10.58 am: Maintaining the health pass “for now”

Professor Alain Fischer, “mister vaccine” of the government, considered that it was “reasonable” to maintain the barrier gestures and the use of the health pass “for the moment”: “We are still above the rate of incidence that prevailed before the fourth wave. It will in any case have to be gradually alleviated ” he said in an interview with Ouest France.

He notably recalled the “particularly difficult situation in Guyana”, for example, “where the incidence rate is ten times higher than that of the metropolis”.

10:22 a.m .: A particularly dreaded bronchiolitis rebound

“The bronchiolitis epidemic could be of great magnitude” notably warned in its last opinion the Scientific Council. Last winter, confinements and anti-Covid barrier gestures also blocked other viruses, including RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), responsible for bronchiolitis. The children were less infected than usual, and therefore have less immunity.

The French Scientific Council thus notes a “significant acquired collective immunity deficit for children born after March 2020”.

8:26 am: Fiji Islands unveil conditions for reopening to tourists

We told you on Saturday, the Fiji Islands will ease the restrictions put in place to fight Covid-19 and announce their reopening to international travelers, thanks to the progress of the vaccination campaign.

Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama said details of the easing of restrictions would be unveiled this Sunday afternoon, now that 80% of the adult population has received both doses of the vaccine. Tourism represents 40% of the archipelago’s economy.

The essentials this Sunday morning

– The anti-health pass mobilization at the lowest … in France: only 45,300 people marched on Saturday against the health pass in France.

– In Italy, on the other hand, clashes broke out during demonstrations against the local health pass in Rome. In Switzerland, in Geneva, a demonstration was held against health restrictions.

– France recorded only 17 new deaths in hospital in 24 hours on Saturday, for 6,700 people hospitalized, including 1,127 in intensive care. A better result every day for two months, but an improvement that is slowing down.

– As winter approaches, the Institut Pasteur has also expressed its “cautious optimism” about the evolution of the pandemic in our country.

– As such, Professor Alain Fischer considered that it was “reasonable” to maintain the barrier gestures and the use of the health pass “for the moment”.

– In Russia, the days go by and look the same: the country has a series of daily records of deaths from Covid-19, with another 968 deaths this Saturday, against the backdrop of a strong epidemic wave due to the delta variant, and a population too little vaccinated.

– Worldwide, more than 4.8 million people have already died from Covid-19 – at least: the WHO estimates that the real toll is 2 to 3 times higher. At the same time, nearly one in two humans has already received at least one dose of the vaccine.

7:13 am: In Russia, new daily death record

Russia on Saturday recorded a new record of 968 daily deaths. The epidemic wave has been carried by the delta variant since the summer against the backdrop of a very laborious vaccination campaign.

In recent days, the country has already broken its daily death record several times. The government count officially reaches 215,453 dead, making Russia the most bereaved country in Europe. But the real toll is much heavier.

The Rosstat statistics institute, which has a broader definition of deaths due to Covid-19, reported more than 400,000 deaths at the end of August on Friday.

6:56 am: Demonstrations in Europe against health measures

“No to the pass, no to blackmail, yes to common sense”: Several thousand people demonstrated on Saturday afternoon in the streets of Geneva in Switzerland to oppose restrictions linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, denouncing a ” health dictatorship “.

In Rome, they were also several thousand marching to protest against the obligation from October 15 of the health pass in all workplaces. “We were both suspended two months ago,” said Cosimo and Morena, in their forties, both nurses, ensuring that they were exempted from the compulsory vaccination by their doctor.

6:46 am: The slow improvement continues

The health situation continues to improve in France, despite a slowdown. This Saturday, barely more than 1,100 patients were in intensive care or critical care, for 6,700 people hospitalized in total for a Covid-19.

The number of new cases, on the other hand, started to increase slightly, with 4,734 contaminations in 24 hours.

Several scientists warn against too much relaxation as winter approaches, despite high vaccination.

Indeed, several hundred thousand people over the age of 80 are still unvaccinated in France – a record in Western Europe.

6:45 am: Less than 50,000 people against the health pass

For the 13th consecutive Saturday, opponents of the health pass have again demonstrated across France. They were 45,300, including 5,300 in Paris, according to the Ministry of the Interior.

Beauvau had identified 47,935 demonstrators on October 2. In the capital, this October 9, only 5,300 people beat the pavement, as many as last Saturday, separated into two processions.
