 does not spread by itself: it travels with us, even without symptoms, and spreads through our social interactions. Each infected person can infect two to three individuals. That's almost double regular flu.

One last detail. The mortality rate for the flu is 0.1%. That of coronavirus is between 0.5% and 5%. The discrepancy is easy to explain: in countries that rapidly implemented strict confinement, such as South Korea, the mortality rate is below 1%. In others, such as Italy or Iran, it varies between 3% and 5%. Delaying confinement means increasing the number of deaths by several thousand or even tens of thousands.

That is the violent, brutal reality. There is no longer even any question today of preventing hospital overcrowding. It’s probably already too late. But we can all play our part to limit that overcrowding. By radically limiting ALL our social interactions. It's the only way to contain the spread of the virus. It’s imperative to stay in your homes. And don't go outside for anything but essentials. You may feel isolated, but nothing will help more than that.
