President Ramaphosa vaccinated as South Africa begins Covid-19 inoculation campaign

Description

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa gets vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine in Khayelitsha township, Cape Town. South Africa has started its vaccination drive after a delayed start caused by concerns about the ability of the Oxford-AstraZeneca formula to shield against a widespread variant of the virus. Health care workers were the first to receive the vaccine. IMAGES

  • Covid-19: South African variant takes devastating toll on Madagascar

    Madagascar is facing a second deadly wave of Covid-19, as the South African variant spreads across the island nation. In the past month, almost 13,000 infections and 250 deaths have been recorded, according to official figures that are likely a vast underestimate. The situation is spiralling out of control and has been worsened by shortages of oxygen and medicine, with hospitals overwhelmed. Meanwhile, the authorities are downplaying the gravity of the situation. The first vaccines are due to arrive at the end of the week in Madagascar. Our correspondent Gaëlle Borgia reports.

  • 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.
