The French government will include in the bill governing this stage of the pandemic a 10-day isolation obligation for positive cases, including a health card from August in restaurants and cinemas.
Also, mandatory vaccination for certain professional categories such as doctors and nurses will remain in the diploma, as well as for all other people who work in hospitals, nursing homes or clinics, such as administrative staff.
This project also anticipates the possibility of closing all establishments that do not respect the use of the health card, which proves full vaccination or a negative test.
At the same time, there were demonstrations in several French cities against the introduction of this corridor, stating that the procedure was a “dictatorship”.
The number of cases in France has risen again in recent days, with 8,875 new cases confirmed since Tuesday. The average number of cases has risen to more than 5,000, while in recent weeks it has been less than 2,000. In the past 24 hours, six people in France have died from the virus.
There are currently 7,047 people admitted to French hospitals due to COVID-19 and 931 of these patients have been admitted to intensive care units.
The COVID-19 pandemic has killed at least 4,053,041 people worldwide, among more than 187.7 million cases of the novel coronavirus, according to AFP’s latest balance sheet.
