Asked about the speech of the President of the Republic, he said that after the month of effort by the French, setting a horizon for the end of confinement was essential.
On the question of the resumption of business activity, we need a big plan in particular to save the hotel, catering and tourism in general. Among the Republicans, we make a very opposite proposal that can be adopted as early as Friday in the financing bill: cancel the charges during the time of confinement for hotels, cafes that have been closed since March 12.
With all the Republicans, we want to go further in the acts, especially for small local shops that do not have access to the credit assistance conditions because refused by the banks. We want the government loan guarantee to go from 80% to 100%, as is the case in Germany.
In addition, there are still many gray areas, in particular regarding the government’s ability to generalize the tests and provide sufficient masks.
Above all, we must continue to demand large-scale screening of nursing staff and residents of our nursing homes, who are particularly affected by the COVID-19 virus.
