Although protests against COVID “health passports” for access to certain services gather more than 200,000 people, the vast majority seem to approve of such restrictions.
According to Le Figaro, this is evidenced by the results of a poll by Elabe “L’Opinion en direct” commissioned by BFMTV.
64% of respondents allowed the requirement of “health passports” for access to restaurants and bars, which is 10% more than in the previous similar survey. 72% approve of such restrictions for access to cultural institutions and 77% for long-distance public transport.
65% consider the passport requirement acceptable for access to hospitals.
Support for the “health passport” prevails among those aged over 65 years — their positive answers range from 80 to 90%. At the same time, in the group under 34, positive answers range from 42% to 53%.
54% said they did not support the weekly demonstrations against the “health passport” demand. In the previous survey, 49% did.
Thirty-four percent expressed support or sympathy for the protests, while 11% were undecided.
To recall, for more than a month, mass protests are held every Saturday in France against the demand for a “health passport,” which confirms vaccination, a recent negative test, or a previous illness, in order to access a number of services. Actions across the country attract more than 200,000 people.
