Thousands protest new health measures in Paris

Thousands of people gathered in Paris on Saturday to protest new measures the government has introduced to avoid the further spread of COVID-19.

The current rules demand persons going to museums, theaters, cinemas, festivals, concerts, and amusement parks must have a health pass that shows they have either been vaccinated against coronavirus or tested negative for the disease. Starting from next week, the order will also include restaurants, bars, shopping centers, and traveling by airplanes or long-distance trains.

Earlier this month, President Emmanuel Macron stated the new measures must be imposed to curb the spread of the Delta variant of the virus.
