The governments of France, Britain and Germany have reported that they will lift restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic. These measures were taken despite the fact that the number of infections did not decrease in any of the three countries.

French residents will no longer be required to wear a chinstrap at work or present a health passport in restaurants from this Monday, following the end of most restrictions due to the coronavirus, in a context of caution due to the resurgence of infections.

“From today, you are no longer required to wear a mask or show your card. We have all been waiting for you! Health Minister Olivier Vran tweeted, calling for surveillance of vulnerable people.

The use of the chinstrap is maintained only on public transport and in health centres. In the latter case, a health passport must also be presented.

“I’m glad we can finally take off the masks, even though we haven’t respected the rules in the office since vaccination,” explains Nathan Lefeuvre, 24.

One month before the presidential election, the Government in early March announced the end of these measures due to the improving health situation. However, in recent days, the number of coronavirus infections has increased.

Germany faces the last week of restrictions due to the pandemic with doubt given the record number of infections, while the Government maintains its goal of implementing a mandatory vaccine.

From March 20, almost all limitations in daily life will disappear for most residents, although it is hoped that measures such as mandatory wearing of masks in hospitals, nursing homes and means of transportation will be maintained.

Additional restrictions will also be considered in areas where local outbreaks are registered, including masks, social distancing and basic hygiene standards, testing and certification of vaccination status.
