The health consequences but also significant economic. The Economic Analysis Council has assessed in a report (PDF) released Tuesday, January 18, the impact of the introduction of health pass on the evolution of the epidemic Covid-19 as well as on the economy French. To reach these conclusions, the ACE has modeled "that vaccination dynamic would have been without the implementation of the past." "We expected an effect but it is more than expected," admitted the mathematician-economist Miquel Oliu Barton, co-author of the study, USAinformations. Here are five numbers that reveal the impact of the introduction of this device - which will soon be replaced by a vaccination pass.

1 A vaccination rate leaping

The health pass first had the effect of encouraging the French to be vaccinated against the Covid-19. Without the health pass, "the vaccination rate was 65.2% against 78.2%," notes the Council's report of economic analysis. Its introduction has therefore helped advance the vaccination rate by 13 percentage points.

Based CAE calculations, it is in France that the effect of pass health was strong read, in comparison with Germany or Italy, where he has also been set up to summer 2021. in Germany, the vaccination rate would have been 67.3% without sanitary pass while vaccination rates observed is 73.5%.

Thousands of preventable hospitalizations If the vaccination campaign was not boosted by the health pass, the number of hospital admissions at the end of 2021 would have been approximately 31% higher in France, according to the report. The Council of Economic Analysis estimates as has prevented 32,065 hospitalizations.

The introduction of health Pass also reduced the number of patients in intensive care because of Covid-19. According to the EAC, it would have been "about 45% higher than that observed with the health pass" end 2021. A difference "is not trivial," points the report, since it "would have resulted in levels hospital pressure above the levels achieved during previous confinements. "

Establishing the health pass thus avoided exceed occupancy thresholds for these beds, one of the indicators used by the government to decide previous confinements. And this limited pressure on intensive care units has allowed, according to the Economic Analysis Council, not to take more stringent measures to curb the epidemic, which would have "significant social and economic consequences."

Again, in comparison with Germany and Italy, it is in France that the health pass had the most impact, "allowing people vaccinated have, with less risk, more interaction social and economic and indirectly by reducing the need for restrictions put in place by the authorities. "
