Faced with the variants, Delfraissy recommends to the elderly and fragile a “self-isolation” of two months.


For the President of the Scientific Council, this individual quarantine must remain voluntary.

Invited this Sunday sir on the antenna of BFMTV, the president of the Scientific Council Jean-François Delfraissy detailed several points related to the coronavirus pandemic in France. According to him, “it will probably be necessary to go towards containment” because of the different variants of Covid-19, which according to the infectious disease specialist “completely change the situation.”

“It’s up to them to decide”

In addition, still according to the latter, the next few months will be quite hard despite the vaccination which this weekend exceeded the million inoculated patients. In fact, Jean-François Delfraissy calls on the most fragile French to protect themselves.

“It seems to me that in the next two months, the recommendation for the oldest, most fragile people, to move towards what I would call a form of voluntary self-isolation, wanted on their part, to protecting in particular against the English variants, and perhaps other variants, while waiting for them to be vaccinated “, is an interesting possibility, he believes.

However, the immunologist is well aware that this decision must remain individual, and raises several ethical points.

“It touches on a certain form of freedom, except that it is up to them to decide. It will never be compulsory,” he added.

This is not the first time that this hypothesis has been mentioned, since several opinions of the Scientific Council already proposed this self-containment.
