Research Ethics in Pandemics and Health Emergencies
Numerous ethical questions have emerged since mid-March 2020 in France as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. The research issues are tested and questioned despite the indisputable results since the year 2021. During this pandemic, the boundaries of research methodology have been broken and many treatments and vaccines have been promoted to patients and authorities without maximum scientific integrity. Between a scientific race on the side of physician-researchers and the methodology of the urgency to provide care, it is interesting to take to stock of the respect of research methodology and its pre-tests, its limits with regard to the emergency and the autonomy of research ethics.
