Faced with the rise of the fifth wave of the coronavirus and the concern over the Omicron variant, the government has decided to put in place new health restrictions in order to "save Christmas". The nightclubs were therefore ordered to close for a month from Friday. But this is not the only sector in difficulty: events and caterers are also hit hard.

Faced with the rise of the fifth wave of Covid-19, with 12,096 hospitalized patients including 2,191 in critical care, the government has decided to put in place new "vigilance measures".

No drastic measures have been announced, except for the closure of nightclubs.

But beyond this decision, many sectors are hit by the increased caution of customers.

Despite the end of "whatever the cost", now place for "whatever happens", in the words of Bruno Le Maire on Sunday on Europe 1. With regard to businesses, aid will now be highly targeted.

After the announcement of the closure of nightclubs for a month, their representatives will be received by the Minister in charge of Small and Medium Enterprises, Alain Griset, on Tuesday.

But the government does not stop there.

The latter also wants to help the event sector and as well as caterers, hit hard by cascading cancellations.


For 10 days already, contacts have multiplied in Bercy.

The government indeed needed to update its figures and take stock of everyone's situation.

It now remains to decide the type of aid released, and above all on the basis of what criteria: can 2019 still serve as a reference?

This is one of the open questions.

But if the goal is to tailor-made, the hope remains that the third dose of vaccine will quickly return to a more normal situation.
