Reports of bedbugs infestations in Paris have caused concern among officials who are taking action to combat the problem.
There have been sightings of the insects in various locations across the city, including public transportation and cinemas.
Videos on social media have highlighted the issue, and French authorities are working to coordinate efforts to address the problem.
The health agency ANSES has reported that 11% of households in the country have been affected by bedbug infestations from 2017 to 2022.
Despite the upcoming 2024 Paris Olympics, officials have stated that the bedbugs do not pose a threat to the event.
The rise in travel and insecticide resistance has been cited as possible reasons for the increase in bedbug infestations.
