Government spokesman Gabriel Attal warned on Wednesday that it would be “completely unfair” to curtail efforts against Kovid-19, as the French “may pay dear for any kind of waiver”.
“After the former Council of Ministers meeting, Mr. Atal said,” The situation remains so fragile that nothing can suppress it “and” vigilance remains in order “as the hospital pressure is very strong.
As expected, the spokesperson did not announce new restrictions, as pollution has stabilized to a higher level in the past two weeks.
He once again praised the “very large responsibility of the French”, who are “particularly capable of cheating”, especially among the many scientists who expected the situation to worsen due to the presence of variants of the virus.
Faced with an “unforeseen epidemic”, he insisted, considering the relaxation of restrictions and the reopening in certain areas such as catering or cultural venues, he insisted, specifying that Health Minister Olivier Veran will do another update. Thursday
The number of new cases is more than 18,000 per day on average compared to the previous week and the number of hospitalized patients in intensive care was 3,338 on Tuesday, the highest for a week.
Gabriel Attal also said “understand the frustration of over 75” who “often wait for the vaccine as a delivery”. “The rate of production, distribution and opening appointments everywhere in the world is not equal”, he said, adding that “mechanics were on their way” “to speed up”.
He said that 75% of nursing home residents and at least 20% of those over 75 had received at least one dose.
