The myth that the French state is dealing with the scabies epidemic following Immigration Minister Besson's statement yesterday that he was ordering showers and scabies treatment for "as long as it takes" is shown up for the bullshit it is in this message from a migrant who spoke with people who had visited the clinic where the showers have been set up: "Today afternoon I saw migrants coming from the PASS medical clinic, which is open every weekday afternoon. I asked them what was going on up there, they just told there were four new showers. They give you a scabies spray in case of need, or if you've got itching skin or something like that, but no showers allowed without excuse only for those who have scabies. France is the first country that treat scabies with showers ! haha that seem funny for me... and the migrants think this will work! I already told them it is a normal bath, which isn't effective in the removal of scabies or even a proper treatment." Read more about the planned Medecins du Monde scabies operation that this manouevre by the French government seems intent on undermining. Also our concerns about this operation being used to not just clean up but also clear out the jungles in Calais.Painted message appeared on main roundabout from Calais ferry port. English: "BORDERS = SUFFERING"
