"Guadeloupe, Guyanese, Martinican, Réunion: it is urgent to get vaccinated!
We, scientists, doctors from Guadeloupe, Guyana, Martinique and Reunion and / or invested in these territories, call on Guadeloupeans, Guyanese, Martinicans and Reunionese and all those who live there, to be vaccinated in faster against Covid given the health disaster in which we are. We hope that this call will enable our people to overcome their fears, disinformation, fake news, and the widely spread scientific untruths.
Indeed, the number of infected patients in our territories is experiencing a very worrying increase in the wake of Martinique, where the incidence rate of infection exceeded the bar of 1 case per 100 inhabitants at the end of July, i.e. 5 times more than the national average; our populations have a major risk of developing severe forms of COVID-19 due to the high prevalence of overweight / obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and also the existence of a large proportion of people over the age of 60; the resuscitation services are already saturated: air medical transfers to Paris of COVID-19 patients with medical care and artificial ventilation began on Saturday, July 31 in order to relieve the intensive care unit in Martinique.
The fight against COVID-19 in our territories has become a health emergency!
We, scientists, doctors from Guadeloupe, Guyana, Martinique and Reunion and / or invested in these territories, having ourselves received a complete vaccination, affirm that all the anti-COVID-19 vaccines authorized: have followed all the scientific steps allowing them to be approved by national and international drug agencies; have an efficacy rarely obtained with other vaccines, in particular “messenger RNA” vaccines, against the occurrence of severe forms, hospitalizations and death; are accompanied, on the basis of data obtained after more than a billion people completely vaccinated in the world, and after 8 months of follow-up, by extremely rare serious non-toxic side effects.
Remember that most drugs have side effects; will allow us to permanently avoid hospitalizations, particularly in intensive care, death, respiratory consequences, pain and others.
We scientists, doctors from Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyana and Reunion and / or invested in these territories, specify that today: this infection with SARS-Coronavirus type 2, responsible for COVID-19, no. it is not a specific Guadeloupe, Guyanese, Martinican or Reunionese situation: it is a pandemic and the whole world is concerned; many developing countries are in desperate demand for vaccines, as the epidemic mainly targets unvaccinated people from all continents; the maximum number of human beings must be vaccinated in order to avoid the emergence of more formidable variants than those currently circulating.
Get vaccinated! It is the best weapon to defeat this pandemic! "
