Now France has imposed a travel ban on residents of the state without warning and in a significant cold, as the Omicron version is breaking all records on the island. So testing and quarantine periods are imposed, making trips at Christmas time and especially to ski areas or Provençal holiday homes unattractive or impossible. France hopes that isolation will save time and give it the advantage of control. But this is also part of the truth: the incidence rate in Great Britain is so high because more cases of the disease are determined by the origin of the virus. Thus the Omicron variant is recognized more often. Even France will not be able to hide from this variant. no one could.
In the second winter, for example, what has already been practiced a few times is repeated: the borders are closed, the shutters are down, camouflage security is pretended. Great Britain is the first to be hit because the country has been so surprisingly sealed and, above all, because Brexit-hit France, the fisheries dispute and Northern Ireland see no cause for reconciliation after the conflict.
