The Facts

On Wednesday, French President Emmanuel Macron promised to make life difficult for the unvaccinated, adding that he wanted to “bug them” (Translated).

Up until now, the French government has required citizens to carry a “health pass”, showing a new negative COVID-19 test or a vaccination certificate to access restaurants, trains, and other public spaces.

The French government now has moved to introduce legislation that would remove the option of showing a negative COVID-19 report, thus barring the unvaccinated from these public spaces.

Macron stated, “So we need to tell them – from Jan. 15, you will no longer be able to go to the restaurant. You will no longer be able to go for a coffee; you will no longer be able to go to the theatre. You will no longer be able to go to the cinema.” (Translated)

Prime Minister Jean Castex supported Macron’s remarks in front of the Senate, stating that the sentiment expressed was consistent with the government’s strategy to tackle the pandemic.
