The rapporteur for the text, Jean-Pierre Pont, also a member of the majority and a doctor by profession, has for his part been unfavorable to proportional gauges. “The more you increase the possibility for people to move, the more the virus will circulate. (…) If we go from 5,000 to 20,000 people, you quadruple the movement of people. As we have an extremely contagious virus, you will quadruple the risk of contagion “, he justified himself, affirming in passing that the Minister of Health Olivier Véran shared his point of view.
The bill on the transformation of the health pass into a vaccination pass must be adopted by January 15. In the meantime, the reception gauges in absolute value remain in force in stadiums and other sports arenas.
