Since Thursday the biologists have suspended the transmission of screening data on the SI-DEP platform, a device that allows to follow the epidemic in France, to protest against the planing of 250 million euros that the government intends to impose on them. the Social Security Financing Bill.
” It’s not boring, it’s unacceptable “, Declared François Braun, questioned about Europe 1. ” The attitude of the representatives of biologists is inconsistent, unconscious, inadmissible, I wrote to them to tell them “, He continued.
According to him, these biologists take the entire population hostage ” And ” they blind us to the management of an epidemic that still kills “.
” Obviously I hope they come to their senses and stop this type of maneuver “, He hoped, evoking” discussions that had started, which are obviously stopped in these circumstances “.
“A sector that has largely benefited from the crisis”
Asked about the government’s budget choice, which wants to impose savings of 250 million euros per year on biologists, the minister estimated that ” it is a sector that has benefited a lot from the Covid crisis “, passing” 900 million in profits in 2019 to 1.6 billion in 2020 and 3 billion in 2021 and that’s social security money “, he threw.
” Everyone must work to ensure that our health system, our social security can survive, so that we can continue to reimburse health care to all French people. added Mr. Braun, before concluding that ” 250 million under the current circumstances of profits made by biology, is a reasonable effort “.
The conflict seems destined to last: the draft budget on which the government activated 49.3 Wednesday night keeps the fit as it is.
Biologists also report responsibility to the government: this boycott of the SI-DEP ” it is the result of your inflexibility “, They write in a letter sent Friday to Mr. Braun and the Minister of Public Accounts Gabriel Attal.
Less accurate Covid data?
” The resolution of this situation remains in your hands “, They add in this document consulted by the AFP, recalling having presented” a counter-proposal to health insurance ” in order to ” participate in the control of health expenditure “.
Waiting, the action of biologists will alter data on the number of daily Covid-19 cases from this Friday, Public Health France pointed out during a press conference. Incidence and positivity rates will be affected by Sunday.
However, antigen tests (carried out mainly in pharmacies) account for more than half of the tests carried out. Their analysis will allow us to continue following ” the evolution of the epidemic “according to the health agency.” The data remain interpretable “, Reassures Public Health France, which remembers it has a surveillance system” multisource “.
