The French government on Tuesday defended its decision to impose Covid tests for unvaccinated people who want to eat in restaurants or take long-distance trips, as the country looks to avoid a surge in more contagious Delta cases.“There isn’t any vaccine obligation, this is maximum inducement,” government spokesman Gabriel Attal said then. headtopics.com
