French Health Minister Olivier Veran announced a set of measures taken by the authorities during a meeting supervised by President Emmanuel Macron to tackle the new wave of the Corona epidemic in the country. Among these measures, it is necessary to vaccinate with a third dose of the anti-Coronavirus vaccine for all persons aged 18 years and over.
The Minister of Health also announced a reduction in the validity period of PCR tests in France from 72 hours to 24 hours. The minister ruled out re-imposing a quarantine or a complete closure to confront the fifth wave of the epidemic.
The number of infections detected daily in France exceeded 30,000, and the health authorities recorded the spread of the epidemic at an accelerating pace.
