The pandemic has faded since its peak in February but seen a slight resurgence this month.

The number of active cases is now 37, but none of them needs hospital care.

The death toll from the pandemic is 648, with most fatalities registered during last year's outbreak with the Delta variant.

Vaccinations have continued and 81 percent of those 12 years and older have had two jabs.

International travel is being eased, with Paris dropping the requirement for unvaccinated travellers to provide an urgent reason to visit.
