  • Unnecessary panic leads to lack of confidence in AstraZeneca's Covid-19 vaccine, researcher says

    London, March 19 (EFE), (Camera: Pilar Tomás).- The suspension of vaccination with AstraZeneca in a dozen European countries after registering several cases of thrombosis and embolisms contributed to an "unnecessary panic that can have a great negative impact on the vaccine confidence", warns Salvador Macip, a researcher at the University of Leicester. FOOTAGE OF LONDON.SOUNDBITES OF SALVADOR MACIP, RESEARCHER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LEICESTER: "Covid-19 vaccination campaign in Europe is going bad, much more slowly than expected. And the problem is that the number of those vaccinated will determine the level of restrictions, the level of normalcy that each country has. Europe will be slower than the countries which are going well, such as Israel, UK or the US.""How is it going to develop? It is difficult to know but what we know is that we will reach the solution to pandemic through vaccination."

  • 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.
