Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “France Covid-19 protests: French hospital worker goes on hunger strike amid vaccine controversy” – below is their description.

Hospitals, care homes and health centres have suspended around 3,000 workers across France for failing to comply with mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations. Jabs became compulsory for health care workers in France on Wednesday with temporary suspensions coming into force yesterday for those who have not had the vaccine. The workers were suspended without pay but have not been sacked after a top courted ruled they could not be fired for refusing to get vaccinated. According to local daily Nice Matin, nearly 450 health workers – out of 7,500 – have been suspended in just one hospital in the city of Nice, in southern France. The government, however, shrugged off the impact. ‘It hasn’t been chaos, far from it,’ Health Minister Olivier Veran told French RTL radio, adding there were 27 million workers in the sector.
