Wednesday, 22 Jun 2022 5:47 PM MYT PARIS, June 22 — France is facing a new wave of Covid-19 infections fuelled by new variants of the disease, French vaccination chief Alain Fischer said today, as daily new cases reached an almost two-month peak the day before at more than 95,000. Speaking on France 2 television, he said there was no doubt there was once again an upsurge of the pandemic in the country, adding he was personally in favour of reinstating mandatory face mask wearing on public transport. Macron should fire his prime minister, some opponents said, after he earlier refused to accept her resignation, review his reform plans and drop his top-down approach to power. "The question is: 'what intensity does this wave have?'" Fischer said. The decisions bring to an end the authority's investigation against Google, which has accepted to hold talks with news agencies and other publishers to pay for the use of their news. Other European countries, especially Portugal, are also seeing an increase, due two new Omicron subvariants BA. It will not be easy.4 and BA. “But a lot of tickets didn’t get to the turnstiles.

5, which, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, are likely to become dominant in the region. "I told the president that it was out of the question to enter into a coalition deal, that would be a betrayal of our voters," Christian Jacob, leader of the conservative Les Republicains, said after meeting Macron, whom he had earlier described as"arrogant. The variants do not appear to carry a higher risk of severe disease than other forms of Omicron but as they are somewhat more infectious than the latter, it could lead to an increase in hospitalisations and deaths, the ECDC said. There is traditionally a two-week delay between cases and hospitalisation trends and then a similar delay regarding COVID-deaths. The conservatives' economic platform is largely compatible with Macron's, including his plans to raise the retirement age by three years to 65. New infections have been steadily rising since the end of May in France, with the seven-day moving average of daily new cases almost tripling between the May 27 figure of 17,705 and yesterday's 50,402. That total is nonetheless still seven times lower than the 366,179 record reached at the start of the year. Even so, Jacob said his party would be"responsible," seemingly opening the door to potentially messy bill-by-bill negotiations. Keller said other factors caused the problems at the Stade de France, in mayhem that saw the French police use tear gas at close range, even against children.

The number of people hospitalised for the disease fell to a six-month low of 13,876 on Saturday but it has increased by 458 over the last three days, at 14,334, an almost three-week high. France's Covid death toll rose by 56 over 24 hours yesterday, to reach 149,162. "Wasting our time" Jean-Luc Melenchon, a hard-left veteran who united the left in an alliance that won the second-biggest number of MPs, told reporters that Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne had to go. — Reuters Advertisement .
