France faces tougher COVID-19 restrictions: What you need to know
More than 20 French regions facing tougher Covid-19 restrictions starting Monday, as cases jump. The French Health authorities are monitoring the situation closely in the capital, Paris, and districts in northern France. The country introduced weekend lockdown in Nice and Dunkirk to help limit the spread of the pestiferous U.K variant.
France is already enforcing a nationwide curfew that spanning from 6 pm to 6 am, but officials have insinuated that more restrictions are likely to take place starting next week amid a very slow and unorganized vaccine plan. The country launched its vaccination campaign against Covid-19 back in December 2020, but due to the slow vaccination process, only about 2.5M individuals were able to receive their first shot, and that includes 920,000 people who had received the two doses required for full vaccination of the patient.
More than 64 million people are waiting for their turn to get their first shot. Until then, culture and sports venues, restaurants, bars, and cafes have to remain closed!
