Castex said: “We note that the situation is getting more serious, and we decided to suspend all flights between Brazil and France until further notice.” On Monday, Transport Minister Jean-Baptiste Djebari said that France “kept a few trips” with Brazil.

France is still suffering from the third wave of the Corona virus, as indicators do not show improvement in hospitals, with more than 99,000 deaths recorded and treatment for about 6 thousand people infected with Covid-19 in intensive care departments, which raises doubts about the possibility of easing restrictions.
