The deputy Francois Ruffin criticized today the new law that will regulate the "vaccination pass" and blamed the president, Emmanuel Macron, of the deep crisis in which the French public hospitals find themselves.
After three days of debates in the National Assembly, the deputies approved in the early hours of the morning a legislative project that reinforces the tools for managing the health crisis, by 214 votes in favor, 93 against and 27 abstentions.
The left-wing group Francia Insoumise expressed its concern about the violation of democratic rights introduced by the new law and the totally digital approach that the Government defends against covid-19 and, in that sense, Macron's statements against the unvaccinated were considered by Ruffin as irresponsible.
For the deputy to blame the increase in infections on those who do not have the complete immunization cycle or even consider that "they are no longer citizens", as stated by Macron, it only shows that for the president "we are not facing a health issue, but facing a police issue, "he said.
However, he pointed out that the serious crisis in which public hospitals find themselves is due to the fact that during the current legislature "17 beds were closed, including 5 since the COVID-700 epidemic began."
Ruffin recalled that "in many cities the emergency services have closed completely, or at night, or on weekends, or have been suspended, or have closed their pediatric service", in total there are 76 in any of these situations, and added that "this is not due to the covid, it is due to the policy of Macron and Olivier Véran (Minister of Health)".
At the same time, he thanked the health personnel for their delivery and service, despite the fact that a “budget cut in hospitals of one billion euros was carried out and there was no additional item for resuscitators, which was only 67” million euros. , reported Prensa Latina.
All of this has caused discouragement among the health workers who feel "mistreated and abused," explained Ruffin, from being considered heroes they went on to suffer a crisis due to the exhausting days and the lack of beds, which causes a "moral tear" and makes many professionals "leave the hospitals," he said.
