Seven employees of the Millennium clinic in Montpellier would have contaminated each other during a private party at the end of July. For the moment, all the contact cases detected, often patients, are negative.
Seven employees of the Millennium Clinic tested positive for coronavirus after a private party at the end of July. The information was confirmed by Christelle Béchard this Thursday, August 13, deputy director of the clinic, who confided in our colleagues from Free Midi. “There is indeed a cluster of seven employees, including five nursing staff. They contaminated each other, with a community origin, since they had a private party, outside, all together, on July 30,” declared the deputy director. She specifies that the positive cases “are part of an age group of 25 to 40 years” and that they “were detected” Friday August 7. “Only two people were symptomatic.”
No contamination in the Millennium
For the moment, no contamination is to be noted at the Millennium. “All the patients they took care of, in all the departments concerned, have been tested and we have no positive patients”, rejoices Christelle Béchard. Larger-scale screenings are currently being carried out within the clinic. “We decided, three days ago, to test the entire staff of the clinic” assured the deputy director. According to information from Free Midi, that’s almost 300 tests. Again, among these tests performed, those whose results are already known are negative.
In addition, the clinic has introduced new, stricter measures. “We have taken the decision to re-screen visitors at the entrance to the clinic and have limited visits to one person per day per patient” announced the management.
