French President Emmanuel Macron has planned to convene his Health Defense Council on Monday to develop new measures to ensure the security of the country. Full vaccinations, with boosters, will likely soon be required to enter all bars, restaurants and cultural venues, Bloomberg reported.

France, with a population of 65 million, is close to the 67 million inhabitants of the United Kingdom. Spain, with a population of 47 million, recorded a record 50,000 cases earlier in the week, and Italy (60 million) recorded nearly 45,000 cases on Thursday. Several other European countries are overwhelmed by the surge in cases and institute new restrictions.

Florida hit a new all-time high of 32,850 COVID cases reported on Saturday, according to the Miami Herald. The previous record had been reported the day before.

“Omicron is worth 10 [times] more potent at causing re-infection than previous variants – protection against a previous infection is not as good as protection against triple vaccination, Dr. Aileen Marty, infectious disease expert at Florida International University, told the Herald .

So far, hospitalizations and deaths from the growing number of cases have been much lower than from the delta variant. But scientists warn that it is still too early to know what the final impact could be.
