Macron humiliated! Why French President had to roll back on UK travel ban

What’s more, France is currently posting comparable numbers of coronavirus infections as the UK, and the Omicron variant is already circulating throughout the country.

The prevalence of Omicron has already helped drive infection numbers across the channel to a record 232,000 new cases yesterday.
