A Paris court has determined that the French government was unable to stop the spread of the coronavirus in 2020 by keeping an adequate supply of surgical masks on hand.
(AP) PARIS — To stop the coronavirus pandemic from spreading in 2020, a Paris court determined on Tuesday that the French government has inadequate surgical mask supplies.
The decision was made as coronavirus variant illnesses that have been officially reported are dramatically increasing. It wasn’t immediately obvious whether the choice would subject the administration to any particular punishment.
French officials are considering new steps to stop the virus’ spread while maintaining the country’s economy during the busy summer travel season, including requiring indoor masks in some towns.
According to the court’s decision, “the government is at blame for failing to assure an adequate quantity of masks to combat a pandemic linked to a highly pathogenic respiratory agent.”
Additionally, the Paris Administrative Court determined that the administration erred in asserting that masks are ineffective at preventing the COVID-19 virus from spreading at the outset of the epidemic.
However, the court ruled that neither of the government’s errors was the cause of any particular instances of viral infection.
