Macron and Castex divided on tightening restrictions

A defense council is to be held at the Elysee Palace on Wednesday, but within the government, no consensus on the measures to be adopted. The debate between the pro and the anti-containment is even intensifying.

Two very different lines coexist within the executive. First, that defended by Prime Minister Jean Castex and by Minister of Health Olivier Véran. For them the situation is no longer tenable. “We play with fire … The French will never forgive us if we see a doctor on television who explains sorting out the patients to be treated, worries an adviser to Europe 1. Another concludes:” We no longer understand the strategy of not reconfiguring “.

Macron counts on the acceleration of vaccination

On the other side, the line of Emmanuel Macron, that of the status quo. The head of state wants to do everything to avoid reconfining the country. A relative of the president explains that this week will be the confirmation that the strategy of not giving in is the right one, and even that we are certainly crossing the peak of the 3rd wave.
