Didier Raoult : interviewed by BFMTV, the doctor made the show

Asked on BFMTV on 3 June, professor Raoult has increased the "short sentences" and the about controversial. The famous infectiologist is also the subject of a report to the prosecutor's office of Marseille.

[updated June 04, 2020 at 15h57] The Pr Raoult, director of the IHU Marseille, was the guest of Margaux de Frouville and Ruth Elkrief sur BFMTV Wednesday, June 3, 2020. Interviewed on "the care before the search", the infectious diseases physician showed that he didn't like to be upset : "Shhh ! Shut up, you ! You asked me a question, then I will answer you." According to the Pr Raoult, it was necessary to manage the crisis of the sars coronavirus "like the war". He justified : "there is a time for everything, for the care, manage the crisis and to research." "The ethics of the doctor, it is a treat given the state of his or her knowledge, the state of the science, taking the least possible risk to his patient," insisted the researcher.

The two journalists were also referred to the egotism suspected of the director of the IHU. In a recent YouTube video, he assured us : "I'm a star infectious disease, I have a course that is a dream to just about anyone. [...] It is I, the elite !" Has the antenna BFMTV, he said : "The megalomania, those who speak are those who are unable to see the greatness. You can always say that de Gaulle or Churchill were megalomaniacs. I he was unconcerned by."

in addition, according to the Canard Enchaîné, Didier Raoult has been the subject of a report to the prosecutor's office of Marseille. A colleague would be at the origin of this approach. He accuses the director of the IHU to have been prescribed hydroxychloroquine to patients without their consent. This practice is contrary to the loi Jardé in 2012, which provides for a sentence of three years imprisonment and a fine of 45 000 euros. As a result, the national security Agency of the drug was investigated and concluded that the "terms and conditions of information and traceability of the motivation of the limitation period are not in line with legal requirements." As well, the MAN has seized the national council of the College of physicians. The IHU Marseille has certified as to him having "complied with all of the legality."

A new study on 3 737 patients

on Wednesday 27 may 2020, the famous infectiologist has published a new study on its protocol-based hydroxychloroquine (HC) and Azithromycin (AZ). "We report, retrospectively, the clinical management of 3 737 patients, of whom 3 054 (81,7 %) treated with HCQ-AZ for at least three days and 683 (18,3 %) patients treated with other methods ", is it exposed on the website of the IHU Marseille. The average age of the subjects was "45 years, 45 % were male and the mortality rate was 0.9 %." The authors insisted : "neither torsades de pointes (ED, heart rhythm disorders), nor sudden deaths have been reported." Convinced by their response to treatment, the medical team concluded : "An early diagnosis, an early isolation and early treatment with at least three days hydroxychloroquine-Azithromycin used to obtain a clinical outcome and a contagiousness significantly better in patients with Covid-19 than the other treatments." According to them, the next challenge will be "the long-term monitoring of the screening of fibrosis [editor's NOTE : pulmonary infection]."

This new publication comes at a time when the decree authorising the prescription of chloroquine against the coronavirus has been repealed. This setback is consistent with the results of a study on chloroquine in the Lancet. The antiviral drug would be ineffective against the Covid-19 and potentially toxic.

"The future is always unpredictable."

beyond the topic of chloroquine, opinions and little consensus Didier Raoult are causing controversy. For several weeks, the researcher ensures that the epidemic is "coming to an end". It has récemmentr reaffirmed with upright positioning. The professor explained that the majority of seasonal illnesses have a curve in "U" and the Covid-19 is no exception. According to Didier Raoult, there will be no " second wave "for reasons highly complex and extremely difficult to understand." However, when asked about a resurgence of the epidemic in the stand-alone, the virologist has shown himself to be prudent : "the future is always unpredictable."

On the political front, the director of the IHU welcomed the decision of the government to have put in place the containment. "If the containment has helped to manage the fear, then it was a very, very good political decision. It has prevented dangerous driving", he said. In addition, the Pr Raoult has swept away all political ambitions. He said : "If I had to do the policy, I would have been. It is an insult, moreover, to think that I could do politics, because that would mean that I am not doing my job."

"star world"

This son of a military doctor is a man of ideas and positions, prior to exposure to the general public for his work on the chloroquine. Infectious diseases physician had issued notice polemics, particularly on the global warming. Recently in the Obs, it was justified : "I am a stoic. The only thing that matters is the esteem of myself. With my experience and that of my family, even if the majority of people say that something is true, I give myself the right to doubt and put everything in question. The global warming, as a perscourt, I don't see it. My job is to be lucid." In 2016, in a column published in The Point, the director of the laboratory took a position against the ban of the veil in the universities. "My laboratory of the faculty of medicine of la Timone, in Marseille, currently has 115 foreign level course thesis and post-doctoral students. Among those, women wear a headscarf, others are in a miniskirt and fishnet stockings, and everyone is working together," he said.
