The French government wants the Corona permit to apply from January 15 only to people who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from the Corona infection, and it no longer applies to people who test positive. The passage of the aura Prime Minister Castix announced in a speech that this would become a permit for vaccination. Parliament has yet to approve the so-called 2G measure.
“In places where traffic is necessary, you have to show that you have been vaccinated to enter,” Castix said. This concerns, for example, the food industry or cultural institutions. “A negative test result is no longer acceptable.”
Castex also announced new corona measures due to the omikron variant. The French government fears that there will be 250,000 new cases of corona per day at the beginning of January. On Saturday, France reported more than 100,000 new cases, the highest number since the beginning of the epidemic.
Most of the measures will take effect on January 3. People are required to work from home at least three days a week, if possible with their work, and they are also not allowed to eat or drink in public transport, cinemas, theaters and sports complexes. Moreover, people are forced to sit in cafes and bars.
outdoor mouth covers
The number of people allowed to attend a meeting will be reduced to a maximum of 5,000 people outside and 2,000 inside. This also applies to sports complexes. City authorities may also make face masks mandatory outdoors in the city center. The procedures will be in place for at least three weeks.
Castex announced that as of tomorrow morning, three months after the last shot, the French can already demand a booster shot against the virus. This is now four months and previously it was five months. Moreover, Minister of Health Ferran does not rule out the possibility of a fourth injection.
The French government says the reopening of schools scheduled for January 3 will continue. Castex said there will be no curfew.
fake corona passes
The Prime Minister also announced that stricter measures will be taken against people who visit the Corona Card. Last week, French police reported that 182,000 fake copies had been found since the card was introduced last July.
Police deployed hundreds of people to track down the fake permits.
