Two doctors from the Lille University Hospital offer tailor-made confinement.
According to them, there is no longer time to wait to confine but still remains the possibility of "choosing" confinement.
In March-April, the impact on the economy was far too important, hence the idea of "eco-compatible confinement".
Philippe Amouyel, professor of public health at the University Hospital of Lille, draws the outlines by imagining to "maintain a certain number of activities and access to schools, colleges and high schools as well as public transport but to change the hours working ".
"Extend teleworking as much as possible"
The idea is to preserve the activity of companies, "those which can", and to ask them "to extend teleworking as much as possible".
"Finally," explains Professor Amouyel, "for everything that is commerce, the idea is to maintain only essential businesses".
To these recommendations are added the cancellation of all private and public meetings and a systematic exit certificate.

According to Lille doctors, all these restrictions must be territorialized.
There is no need to confine an area where the virus does not circulate much.
With such measures, these doctors estimate that in 3 to 4 weeks, it is possible to regain control over the epidemic, that is to say to return to 4,000 or 5,000 contaminations per day and thus save the end of holidays. year.
