France Reveals Record Low Number Of COVID-19 Vaccine Supporters
A survey conducted by the French polling company Ipsos in cooperation with the World Economic Forum and published on Tuesday, 29 December, revealed that only four out of ten people in France are ready to be vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Le Figaro journalists specify that France is the « world champion » in the number of opponents of vaccination against coronavirus, which make up about 60% of the total population.
The number is higher than that in Russia or South Africa. At the same time back in October, 54% of the French were in favor of vaccination.
On 29 December the French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, announced the involvement of more than 100 000 gendarmes and police officers in an « anti-coronavirus » quarantine on New Year’s Eve.
