France's lower house suspends review of Covid-19 vaccine pass bill


France's lower house of parliament has suspended debates over a bill to make it mandatory for people to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination to go to a restaurant or cinema or take the train. Tense discussions of the new law, which would remove the option of showing a negative test result instead of having the innoculations, were halted after midnight on Monday after a majority of deputies voted to suspend the session. FRANCE 24's International Affairs Editor Armen Georgian tells us more.

  • COVID-19 in France: As gov't weighs vaccine pass, health minister expresses newfound optimism

    Dr. Jean-Jacques Zambrowski, Hospital Physician and Professor of Public Health Management, agrees with French Health Minister Olivier Véran that there is light at the end of the tunnel, despite the "number of active cases increasing dramatically." Dr. Zambrowski points to the low number of Covid patients currently in ICU as well as the very low number of deaths. "I think that the minister was right to say that, maybe, we could be at the last episode of the story." Nevertheless, Dr. Zambrowski wholeheartedly embraces the French government's strategy of phasing out health passes in favor of vaccination certificates to access most public places. "Absolutely, there is nothing else to be done. There is no real treatment, the clinical studies show no efficacy. Therefore, all that can be done," explains Dr. Zambrowski, is to get vaccinated, "wash your wands, put on a mask, and so on."
