To remember this Wednesday

to wear the mask again in stations and trains

, even if it is not compulsory.

“We are completely in line with a strong recommendation, both for our staff and for travelers, to wear the mask”

, he declared on France Inter.

The operator of long-distance coach connections FlixBus also announced on Wednesday

“encouraging its passengers to put the mask back on board its buses and at the station”.

Mauritius has lifted most of the health restrictions

that still prevailed to counter the Covid-19 pandemic, in particular allowing the reopening of bars and nightclubs and the abolition of the wearing of compulsory masks in public in order to relaunch its tourist activity.

A committee of American experts spoke out on Tuesday in favor of a vaccine recall specifically targeting Omicron

, auguring a need for annual injections against Covid, like the flu.

The scientists, invited by the American drug agency, the FDA, approved the measure by 19 votes to 2 after a day spent reviewing the available data, including projections for future waves and preliminary results provided by vaccine manufacturers.

An FDA scientist summed up the complexity of the situation: anticipating the evolution of a virus that has often defied predictions and mutated even faster than the flu.
