Follow the day’s events live:

8h30. Concordant agenda. It is today that comes into force, in Washington (United States), the vaccination obligation to access theaters, restaurants, and indoor bars.

8:20 a.m. What would he have said of the Covid? Faced with all these non-imaginary patients, how many “Doctor in spite of himself”? He made fun of the precious, the bourgeois, the scholars who know little, the vain, the talkative… What would Molière, born 400 years ago, have said about Covid?

8:10 a.m. How many protesters, that’s the question. This is the challenge, for the executive, of the day, while the vaccination pass is about to come into force: what will be the participation of the demonstrations today? In the wake of Emmanuel Macron’s remarks to the readers of our newspaper, saying he was determined to “piss off” the unvaccinated, 105,200 demonstrators had been counted throughout France, four times more than the 25,500 people identified during the previous mobilization. , December 18.

8 hours. Americans invited to wear more masks. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised its advice for Americans on wearing masks on Friday. They recommend “wearing the most protective mask possible, well fitted” and “systematically”. Like France, the United States is facing a strong resurgence of the epidemic due to Omicron.

7:50 a.m. Demonstrations again today. In total, 85,000 to 120,000 people are expected throughout France, including 9,000 to 14,000 in Paris, according to police sources. Several processions are organized in the capital and the largest should be that of the movement Les Patriotes, by Florian Philippot, which will start from the Trocadero. Other parades will take place at the initiative of the Yellow Vests.

7:40 a.m. The vaccination pass again adopted in the National Assembly. Unsurprisingly, MPs passed the controversial bill transforming the health pass into a vaccine pass at second reading, after another night of debate. Started at 3 p.m. Friday, the second reading of the text ended at 4 a.m. with an adoption by 185 votes for, 69 against and 8 abstentions, in an electric atmosphere. The text must again be examined during the day in the Senate.

7:30 a.m. The Djoko soap opera continues. The world No. 1 in tennis Novak Djokovic, not vaccinated, was sent back to administrative detention this morning, the day after the second cancellation of his visa by the Australian government. Rafael Nadal lashed out: “The Australian Open is way more important than any player,” the Spaniard said, saying he “disagrees with a lot of things he’s done these last two weeks”.

7:20 a.m. How many reminders? 31.12 million people have received a reminder against Covid since the start of the vaccine campaign. Yesterday, 606,491 booster doses were delivered to vaccination centres, doctors’ surgeries and pharmacies, while 49,684 first injections were carried out.

7:10 a.m. Sanitary pass disabled. About 560,000 people are likely to lose their health pass during the day because they have not made their reminder. Unless they have recently been infected, which prolongs their pass.
