France warns .. a “sudden” development of the fifth pandemic wave

French government spokesman Gabriel Attal warned, on Sunday, that the current development of the fifth pandemic wave in the country is “surprising”, noting that “there are elements that can worry us and elements that can make us confident.”

“This fifth wave started suddenly,” Atal told several media outlets, according to AFP.

Boost Potion

He also added, “We see a significant increase in the rate of infections, but we also know that in France we have wide vaccination coverage, and we are somewhat ahead of giving the booster dose compared to our neighbours.” He recalled that France issued the health certificate in July, while “most of the surrounding countries issued it later.”


He also insisted that the government bears, with the decision to issue the health certificate, “the option of holding the unvaccinated people responsible instead of holding it to the unvaccinated.”

Injuries doubled in a week

It is noteworthy that the number of injuries doubled within a week, as 17,153 injuries were recorded on Saturday, while 9,458 were recorded a week ago.

The main challenge remains to determine whether the increase in the number of injuries will put pressure on hospitals. However, the authorities are linking the decrease in pressure on hospitals to the increase in vaccination rates against AIDS COVID-19 Which contributes very effectively to the reduction of severe forms of the disease and less effective against infections with the mutant delta.



In addition, about 75% of the French population received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. The number of people infected with Covid-19 in hospitals reached 7,974 on Saturday, including 1,333 patients in intensive care, compared to 6,500 people (including a thousand in intensive care) a month ago.

France has suggested that those over 65 years of age and at risk of developing severe forms of the disease receive a third dose of the vaccine against the virus.COVID-19The latter will become available to people between the ages of 50 and 64 as of December 1.
