Written by admin
There is a very strange tradition in France. On the last day of every year, damaged and crashed cars are set on fire here. Last year, many Corona restrictions remained in force in France, due to which the number of vehicles burning was low. A total of 874 vehicles were torched in France on New Year’s Eve. This is a decades old tradition in the country. However, due to restrictions related to coronavirus, this figure is less than in previous years.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darminin gave this information. The ministry issued a press release on Saturday in which it was informed that a total of 1,316 cars were set ablaze in 2019. However, this year more people were questioned than in previous years. This year the figure stood at 441 as compared to 376 in 2019. 31 people were taken in for questioning after cars were torched in Strasbourg, northeastern France.

Interrogation of minors who broke curfew
Officials said that six minors were involved in the interrogation who broke the curfew. France is battling a very deadly wave of Corona. Its effect was also seen on New Year’s celebrations. The government has suggested a new system for the safety of the people, under which the ‘Health Pass’ so far implemented in the country has been converted into ‘Vaccine Pass’. In June last, the French government issued a health pass, which people could use to go to public places.

Health pass will be available only after showing vaccination certificate
Till now, it was mandatory to show the negative report of the corona test conducted within the last 24 hours in Health Pass Russia. But according to the new proposed rule, now it will be necessary to show the vaccination certificate while traveling somewhere. People will now be able to get this pass only after showing the vaccination certificate or proof of recovery from corona.
