He blasted: "The failure of the vaccine supply is the best symptom of Brussels bureaucracy.
"With 27 states, we had to be more efficient in obtaining vaccines, said Macron. False!
"It's the other way around. Morocco or Serbia prove it to us."
Echoing his comments, MEP Dominique Bilde said: "After Brexit, the UK was supposed to become a third world country, collapse and never recover, but now they vaccinate 850,000 people in on day while France vaccinates 56,000."

How a popular movement could threaten Idriss Déby Itno's 30 years in power

Card image cap


Chadian President Idriss Déby Itno, who has ruled since 1990, is gearing up to take on his sixth mandate as head of state. Elections are scheduled for 11 April 2021. And the country’s 2018 constitution allows him to stay in office, if elected, until 2033.
Déby is an experienced military man who first joined the army in the 1970s during the former French colony’s civil war. He eventually became commander in chief of the armed forces under former president Hissène Habré who served from 1982 to 1990.
In that year, an insurrection led by Déby hounded President Habré out of office. Déby promised to establish a functioning multiparty democracy and to put an end to the previous regime’s lawlessness and violence. That promise was short lived. Déby’s ambitions quickly shifted to staying in power by any means and enriching his extended family.

Nearly a third of France's population on Saturday entered what Prime Minister Jean Castex billed as a "lockdown", the country's third since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, amid a sharp, variant-inflected spike in new infections. But confusion reigned over the weekend, even down to whether the term "lockdown" is appropriate for the limited measures imposed.

New York's financial district was in a sombre mood as fear of inflation followed by interest rate hikes took hold.
NEW YORK: Global stocks fell Friday as the US Federal Reserve's upbeat economic outlook was eclipsed by fears the recovery will fan inflation and push interest rates up sooner than expected.
Huge amounts of central bank and government stimulus have helped the global economy recover from last year's virus-driven collapse.
Major central banks are now grappling with a rapid rise in bond yields, triggered by fears that stimulus-fuelled inflation could herald rate hikes as economies reopen.

Despite the increased number of blood clots reported, the World Health Organisation has urged EU nations to continue to use the vaccine.
The WHO's European director, Hans Kluge, said: "As of now, we do not know whether some or all of the conditions have been caused by the vaccine or by other coincidental factors.
"At this point in time, however, the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine far outweigh its risks and its use should continue, to save lives."
Spain has also suspended the jab for at least two weeks, according to Spanish Health Minister Carolina Darias.

PARIS, March 20 (Reuters) - Nearly a third of French people entered a month-long lockdown on Saturday with many expressing fatigue and confusion over the latest set of restrictions aimed at containing the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus.
The government announced the new measures on Thursday after a jump in COVID-19 cases in Paris and parts of northern France.
The new restrictions are less severe than those in place during the lockdowns of spring and November 2020, raising concerns that they may not be effective.
“It’s exhausting, tiring, it’s long. I hope it’s going to end quite quickly, although I have questions on how efficient the measures are,” Kasia Gluc, 57, a graphic editor said on the Champs Elysees avenue in Paris.

France announces inadequate lockdown measures as coronavirus spreads
Yesterday evening, in a nationally televised addressed, French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced a set of limited and inadequate lockdown measures in the face of a rapid spread of the virus that is developing out of control.
The new rules apply to 16 departments, half of which are in the Ile-de-France region that encompasses the capital of Paris, as well as the Hauts-de-France region to the north, where total case numbers and the saturation of hospital units are particularly high. Stores and small businesses selling non-essential goods are to be closed. The population is to remain indoors, but can go outdoors with no time restriction within a radius of 10 kilometres from their homes.

French PM announces limited COVID-19 lockdown for Paris
French Prime Minister Jean Castex on Thursday announced a limited month-long lockdown for Paris and several other regions to combat surging Covid-19 cases, while insisting the measures would be less strict than in the past.
While non-essential businesses will close and movement outside will be restricted in the affected regions, schools will stay open and outdoor exercise allowed up to 10 kilometres (6 miles) from home, he said.
President Emmanuel Macron had so far resisted imposing a nationwide lockdown this year but his premier said the situation in Paris and elsewhere made the regionally-targeted measures affecting around a third of the country's population unavoidable.
