Didier Raoult spoke in an interview about his departure from the IHU Méditerranée infection. He also gave his opinion on the vaccination against Covid-19 as well as on the summons of Agnès Buzyn before the Court of Justice of the Republic.

In an interview with BFM TV, Professor Didier Raoult spoke on subjects such as vaccination against Covid-19 or the health pass, but also on his functions within the IHU of Marseille.

Asked about his departure from the University Hospital Institute for Infectious Diseases of Marseille (IHU), Didier Raoult said he intended to stop his duties as director “now”, but that the scientific council and the board of directors have asked to postpone this departure for a year given the Covid-19 epidemic. “In a year I think, that’s what I planned … I will leave the functions of director of the IHU”, confirmed the doctor, ensuring that by then he will have the support of the president of the ‘establishment.

Didier Raoult also declared that he was not “shocked” by the summons of the former Minister of Health Agnès Buzyn before the Court of Justice of the Republic as part of the investigation into the government’s management of the health crisis.

He then said that “people who die should have been vaccinated” because “the population that dies is the population that we know is dying, the population at risk.” “I think this vaccine is protective, protects from 50 to 60% against infections,” said Didier Raoult, before declaring that a third dose seemed “reasonable” for people at risk. In response to a question asking him if he was vaccinated, Didier Raoult kicked in touch: “It’s still none of your business […] I am for medical confidentiality, I never betray it ”. However, he said he had a health pass.
