Emmanuel Macron gave a rare interview to the American channel CBS Sunday, April 18, 2021. The Head of State was filmed for half an hour in the show Face The Nation. The French President obviously addressed the issue of the Covid, which has claimed 100,000 lives in France. He let it be known that travel restrictions will be “gradually“raised in early May and that vaccinated US citizens can hope to travel to France soon. “We will gradually lift the restrictions at the beginning of May, which means that we will organize ourselves in the summer with our professionals in France for French European citizens, but also for vaccinated American citizens, with a health passport”, he confided. He then went on to say: “We are working on a European certificate to facilitate travel after these restrictions between different European countries with screening and vaccination. And the idea is indeed to offer this to the American citizen when he has decided to be vaccinated or with a negative PCR test “.
“He managed to cram a mytho”
Speaking of vaccination, Emmanuel Macron bragged about the progress of operations in France, after criticism of the government about the slowness of vaccinations compared to other countries, including Israel, hailed for its vaccination strategy. “We are definitely catching up and we will be able to achieve our goals with what we currently have”, he assured by affirming in addition that “more than 12 million people” have been vaccinated. “Between two ads he managed to squeeze in a mytho”, denounces Yann Barthès on the set of Daily Monday, April 19, 2021. And for good reason, this figure would not be entirely accurate. “Not 12 million. 4.5 million French people have had only the two doses necessary to be qualified as vaccinated”. In fact, the figure of 12 million corresponds to the number of people vaccinated for the first time, ie those who have received only one dose. A precision considered necessary to bring to the televiewers.
