In France, the number of covid infections has surpassed six figures. Health officials confirmed 104,611 infections in the past 24 hours on Saturday, the third day in a row that the numbers have hit record highs.

The fresh data was obtained ahead of a video-conference meeting Monday with President Emmanuel Macron and key members of his government to offer alternative Covid safety precautions.

Adults should just get a booster shot three months after their first vaccine, according to the health authority.

The government is now attempting to make the health pass supplied for those that have been vaccinated only valid if they take the booster shot.

The pass is mandatory for foreign travel as well as entry to cafes, restaurants, and public spaces.

Some regions have already put in place their own security precautions.

For example, officials in Savoie reinstated the mandated wearing of masks not just in enclosed public venues but also outdoor at the end of last month, a step that was recently adopted in neighboring Italy.

The most recent results indicate a massive spike since the start of the month on December 4, the numbers topped 50,000 for the first time, before constantly increasing.

The coronavirus has resulted in the deaths of 122,546 people in France thus far. 76.5 percent of the total population has been adequately vaccinated so far.
