Thanks to Lucie Lecomte for sending the link to this report from FranceTVinfo: Ebola: the Ministry of Health denounced the "false statements" and "irresponsible" of Balkany. The Google translation:
Patrick Balkany quoted "reliable medical sources" and wanted an explanation from the government. The Department of Health responded, Tuesday, Aug. 12, denouncing the statements "false" and "irresponsible" the UMP deputy mayor of Levallois-Perret (Hauts-de-Seine). It stated on its website that several cases of people infected with the virus Ebola have been reported on the French territory.
These statements are not only false, but they are especially irresponsible" insists the entourage of the Minister of Social Affairs and Health, Marisol Touraine. The Ebola epidemic raging in Africa, a "public health emergency of international concern" does not lend itself to "risky statements" , adds it to the ministry.
And reaffirm, "categorically and firm" , that there is, to date, no confirmed cases of Ebola in France and not, either, if "possible" under analysis.
