The day after most health restrictions were lifted, the number of COVID-19 pollutants in France rose to more than 116,000, according to France’s data released on Tuesday.
Since Monday, anyone can access cinemas, theaters, restaurants … without justifying the vaccine pass, and the mask has fallen on shops, schools and culture and leisure places.
These relief measures were announced by the French government in early March when the strong and long fifth wave of the epidemic was clearly waning, but this is no longer the case.
Labs have registered 116,618 positive cases since Monday. The average daily seven-day daily since last Friday has risen to more than 60,000 cases. It was 69,249 on Tuesday.
The number of patients admitted to the hospital remained stable (20,919), but the number of hospital admissions in seven days increased very little. With 1,783 patients, the pressure in the intensive care unit continues to decrease.
The total death toll in France since the outbreak began two years ago is 140,440, with the disease killing 146 people in hospitals within 24 hours.
Vaccination is stagnant because 80.5% of the total population has received at least one dose of the vaccine.
The government has now decided to open a fourth vaccine for those over 80 years of age.
The mask is mandatory in transportation and healthcare companies and companies can always decide to impose it on their employees.
