Of all the announcements made by Olivier Véran, Thursday, November 25, to deal with the new epidemic wave of Covid-19, one seems to be particularly reactive on social networks.

Several Internet users have indeed not failed to ironize on the reduction in the validity period of PCR tests, which goes from seventy-two hours, currently, to twenty-four hours, as of Monday.

A reform which requires unvaccinated people to be "tested every day and at [their] expense" if they wish to be able to use the health pass, as the Minister of Health underlined.

Ah so the 24-hour validity period for PCR tests starts at the time of the sample, which means that when you receive the result it will no longer be valid 😂.

At this level of mouthfulness, it is better to laugh about it and mobilize against this senseless policy!

“Ah, so the twenty-four hour validity period for PCR tests starts at the time of the sample, which means that when you receive the result it will no longer be valid.

At this level of mouthfulness, it is better to laugh about it and mobilize against this senseless policy!

“, Was particularly offended Joffrey Bollée, a close friend of Floriant Philippot and member of the Patriots.

Is right ?

FAKE OFF

The government has, on its website, updated the health provisions that came into force on Monday.

Thus, it is specified that "since November 29, 2021, only PCR and antigen tests dating from less than 24 hours will be constitutive evidence of the" sanitary pass "".

Without specifying from what moment this period runs: the withdrawal or the notification of the result?

, the entourage of the Prime Minister specifies that, to act as a health pass, a negative test must date from less than twenty-four hours "from the sample". A provision which explicitly aims to encourage unvaccinated people to be bitten, as Olivier Véran clarified during his press conference on Thursday. "It is essential to be vaccinated when it is not yet done", encouraged the Minister of Health.

The reduction of the delay effectively complicates the lives of unvaccinated people who wish to use the health pass.

On its site, the Ministry of Health indicates, however, that, according to its data from October 2021, "the result [of a PCR test] is delivered in less than twenty-four hours in 99% of cases".

With regard to antigenic tests, the results are generally known after a few minutes, although their reliability is less.
