“It’s defamation,” wrote, Sunday April 14 on Instagram, emergency physician Patrick Pelloux, accused by infectious disease specialist Karine Lacombe of moral and sexist harassment.

In a Paris Match investigation published Wednesday, Karine Lacombe, head of the infectious diseases hospital department at Saint-Antoine hospital in Paris, accused emergency media doctor Patrick Pelloux of “sexual and moral harassment”.

“I was stunned to learn (…) the accusations of K. Lacombe and the rumors relayed in this article, which I strongly contest,” writes Patrick Pelloux on Instagram. “This is defamation. I do not wish to react further today in order to preserve the serenity of useful debates around sexism and sexual violence.”
