COVID, WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY
France, green pass in outdoor restaurants – Since yesterday in France, the green pass is required to access trains, restaurants (also outdoors) and hospitals after the approval of the Council of State and despite the growing protests in the streets. The so-called “health pass” – which certifies the successful vaccination, or a negative test of less than 72 hours, or the recovery from Covid for less than 6 months – was already required from 21 July to go to the cinema, theater or museum. “The objective of the health pass in transport is to encourage vaccination and to preserve freedom,” explained the Minister of Transport, Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, on radio France Inter this morning. Controls in transport “will be massive”, even if “they will not be systematic because 400,000 passengers a day travel on the trains”, he added, announcing that there will be “a week of running in”. Those who are not in good standing risk a 135 euro fine.
