The Covid-19 epidemic is starting again in France. According to the latest epidemiological report from the National Public Health Agency, the virus continues to progress in France “with an increase in new hospitalizations, while vaccination coverage for booster doses remains significantly insufficient”. Faced with the resurgence of the pandemic, the government has put in place a draft law, relayed by the Atlantico site and confirmed to AFP by the Ministry of Health.
This text provides for the establishment of a border pass on arrival in France, whether in mainland France, Corsica or overseas territories. Thus, the head of government may require the presentation of a health pass from the age of 12 to “move to or from French territory, Corsica or one of the communities”. As a reminder, the health pass can be in the form of a negative test, a recovery certificate or proof of vaccination.
The government would also like to create a committee for monitoring and anticipating health risks, attached to the Ministers of Health and Research. This body would be responsible for “giving opinions on the health situation and the scientific knowledge relating to it” and “formulating recommendations” in this direction. The draft law must still be discussed in the Council of State and then in the Council of Ministers.
In some departments, all the indicators are already red. This is the case of those you can find in our slideshow below.
