After a sluggish start, France’s vaccination rollout has hit full speed and is reaching new highs. So, how does it compare to Monaco?
Around 1.47 million people in the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur (PACA) region have now been vaccinated against Covid, according to the latest figures. With a population of 5,088,998, that equates to around 29% of the population.
On a national level, a new record was reached last weekend with more than 450,000 vaccinations administered in just two days.
Currently, more than a third of adults in France have received at least one dose of the vaccine. As of 12th May, 18.15 million people have received at one injection, equivalent to 34.5% of the population, and 7.9 million have been administered two injections, or 15.2% of the population.
As of 6th May in Monaco, 13,934 people had received their first vaccination, equivalent to 36.33% of the population. Of those, 86.14% have also received their second shot.
Masks will no longer be mandatory in Monaco from Saturday, with the exception of a few tourist hotspots like Casino Square.
Masks are no longer mandatory outdoors in France from Thursday, while the curfew will be dropped completely come this Sunday.
As the UNAIDS International Goodwill Ambassador, Princess Stephanie has addressed a high-level meeting titled ‘Ending inequalities and taking action to end AIDS by 2030’.
More than a dozen Covid cases recorded last week in Monaco have been linked to the same origin, prompting a warning for residents not to let their guards down.
