Many countries, including France, are facing a fifth wave of the epidemic. Follow all the news related to Covid-19 in France and around the world.
The National Consultative Ethics Committee (CCNE) has approved the initiation of vaccination every 5-11 years.
Faced with a dazzling fifth wave and a very contagious Omicron variant in ambush, the government convenes a new health defense council on Friday (4 p.m.) before perhaps announcing new measures by the holidays.
This defense council was decided on Wednesday by the Elysee. Government spokesman Gabriel Attal then did not rule out “new decisions by the end of the week (…) to take the necessary measures”. He had mentioned an acceleration of the vaccination campaign, the strengthening of border controls and the establishment of recommendations for family celebrations.
