For health workers, the Tour de France pandemic is a big demand


NICE, France (AP) – Running around Nice, in southern France, this weekend, Tour de France riders will pass a hospital where health workers are traumatized by their battle with the coronavirus. Among them, Maude Leneveu, a caregiver who spent two months treating patients with and dying from COVID-19. She cleaned their bedpans, changed their sheets, fed them and tried to calm their fears. Then she would go home to breastfeed her baby girl. She obtained a bonus of 1,500 euros for this hospital heroism. Racers can easily do this and more in an afternoon at the Tour. French health workers are divided over the race and some say it should have been canceled.
