As of Wednesday, May 18, he will be impossible for Bordeaux residents to go to this hospital between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m., except with the prior agreement of the Samu. The largest hospital center in the Gironde is suffocating. Attendance has increased by almost 50% since the start of the health crisis​, but many emergency physicians left their posts. This regulation system could reduce the number of admissions by around 30 patients each day​, and could be long term.
