In Caen (Calvados), place Jean Nouzille, the screening center is not yet open, but already a hundred people are present in the queue. All came to be tested but since Tuesday, September 15, the center no longer has the right to do more than 100 tests per day. The laboratory is behind schedule and wants to guarantee results available within 24 hours. The ordinance has since become mandatory.
“A break in care”
The patients’ misunderstanding causes tension, so the police make patrols to help the nursing staff. “It is difficult to close, we are attacked daily by people who do not understand why we close at 7 pm”, regrets Johanna Roy, nurse in Caen. “What is most scandalous is that there is a breakdown in care, deplores Sébastien Barbier, president of the association Urgences Infirmières 14. People decide not to go for testing anymore and not stand in line for three or four hours. “
