In France, the number of covid infections has reached six figures. Health officials reported 104,611 instances in the preceding 24 hours on Saturday, the third day in a row that the numbers have reached new highs.

The newest data came ahead of a video-conference meeting Monday with President Emmanuel Macron and key members of his government to propose new Covid safety measures.

Officials are concerned about the impact of the Omicron variant’s rapid spread.

Adults should get a booster shot three months after their initial vaccine, according to the health authority.

The government is now aiming to make the health pass granted to those who have been vaccinated only valid if they accept the booster shot.

The pass is essential for foreign travel as well as entry to cafes, restaurants, and public spaces.

Some areas have already put in place their own security measures.

For example, officials in Savoie restored the mandatory wearing of masks not just in indoor public venues but also outdoors at the end of last month, a step that was recently taken in neighbouring Italy.

The most recent results reflect a huge increase since the beginning of the month: on December 4, the numbers surpassed 50,000 for the first time, before continuously rising.

The coronavirus has claimed the lives of 122,546 people in France thus far. 76.5 percent of the population has been fully immunised so far.
