However, there are different voices that aren’t keen on taking either tests or vaccines in the due course of time.

A new proposed bill however is ready to take on such people. The newly introduced bill is soon to be presented in Parliament. This gives the French government the necessity of a legal framework to deal with the pandemic and future health crisis.

The cabinet of Prime Minister Jean Castex has backed the proposed bill. The bill says, that “preventative treatment, including the administration of a vaccine” is essential for access to Public transport.

Previously President Emanuel Macron said in November that the Coronavirus vaccine will not be mandatory.

However, the opposition parties have sparked outrage against the language used in the bill. The opposition RN party said that this is a totalitarian approach.

Marine Le Pen, a leader of the Party said as per AFP,

“in a backhanded way, this bill does not aim to make vaccinations mandatory, but will prevent anybody who doesn’t comply from having a social life,” reported Newsweek.

There have been different terms used for the bill. It has been called the ‘attack on public freedoms’ and ‘vaccine blackmail’.

However, the government refused to take it as excessive power rather than put it as a measure for a health state.

France is planning to start vaccination for the most vulnerable people as soon as next Sunday.
