  • Tourists can't witness Kenya’s annual wildebeest migration amid pandemic

    Maasai Mara (Kenya), 17 Aug (EFE), (Camera: Patricia Martínez).- Far away from the horror of the coronavirus pandemic, one and a half million wildebeest gather on the banks of Kenya’s Mara river, poised for the annual leap of faith toward pastures new. One of the greatest spectacles in the natural world, the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara in southern Kenya normally serves as a popular tourist attraction. This year, under the spectre of the pandemic, few tourists were present to witness the phenomenon.

  • Eating disorders on the rise in France amid Covid-19 pandemic

    As some people cope with the anxiety and uncertainty generated by the Covid-19 pandemic by focusing on diet and exercise, eating disorders are on the rise. In France, the influx of cases is pushing already stretched resources to their limits. France's association for anorexia and bulimia, the Fédération Française Anorexie Boulimie (FFAB), describes the situation as "critical". Calls to its helpline were up 30 percent last year. FRANCE 24's Ellen Gainsford met with eating disorder sufferers and specialists to find out more.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
