Due to the French government's new rules of Covid vaccination, world number one tennis player Novak Djokovic will be seen playing at the French Open in May despite not getting vaccinated. Djokovic was not allowed to play at the Australian Open due to not following Australia's strict corona vaccination rules and has also been deported from the country.
Initially, it seemed that he could not even play the French Open. A new law in France also does not allow people who have not been vaccinated against corona to enter stadiums, restaurants, bars or other public places.
French Sports Minister Roxana M has said that as soon as the law is about to be passed, vaccination passes are going to be mandatory for entry to every public place. This is also going to apply to audiences, French or foreign professionals. Under this law, which came into effect from Monday, a person who has given proof of being infected with Covid in the last six months is not going to be required to show this pass. Which means Djokovic could play the French Open in May-June since he was infected in mid-December. The French Sports Ministry could not answer questions on Djokovic's case.
