(Fighting New Coronary Pneumonia) Experts from France to strengthen immigration control on Turkey and other seven countries call for avoiding the fourth wave of epidemic

  China News Agency, Paris, May 7th (Reporter Li Yang) On the 7th local time, French officials strengthened entry controls on seven countries including Turkey to curb the spread of the new crown virus.

Experts from the French Scientific Committee in response to the epidemic called for averting the fourth wave of the epidemic, and the people should continue to be vigilant.

  According to official news from France on the 7th, France has strengthened entry controls on seven countries including Turkey, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar; these seven countries have been included in the list of countries that have strengthened entry controls. Travelers from the country are required to be quarantined for 10 days after they arrive in France.

The immigration control measures for these seven countries will come into effect on the 8th.

  In the list of countries that have been included in France to strengthen entry control, in addition to the above seven foreign countries, there are also countries such as India, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and South Africa.

According to the current immigration control regulations, people entering France from these countries must provide virus test results within 36 hours, and must also prove that they have a place to be quarantined after entering France.

  Experts from the French Scientific Committee to respond to the epidemic issued a report on the 7th, calling for the prevention of the fourth wave of epidemics. The public must continue to be vigilant. The government must continue to implement the phased "unblocking" process in a "prudent and controlled manner."

  Experts believe that the resumption of economic and social activities is necessary and has important social and economic significance, but "unblocking" still needs to be closely linked to changes in epidemic data.

If the incidence of the new crown in France can be stabilized at a level of less than 100 infected persons per 100,000 inhabitants, the management of the epidemic will become "much easier", but the current epidemic is still unstable.

Experts warn that “unblocking” too quickly may lead to a fourth wave of epidemics this summer.

  On the 7th, the number of single-day COVID-19 vaccination in France once again exceeded 600,000 doses, reaching 617,822 doses, setting a new record for single-day vaccination.

The French Ministry of Health stated that 17.49 million people have received at least one dose of the new crown vaccine.

The number of people who received two doses of vaccination was 7.64 million.

  According to official French epidemic data, there were 19,124 newly confirmed cases in a single day in France on the 7th, with a total of 5,747,214 confirmed cases.

The cumulative number of deaths in France is now 106,101, with 251 new deaths.

There are 26,331 hospitalized patients with the new crown in France, and 5,106 critically ill patients.
