Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Paris and other French cities on Saturday to protest proposed legislation that would expand the use of a pandemic health pass and require health workers to be vaccinated for Covid-19.

The pass, which attests that the bearer has either been vaccinated, tested negative for coronavirus within the last 48 hours or had and recovered from Covid-19 during the preceding six months, is currently obligatory for museums, cinemas and tourist sites.EFE
