France’s Health Ministry will later announce a record more than 350,000 new covid infections in a 24-hour period on Tuesday, Health Minister Olivier Véran told lawmakers.

The previous record of 332,252 new cases daily was set on January 5, and since then France has seen two more days of more than 300,000 new cases in 24 hours as the highly contagious Omicron has become the dominant variant. The seven-day moving average of new cases rose to nearly 270,000 on Monday.

“Another 350,000 new infections will be reported tonight, even slightly more than that. We have never seen such numbers before since the start of the health crisis.” They will see he told the senators.

In mid-January, the French government hopes to introduce a vaccination pass that will make vaccination mandatory for anyone who wants to go to restaurants or attend indoor events.

Until now, proof of vaccination or a recent negative test was sufficient.
