As The Number Of Incidents Rises France Introduces The Covid App Which Is Required To Attend Movies And Museums

In order to visit cultural venues and tourist places such as the Eiffel Tower, movies, museums, and sporting events, people in France will be forced to produce proof of their Covid vaccine or a negative test starting today.
The “passe sanitaire,” or health pass, will be implemented in a restricted number of areas on Wednesday in response to what the government has described as a “stratospheric” increase in Delta variant infections.
From the beginning of August, it will be extended to a wide range of public venues, including long-distance trains, bars, restaurants, and shopping malls.
The health pass certifies that a person has been vaccinated against Covid-19, has had a recent negative coronavirus test, or has recently recovered from the virus.
The government has reduced a planned 45,000 euro fine for businesses that fail to check that clients have a health permit to up to 1,500 euros, with penalties escalating progressively for repeat offenders.
The French president, Emmanuel Macron, unveiled the plan a week ago, as infections increased and vaccination rates declined.
In addition, France intends to make Covid-19 immunizations mandatory for health workers, as well as requiring persons who test positive for coronavirus to self-isolate for 10 days.
Officials in France have warned that the virus is nearing its fourth wave, with the Delta form spreading swiftly.
In a 24-hour period on Tuesday, France registered 18,181 new illnesses, more than double the level from a week ago.
