French President Emmanuel Macron denied the possibility of blocking unvaccinated people in France, claiming that due to the success of the Covid-19 “Health Pass”, this measure is not necessary.
Speaking to La Voix du Nord newspaper in an interview Publish On Thursday, Macron stated that there is no need for France to follow Austria’s approach and block unvaccinated citizens.
“Those countries that have blocked non-vaccinations are those countries that have not implemented vaccinations. [health] go through. Therefore, this step is not needed in France,” Macron claimed.
The President’s Health Pass received a lot of criticism when it was launched. It requires people to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative test before engaging in certain normal activities.
If citizens want to go to restaurants, cafes, cultural venues or movie theaters, they need a “hygiene pass.” In addition to other activities, long-distance trains are required.
In the face of a surge in Covid-19 cases, Austria took the lead in starting a partial lockdown of unvaccinated people. The Czech Republic will follow suit next week, and Germany on Thursday decided to take similar measures in areas where the Covid incident rate exceeds the threshold.
In early November, Macron continued to use the Covid Health Pass for people over 65 years old, depending on whether to receive booster injections.
Approximately 20,366 new infections Registered During the record period of the past 24 hours. The number of cases has risen sharply in recent weeks.
