French President Emmanuel Macron has told his citizens that they’ll need to be vaccinated to visit bars and board trains, and health workers face mandatory Covid-19 jabs. Macron will also push ahead with unpopular pension reforms.
Macron announced that coronavirus vaccinations will be mandatory for healthcare workers in France, and a “health pass” proving vaccination status, or a negative test for Covid-19, will be necessary to board a train or visit restaurants, theaters, bars and cinemas.
Around 36% of France’s 67 million people have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, but the number of new Corona-virus cases has been rising steadily since the beginning of July, driven by the more contagious Delta variant.
Reuters noted on Monday that France has an “entrenched” anti-vaccine movement that will likely be unhappy with Macron’s aggressive vaccination drive.
Macron’s proposed pension reforms, likely involve raising France’s retirement age and merging the country’s 42 separate pension regimes into a single points-based system, which already triggered widespread protests and rioting.
