France to increase 'health pass' checks amid spike in COVID-19 cases
Ross Cullen in Paris
The French government "will tighten the health pass controls in the coming weeks," a spokesman warned. Gabriel Attal was speaking on Wednesday after President Emmanuel Macron's latest address to the nation on November 9.
Attal said "the deterioration of the epidemic situation is clear. The warning signs are multiplying."
He was speaking after Macron's ninth primetime TV speech since the start of the pandemic in France in early 2020.
