LIVE Macron wants to give hungry students cheap food in coronacrisis

Even now that vaccination has begun, the coronavirus blown over from China continues to cause worldwide disruption. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 2 million people have died of the virus worldwide. In the Netherlands, about 13,000 people have succumbed to the virus. More than 100 million coronavirus infections have been detected worldwide. Follow the latest coronan news in this live blog.

President Emmanuel Macron promised in talks with students that two meals a day will be offered for 1 euro, because many students will no longer be able to feed properly due to the draconian corona measures. Numerous students in France have lost their jobs in cafes and restaurants, and because of the bans and ‘home studiing’, they are becoming increasingly isolated.

According to the news site BFMTV, which reported on Macron‘s visit to a university south of Paris, students are increasingly hungry without much freedom of movement and without financial resources. The President now promises two meals for 1 euro a day to all students regardless of where they come from or who finances their studies.

Like other sectors of society and economy, some of the education is badly affected by the corona measures. But Macron said that there can certainly be no question of normal education in universities until the summer. However, he sees opportunities for students to come to university one day a week, for example.
