Critics have accused the administration of President Emmanuel Macron of turning France into a “health dictatorship,” and last weekend tens of thousands of French protested against the measures in rallies around the country.But French officials are unapologetic. “We’re in the fourth wave,” Prime Minister Jean Castex said during an appearance yesterday on France’s TF1 news network. He warned of harsher measures “if the situation were to explode” and urged people to get vaccinated to avoid a new round of lockdowns.

Castex said that 96% of the 18,000 people in France who tested positive for Covid-19 over the previous 24 hours were unvaccinated.After dropping throughout the spring, France’s daily infections are spiking again. “We have an increase in the spread of the virus of around 150% in the last week. We've never seen that," French Health Minister Olivier Véran told parliament yesterday.

Roughly 46% of the French population is fully vaccinated, which is on par with the United States. There is also a similar level of Covid-19 spread in the U.S. and France; both are currently reporting an average of about 14 new daily cases per 100,000 people.

If they don't offer free antigen testing outside tourist attractions or public places, France (and Italy and the likes) will give up 31%-42% of potential European tourists that are non-vaccinated and will choose to go elsewhere. Good, this will enable tourism to start again, without the fear of spreading the virus further.
