On Wednesday in France, a new health passport for coronavirus came into force, as this country faces new cases of infection.
From now on people have to prove that they have been vaccinated, tested negative or cured of the coronavirus, so that they can enter most cinemas and museums.
Later in the day, lawmakers will debate whether such a measure would also apply to accessing cafes, restaurants and shopping malls.
The measure comes into effect after French Health Minister Olivier Véran reported 18,000 new cases of infection in just 24 hours.
That compares with less than 7,000 cases per day last week, an increase of 150 percent.
“We have not seen anything like this before,” he told the National Assembly, adding that the Delta variant is increasing the number of cases significantly faster than the other variants.
The French president, Emmanuel Macron, announced this month the decision on the health passport, as well as the mandatory vaccination for all health workers, until September.
As a result, more than 100,000 French people protested on Saturday and severely damaged two vaccination centers. After vaccination obligations, Macroni is compared to Hitler
Out of dissatisfaction with the new measures, a photomontage has been set up on the street where French President Emmanuel Macron appears in the uniform and appearance of Germany’s notorious Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. The poster reads “Apply, get vaccinated”, while also showing the coat of arms of the Nazis, modified with the initials of the French president.
Surveys show considerable reluctance to get vaccinated in this state.
