7:02 pm
yes, sir. the french health minister, talking about a veritable tidal wave of infection sweeping across france. you heard him there 208000 new cases in the last 24 hours filled by delta fuel by all micron. and of course, those just the cases that have been detected because there are possibly many others he says that have gone undetected. and what the french government wants to do, of course, is stop at the spread of the virus they are trying to. and looking at ways to tighten restrictions. i even further most notably they want to try and convert the current cov, it pass into a vaccination pass. and what that means is that people would only be able to access certain leisure facilities, like restaurants, bars, animals, theaters, and even catch a train if they can prove that they are fully vaccinated. in other words, proof of a recent negative cova test would no longer be something that they could use. so really a tightening restrictions in that way. some people say that's
7:03 pm
a controversial measure, but what the government is saying is that there are some 5000000 people that are still unvaccinated in france, that they are really the ones that often end up in the hospital. and this is a way of trying to maybe motivate them to go and get jap, tightening restrictions, implementing new laws. natasha, we know there were certain parts of the, of french society that like to push back on this, they're not happy with that. you might say freedoms being curtailed, so 11 does how these restrictions all laws will be received in the long term will ever send sierra french or prime minister. i shall cast ex 1st mentioned the idea of a vaccination pass last week. there certainly been a lot of people who have voiced that opposition to it. it is a controversial measure. not there. francis, highest legal bodies even got involved are saying to the government that they need to be careful. they mustn't a road people's freedom. freedom, for example,
