TPMP: Didier Raoult reacts to his sidelining from IHU Marseille

Guest of Cyril Hanouna, this Monday, August 30, in the program “Touche pas à mon poste” (TPMP), Professor Didier Raoult notably returned to his exclusion from the University Hospital Institute (IHU) of Marseilles.

Aged 69, the director of IHU Méditerranée Infection officially reached retirement age on August 31 as a university professor-hospital practitioner, and the AP-HM does not wish to extend his mandate.

The Director-General of Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Marseille, François Crémieux, who took office last July, recently confirmed the AP-HM’s desire to “turn the page” Didier Raoult.

The microbiologist, promoter of a controversial treatment of Covid-19 patients via a dual therapy combining hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, also took advantage of this interview to settle accounts with the latter.


“Clearly, there is a general manager who was the deputy general manager of Paris who came here (in Marseille, editor’s note) and who thought that he did not need my services, which he did well the right to think, ”he declared.

But “he dreams a little if he is able to impose that, because the IHU is created by a law, which has a board of directors in which there are 20 people who express themselves”.

After which he explained that one of the causes of his disagreement with François Crémieux “is that he wanted me to sign a platform which seems to me to be propaganda and which I do not want to do because it is not my role”.

“My role,” the microbiologist continued, “is not to say what the government is doing well or not well. My role is to say what I observe, what I read given my background ”.

“I do science and what interests me is looking at myself in my mirror at night without being ashamed of myself. I don’t do propaganda. ”

“He is angry with me a lot”

Last week, Didier Raoult also said in an interview with CNEWS that the director general “arrives to clean up” and that it is one of “the objects he would like to clean”.

“It is the great friend of Martin Hirsch (director general of the AP-HP, the Parisian public hospitals, Editor’s note), he added, and as I said what I thought of the management of Paris, who was absolutely appalling, he is very angry with me, ”he said.
