Saturday’s tally marked the third consecutive day that numbers have reached record highs and comes amid concern over the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.

France reported a record high of 104,611 COVID-19 infections on Saturday, breaking the 100,000 threshold for the first time since the pandemic began.

Saturday’s tally marked the third consecutive day that numbers have reached record highs.

They come ahead of a video-conference meeting Monday in which President Emmanuel Macron and key members of his government will discuss new COVID-19 safety measures.

Officials are concerned about the effect of the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.

Already on Friday, the health authority recommended adults receive a booster jab three months after their initial vaccination.

Now the government is moving to make the health pass issued to the vaccinated valid only if people accept the booster jab.

The pass is required for access to cafés, restaurants and public spaces, as well as for international travel.

Some regions have already enacted their own safety measures.
