“My little brother was diagnosed with covid-19. He's had symptoms for about 6 days and was at the hospital in Paris yesterday as breathlessness got unmanageable. They scanned his lungs and sent him home, and I find it very hard to concentrate on anything else. Please stay home. See Less

“Interview - Doctor in Paris, France:
This is a first-hand account from a SafelyHQ user that is a medical professional on the coronavirus situation in France. She discusses how her work has changed since the start of the pandemic, work rotations and testing for medical professionals, and issues faci... See Moreng patients and medical professionals.

Charlotte:
I'm a pediatric resident and I work in a pediatric hospital. I was working in the genetics unit and it's mostly outpatient and non-intensive care, so we were actually closed down last week. Just because most of us are pediatricians and so we were kind of needed elsewhere. So I decided to stop working because of my pregnancy. But then all my other colleagues are still working and they're actually now, at home, confined at home and they're waiting to be called to different departments are probably either the ER or intensive care unit and from what they understand for now, they just have to stay home and rest. And they're going to be called out probably next week when the first wave of doctors start being a little tired, probably hospitalized because they themselves are sick. So right now they're mostly, resting at home. And then I know that our unit, so was shut down and a lot of other non-urgent care at our hospital was shut down and everything is being reorganized so that we have Covid units. And so at the hospital I work in, is actually a pediatric hospital, but they're going to open an adult Covid unit just because obviously adults are more affected than children are.

SafelyHQ:
Are there any changes as a pediatrician?

Charlotte:
In most maternity at least in Paris, the dads aren't allowed in the delivery room or in the hospital at all for now. So things are pretty rough on new moms right now. And I know that we're also kind of being slowly prepared that we're probably not going to be able to have an epidural just because there won't be any doctors available. So, getting prepared for maybe a rough delivery for most new moms right now, at least new Parisian moms.

SafelyHQ:
Is testing easy for people to get so far or has it been a problem for some people. And how do things look like on that front?

Charlotte:
So, in our hospital it's very easy for all medical, staff if they have any of the symptoms to get tested. It's very, very easy. I know that for patients we only test patients that are unstable or in very critical care. Just because we can't afford to test everyone, but staff is definitely prioritized and we're all told we can get tested as easily if we want to. Or if I mean, not if you want to obviously if you have symptoms.

SafelyHQ:
Did you know anyone who has got diagnosed with coronavirus?

Charlotte:
Yeah, actually, I already have a couple of friends who are staying at home because they have it. One of my, well actually he is also a pediatric resident is at home right now with, well he's getting tested today, but it's most likely Covid. His wife was tested and got tested positive after having a five day fever. And now he has a fever since yesterday, so he did his test today. So very, very likely, also Covid positive. And so his wife is also a medical resident who probably got it working at the ER and then he got it through her.

SafelyHQ:
Being in the medical field and seeing what, the medical field is doing in France and learning about, about coronavirus. And having some friends who have it, do you have any, messages that you, they have for people who want to learn more?

Charlotte:
I think just the best thing is to stay informed on what's happening on reliable sites because I know there's a lot of misinformation out there and just do what they can to stay home. Because the big wave is going to come. And I know all my friends in the hospitals are getting as ready as they can, but I'm sure you've heard that there already some parts of France that are in a very, very complicated situation where they're already out of machines for like life support machines and out of room in intensive care units. And so hopefully Paris doesn't get there, but we never know. And it all kind of just relies on people really being careful and staying home and I know everyone wants to go outside to buy their bread and whatever, but it's always a risk. And just be mindful that, yeah, doctors are doing the best they can. And I know I have friends that are pharmacist and other things like that that are complaining because they don't have masks or they're not protected. But the truth is doctors rarely have mask as well, and everyone's of kind of going through it as they can and doing the best they can. So yeah, that's the message. I think just relax, stay at home and know that everyone is trying to get organized and do the best they can, and it's obviously not perfect, but it is what it is for now.

“Interview - Maroy, Lyon France:
This is a first hand account of the coronavirus situation in Lyon France, including one member of their community that has been diagnosed, and another working in a nearby hospital.

Maroy:
I am 25 and I'm living in Lyon in the east France and it's like the third... See Moreregion which is the most touched by the virus. And right now I'm at home since Monday the government told us to stay at home, so I'm not touched by the virus, but I know some, an old person who are touched by the virus. And I have a friend who is working in the hospital in the care units and she explained to me what the media is hiding and what's the truth behind this virus.

Safelyhq:
What area does your friend work in the hospital? And what is she seeing?

Maroy:
She's living in the South of France, Toulouse and she's in the care units. So she's working closely with the people who are in the worst situation in the hospital. So she see's a lot of cases everyday and everyday she's told me that it's worse.

Safelyhq:
Some of the materials state that it's mostly older people that are impacted, is that what she's seeing?

Maroy:
So at first in the media, they say that only old people and fragile persons who have a disease are impacted. But now this is not the truth. Now,people who are 23 years old, 25, 30 are impacted.

Safelyhq:
Have you heard anything about testing? Is it hard to get testing or is it easy to get testing?

Maroy:
Yes. One week ago I was talking with my doctor and we were talking about the virus and he told me, you know, we are talking a lot with the other doctors and I can tell you right now that we don't have in France,no testing, no tests anymore. We don't know if a person has a flu, if it's simple flu or the coronavirus and when he told me that I was really anxious because even the doctors can't diagnose now if this only a flu or if it's worse.

Safelyhq:
At the hospital, where your friend works? Is there enough room for people or are they worried about how much space they have?

Maroy:
No, unfortunately not. Now they are transferring patients to another hospital to welcome the patients who are infected by the virus. And I also heard that in some hospitals they are taking the children's room. So the services reserved for children, they are transferred to the care unit because they do not have enough room for them. They don't have enough places now.

Safelyhq:
Is there anyone that you know of or any people that you are aware ofthat directly, or through friends or family that have been diagnosed with coronavirus?

Maroy:
Yes, the cousin of my husband has been diagnosed so she's at home. She can't be at the hospital because there are too many people and they said that if she don't have struggle to breathe, she needs to stay at home. The government said that you can call emergency, only if you're struggling to breathe, if you should just have fever. Or a cough if you cough you stay at home, but really if you can't breathe you can call the emergency.

Safelyhq:
So now that you've had experience in France with coronavirus, and hearing about your husband's cousin and your friend at the hospital, what's your feeling about coronavirus and how serious it is? Are you concerned now that you have had direct impact?

Maroy:
Yes. I'm really mad get the government because they they take that too easily. They didn't do the right things at the beginning. People need to understand that this is really, really serious. And I'm pretty anxious because now yesterday I was doing shopping, so just to buy food and the all people in the grocery was afraid was wearing masks and there was nothing, people were struggling to find some pasta or something like that. And I'm really mad because we can see that a lot and a lot of people are infected by the virus. My friend who is nurse, is really afraid, she's really anxious, she's really scared to have it. She's pregnant and she needs to work even if she's pregnant. And I'm really mad against the government for that. I'm sure that if it took the good decision at the right time, they would not have a lot of cases like right now.

Safelyhq:
Is there any message that you have for people listening based on what you've learnt so far?

Maroy:
Don't take that too lightly. This is really my word, don't take that too lightly. When I see that in UK, they say that they are counting on the auto immunity of people. I just don't understand. If I have a thing to say it, don't shake hands, don't hug someone, wash your hands carefully, and just take it this really, really seriously. Because this is not a simple flu. It's bigger than that.
