Some Countries Reinstate COVID-19 Restrictions As Others Roll Back
COVID-19 cases are on the rise in many parts of the globe, prompting the return of restrictions in many countries. That’s sparking unrest.
Protesters took to the streets in France, Italy and Australia over the weekend.
In France, demonstrators fought back against rules that will make vaccine passports mandatory to enter many public places.
Tourists even have to show proof of vaccination or take an onsite test to visit the Eiffel tower.
In Australia, police clashed with protesters furious about new lockdowns.
In England, people took to the streets and bars not to protest, but to celebrate the removal of all coronavirus restrictions.
Cases there are on the rise but deaths have remained low, with the government attributing that to a strong vaccine rollout.
