French Health Minister Olivier Veran said on Sunday he wanted to unveil by summer a new support plan for French hospitals and health workers who have been on the frontline of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

In an interview with French Sunday weekly Le Journal Du Dimanche (JDD), Veran said consultations with social partners and health representatives would start from May 25.

“I want to go fast. I want the plan to be presented this summer, to include everything that can be presented in the next Social Security budget,” he said.

The new plan would increase the wages of health workers beyond recent bonuses awarded during the coronavirus crisis, he said.
