French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced that the fifth wave of coronavirus has come to the country. According to him, the new Omicron strain is spreading as rapidly as lightning.
Kasteks noted that in early January, it is the Omicron strain that will be prevalent in France. To limit the spread of the virus, authorities have banned public events during the holiday season. The prime minister called on the French to get together in small companies.
“The fewer you are, the less the risk,” Kasteks said.
According to Al Jazeera, the French authorities urged the population to be vaccinated before the holidays, because the number of infected is growing rapidly.
