Scandal: in France investigates ministers’ participation in clandestine quarantine parties

In France, the police will check the veracity of information about the participation of several French ministers in underground parties in restaurants in Paris, which should be closed because of the quarantine imposed due to the pandemic COVID-19.

This was announced by the head of the Ministry of Interior Gerald Darmanin on Twitter.

He made this decision on the basis of a revealing report from such an event filmed by the French TV channel M6.

“After the M6 report, I asked the prefect of the Paris police to check the veracity of the reported facts so that, if they are confirmed, to prosecute the organizers and participants of these secret dinners,” Darmanin wrote.

The earlier M6 TV channel reported that a restaurant in an expensive district of Paris organizes clandestine parties at which neither waiters nor customers wear masks and do not observe the social distance.

In confirmation of this, a video from a private party attended by dozens of unmasked people, which was filmed by a hidden camera, was published.

The TV channel contacted one of the organizers of the party, who said that he had attended dinners in restaurants with a number of members of the French government.

It should be noted that the organizers of such parties face up to one year in jail and a fine of 15 thousand euros.

Recall that bars, cafes, and restaurants in France actually do not work since late October because of the epidemic of coronavirus. And on March 31, President Emmanuel Macron announced the introduction of a curfew across the country from April 3 at 19:00.

We also reported that France has banned gatherings in groups of more than six people because of the continuing rise of the disease.

In Estonia, the number of people who want to be vaccinated against COVID-19 has increased dramatically

The willingness of Estonian residents to be vaccinated against COVID-19 has increased dramatically over the past few weeks.

This is reported by ERR.

According to a survey by Turu-uuringute AS, commissioned by the State Chancellery, as of the end of March, 75% of respondents were ready to be vaccinated against coronavirus. The respondents also include people who have already been given the vaccine.

This indicator has been steadily increasing since the beginning of January. Two weeks ago, 71% of respondents were ready to be vaccinated, a month ago — 69%.

This is due to an increase in the number of vaccinated people, a decrease in the number of skeptics, and those who have a negative attitude to vaccination against COVID-19.

At the beginning of January, 16% of respondents expressed the opinion that they most likely do not plan to be vaccinated. At the end of March, their number decreased to 10%.

15% of respondents were against vaccination in early January, and 12% in mid — and late March.

At the same time, the sense of danger due to the spread of the coronavirus, which has been growing steadily since the beginning of February and reached a record high two weeks ago, has begun to decline. According to the latest data, 69% of respondents consider the situation critical, while 81% thought so in mid-March.

Recall that the Estonian government recently continued the existing restrictions to combat the coronavirus epidemic until April 25.

Strict quarantine in Estonia was introduced on March 11. From this day on, all stores are closed, except for grocery stores, pharmacies, pet stores, gas stations, and others that sell basic necessities. Restaurants can only sell take-out or take-out meals.

Under threat of suspension: in Italy, all doctors were forced to be vaccinated against COVID-19

The Italian government has passed a decree forcing all medical workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

This is reported by Ctvnews.

In case of refusal, they face temporary suspension from work and refusal of cash payments.

“The purpose of the event is to maximize the protection of both medical personnel and those who are in an environment that may be more at risk of infection,” the report says.

At the same time, the government has established at the legislative level the provision that, if all the rules of vaccination are observed, doctors are not responsible for the occurrence of side effects.

It is also noted that in areas with high vaccination rates, the authorities may relax some quarantine restrictions.

Earlier, the WHO said that the pace of vaccination against COVID-19 on the European continent remains unacceptably slow.

We also wrote that in Sicily, local authorities falsified data on the dead from COVID-19 to avoid lockdown.

The French will be banned from drinking in public places

In the next few weeks, the French will be banned from drinking in public places due to the risk of the spread of the coronavirus. This was stated by the Prime Minister of the country, Jean Castex, reports by The Straits Times.

Presenting a plan for a new regime of self-isolation in the National Assembly of France, the prime minister condemned those who do not comply with epidemiological measures. He also stressed that the control over their compliance will be strengthened.

“If we are talking about festive gatherings and non-compliance with the curfew, or refusal to wear masks, we must prevent this. I have asked the Minister of the Interior to increase the number of police and gendarmes to monitor this, “ Castex said.

The Prime Minister recalled that it is forbidden for companies of more than six people to gather in public places. In addition, the authorities want to prohibit access to “a number of places favorable for mass gatherings.”

On March 31, French President Emmanuel Macron tightened restrictions due to the spread of the infection. The quarantine regime, which was in effect in 19 regions of France, will now be extended to all regions of the country. From next week, schools and kindergartens will be closed for three weeks, and the French will only be able to move no more than 10 kilometers from home. Travel between regions will be restricted.

Macron announced the extension of the quarantine to all regions of France

The quarantine regime currently in force in 19 regions of France will be extended from April 3 to all regions of the country due to the deterioration of the sanitary situation. This was announced on Wednesday by French President Emmanuel Macron in a televised address to the nation.

“The rules, which were previously introduced in 19 departments of the country, will be extended to the whole of France on Saturday evening,” he said.

According to Macron, they will be in effect within the next four weeks.

Macron said that the authorities will strengthen control and sanctions for violating the quarantine regime.
