The minister of Agriculture Didier Guillaume is back this morning on FranceInfo on the situation of the slaughterhouses of france, where three outbreaks of contamination in coronavirus have been detected. For example, he announced that it would be possible to test all employees of slaughterhouses or to slow down the pace in some of them, if the health authorities requested it. On the other hand, he has not given much information on the reasons of the appearance of these outbreaks.read also : Coronavirus: in the Côtes-d'armor, the slaughterhouses of Kermené worry
"It is not yet known precisely why these three slaughterhouses have become foci of contamination, the regional agencies of health are in the process of working on it, he explained. However, it is thought that the contamination may have taken place in the locker room at the time of the change. We have tested all the employees of the three slaughterhouses concerned, but for the moment we don't have to put in place new protocol."
Didier Guillaume then explained that it would be possible to test "all employees of slaughterhouses in France", or "reduce the rates", if the regional agencies of health came to ask for it.seasonal workers in the eu for "fast harvest"
The minister of Agriculture was then questioned on the possibility, today, or tomorrow, Thursday, to bring in seasonal workers of the european Union to support the farmers in the harvest period. "In this time we need 100,000 seasonal workers per month, he explained. I have proposed to the prime minister to put in place the arrival of seasonal workers from the EU in the coming hours. These seasonal workers will be required to submit a health protocol strictly. They will not be tested before arriving in France but put in quatorzaine on the farm. In the fields, the workers will be at least a metre or two, and in the accommodations they will be staying over in the dorms. We need this european workforce. It is necessary to be able quickly to collect."read also : Coronaviruses in the slaughterhouse: is it safe to eat meat?
While some fruits and vegetables have seen their price skyrocket since the beginning of the confinement, Didier Guillaume has maintained that it wouldn't block the price to limit these outbursts. "Eating strawberries from Ventoux this is not the same price as the strawberries Spanish, but this is not the same taste either, he added. In spite of this I am aware that there is a problem of purchasing power. I do not want people to buy more expensive, so you need to know how it reduces the cost to buy (cheap), French and of excellent quality."
Finally, Didier Guillaume spoke of the wine-growing sector, very distressed with the closure of bars and restaurants, but also because of the tax of 25 % established by the United States on the French wine the end of 2019. "You need to put in place a solidarity fund specific and waivers of expenses to exceed the fee of 25 %", he said.The editorial team conseilleCoronavirus: in the Côtes-d'armor, the slaughterhouses of Kermené inquiètentCovid-19: more than 100 people infected in the abattoirsCoronavirus : more than 800 tests on Tuesday in an abattoir in Bretagne39 commentairesAnthony2237le 20/05/2020 20:09

D. Guillaume, you should be tested too, but it is his QI that there is a place to ask questions.
