France is getting closer to its 20 million target in the Covid vaccination campaign – fr


PARIS: France was on track to meet its target on Saturday of 20 million initial doses of coronavirus vaccines, before the much-awaited reopening of restaurant terraces on Wednesday as the government begins to lift a national lockdown.
Authorities have also reported further declines in the number of patients requiring intensive care in hospitals.
“Still nearly 600,000 vaccinations today,” the Minister of Health Olivier Veran tweeted on Friday evening. “Tomorrow, 20 million French people will have had at least one dose”, which would represent nearly 30% of the population.
The government aims to inject 30 million initial doses by June 15, when President Emmanuel Macron said all adults will be able to sign up for a vaccine currently reserved for priority groups and adults over 50. years.
On Friday, the number of people in intensive care was 4,352, down 90 from the previous day and well below the peak of 6,001 during the “third wave” of infections that hit France from March. .
On Wednesday, museums, theaters, cinemas and concert halls will reopen with limited capacity after six weeks of closure to end the pandemic, and the national curfew will be pushed back to 9:00 p.m. (7:00 p.m. GMT) from 7:00 p.m.
Non-essential stores will also reopen, and outdoor seating in cafes and restaurants will be allowed for the first time since October 30.
Cafes and restaurants will be able to serve customers indoors on June 9, and the curfew will be fully lifted on June 30 if infection rates continue to decline.
