It seems that everything is changing for the better. Emmanuel Macron the French President, clarified that France is making plans to finally start lifting restrictions on non-E.U. tourists, within the next few weeks.
Emmanuel Macron revealed that ministers are closing the technical discussions on how to begin easing restrictions in the best way possible. With administrators working to come up with a system that would enable vaccinated French, European and also American citizens to travel freely this summer.
Macron added that France shall progressively lift the restrictions by May. Officials in France are working firmly to suggest a very solid solution. Especially for U.S. citizens who are vaccinated now.
So, the government of France is presently making a testing and vaccine certificate to help ease the travel problems caused by COVID-19 between European nations. France will rely upon some variation of a so-called “vaccine passport” to resume foreign travel.
Of course, the idea is to lift the restrictions for those American citizens who have been inoculated or have a PCR test being negative. Therefore, by keeping an eye on the virus not only it would be controlled but also, allows France to progressively move the restrictions.
Right now, however, France is struggling with another wave of COVID-19 infection and in the middle of its third national lockdown since the pandemic began.
An epidemic within an epidemic is what Macron called France’s new situation. In which, the latest surge in the spread of new COVID-19 variants is are even more transmissible than the virus’ previous strains and that is hard enough.
This most recent surge in France is also powered by the country’s holdup in getting its residents vaccinated, but Macron said that Europe’s vaccine production has speeded up and inoculation efforts have gained momentum so that the nation should now be on track.
