  • Salvadorans vote in atypical elections amid pandemic

    San Salvador, Feb 28 (EFE).- Salvadorans came out Sunday to vote in atypical elections, marked by slowness, delay and the COVID-19 pandemic. The delay in the delivery of the accreditations from the Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) to members of the ruling party New Ideas (Nueva Ideas in Spanish) to join the polling stations have delayed the opening of the 1,595 voting centers, in some cases by more than two hours. The virus and the waiting, however, did not intimidate dozens of grandparents who came to vote hand in hand with their children. Some arrived in wheelchairs, while others came with crutches and leaning on canes. (Camera: VLADIMIR CHICAS). SHOT LIST: PEOPLE ARRIVE TO VOTE AT THE POLLING STATION IN SAN SALVADOR, EL SALVADOR.

  • 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.
