Unvaccinated ppl should not be treated on public health insurance: Head of Paris hospitals

PARIS: The head of the Paris hospitals system has set off a fierce debate by questioning whether people who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19 should continue to have their treatment covered by public health insurance.

“When free and efficient drugs are available, should people be able to renounce it without consequences while we struggle to take care of other patients?” Paris AP-HP hospitals system chief Martin Hirsch said on French television on Wednesday.

Hirsch said he raised the issue because health costs are exploding and the irresponsible behaviour of some should not jeopardise the availability of the system for everyone else.
