法国议会已最终批准政府应对 Covid-19 的最新措施, 包括反疫苗抗议者质疑的疫苗通行证.
议会下院议员投票 215 in favour to 58 against on Sunday, paving the way for the law to enter force in the coming days.
The new law, which had a rough ride through parliament, with opposition parties finding some of its provisions too tough, will require people to have a certificate of vaccination to enter public places such as restaurants, cafes, cinemas and long-distance trains.
Currently, unvaccinated people can enter such places with the results of a recent negative Covid-19 test. 几乎 78% of the population is fully vaccinated, according to the health ministry on Saturday.
埃马纽埃尔·马克龙, who is expected to seek a second term in April’s presidential election, told Le Parisien this month that he wanted to “piss off” unvaccinated people by making their lives so complicated they would end up getting the Covid vaccine.
Thousands of anti-vaccine protesters demonstrated in Paris and some other cities on Saturday against the law, but their numbers were down sharply from the week before, just after Macron’s remarks.
France is in the grips of its fifth Covid-19 wave, with daily new cases regularly hitting record levels above 300,000. 然而, the number of intensive care admissions is much lower than in the first wave in 2020.
