Here they go again. Staff at this coronavirus unit are at the epicenter of France's second wave, here in Marseille.
But the mood has changed -- to one of frustration.
Director David Fleyrat had almost cleared his private unit of coronavirus cases. Now it's filling up again.
"We accept doing our jobs, but we don't accept having to do our jobs because people did not respect the right social distancing rules, or the rules on wearing masks. That's totally unacceptable. We take risks with our staff, we take risks with everyone, because they have not respected the rules."
Marseille's spiralling cases have filled the southern city's intensive care wards, so private hospitals like this one are handling the overflow.
ICU doctor Jean-Gabriel Castagnedoli says last time, staff were willing to venture into the unknown. Not now.
"For the second wave, the atmosphere is not the same at all, because the staff are a little less willing, they do not want to go through it again, having not fully recovered from the first wave."
That said, at least there are enough face masks and gloves this time around.
Nurse Nathalie Roche says lessons learnt last time bring some reassurance:
"It's true that we already know what to expect, we know how to handle the care a little better, so we are more at ease. But psychologically, of course, it's still an extra weight, although we have sufficient equipment, we have the necessary masks, we have the necessary materials, we have the necessary personnel."
