In the face of the outbreak of the epidemic, many European countries are taking new measures.
France: Mask in schools
It has been mandatory to wear the mask again in elementary schools across France since Monday. The whole of France is now in turmoil.
This generalization about wearing a mask implies a step backwards. In September, the government announced that it would end the use of masks in primary schools in areas less affected by the epidemic.
Netherlands: Return to partial jail
The Dutch Prime Minister announced the reintroduction of partial regulation, with a series of health restrictions affecting the catering sector in particular.
These measures will come into effect from Saturday evening and will last for at least three weeks. Essential stores such as bars, restaurants and supermarkets will close at 8pm and non-essential stores at 6pm.
Citizens are not allowed to stay in their homes with more than four people and are called by phone.
Public demonstrations will be suppressed and football matches will be held behind closed doors. However, schools are open and people are allowed to go out of the house.
Germany: Great revenue for teleworking
Germany is preparing for a massive return to teleworking. With 289 cases per 100,000 people, the infection rate reached a new record in the most populous country in Europe on Sunday.
Austrian President Alexander Schalenberg announced on Monday that the lock-in would come into effect for those who have not been vaccinated or have recently been infected with the Covit-19 disease, setting a record for the first time in the EU.
The persons concerned have no right to leave their home except for shopping, sports or medical care. This measure is applicable from the age of 12 and unannounced tests will be carried out.
65% of the population has a complete immunization schedule, which is lower than the European average of 67%.
Health passes in Norway
Norway will reintroduce restrictions nationally in view of the resumption of the epidemic, especially by authorizing municipalities to use the health pass.
The Scandinavian nation, which lifted all restrictions by the end of September, will offer a third dose of the vaccine for more than 18 years.
Israel vaccines 5-11 year olds
After the United States, Israel on Sunday gave the green light to vaccinate children 5 to 11 years old with Pfizer / Bioentech doses in hopes of preventing the Govt-19 epidemic.
