Veran on COVID: France to 'turn the page' by year end

France might get to "turn the page" on the COVID-19 pandemic by November or December, French Health Minister Olivier Veran (pictured right) asserted on Wednesday.

In an interview with La Chaine Info (LCI), Veran attributed the optimism regarding the pandemic outcome to the number of vaccinated people in the country but warned that the forecasts only stand in the case no new coronavirus variants emerge.

Earlier today, a set of less strict COVID-19 containment measures took effect in France, in line with the country's roadmap to lifting lockdowns.
