There are 10,949 new coronavirus infections in France according to today’s data. According to reports from the local health authorities, there are also 16 deaths, while 890 patients are hospitalized in intensive care.
Starting from midnight on Sunday, France requires the result of an anti Covid test carried out less than 24 hours before for those who are not vaccinated and come from Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Greece and the Netherlands. This was announced today by Prime Minister Jean Castex. At present, those arriving from Great Britain must have a test carried out no less than 48 hours before and from other European countries 72, as required by the rules for granting the Green pass in force throughout the European Union.
Meanwhile, almost 114 thousand people took to the streets today in France against the measures announced last Monday by the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron. This was announced by the Ministry of the Interior, specifying that about 18 thousand people demonstrated in Paris. The measures announced by Macron foresee, from the beginning of August, the obligation of a health pass in transport (airplanes, buses and trains), to enter restaurants, bars and the obligation of vaccination for health personnel.
