While Covid-19 contaminations have been on the rise for several weeks in France, the new President of the National Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, has ruled out any reinstatement of the health pass in the coming days.
“This is not what is provided for in the text of the law which will be submitted to parliament this week”, she declared on France 3, referring to the bill against the epidemic which will be presented on July 11 next.

This text aims to fight the epidemic while the state of health emergency will end on July 31.
In particular, it should allow the maintenance of the “tracing” of Covid cases and contact cases but will therefore not impose a return to the health pass, abandoned on March 14.
On June 27, the mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, had sparked controversy by claiming during a metropolitan council to have "information according to which the vaccine pass could be reactivated from next August 1", forcing the government to deny .
Contaminations are on the rise again at the start of summer in France and the pressure on hospitals is starting to be felt.
16,107 new admissions of patients with Covid were recorded on Saturday at the hospital, 11% more than the previous week.

Faced with this epidemic resumption, the brand new President of the National Assembly also ruled out an obligation to wear a mask for deputies.
“As of today, there is no question of it.
Now, depending on the evolution of the epidemic, we will have to see what to do,” she said.
