French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a second national lockdown until at least the end of November. Mr. Macron said that under the new measures, starting on Friday, people would only be allowed to leave home for essential work or medical reasons.
Schools and factories will remain open but non-essential businesses, such as restaurants and bars will close. Mr. Macron said the country risk being overwhelmed by a second wave that no doubt will be harder than the first one.
Since April, Covid’s daily deaths in France are at the highest level. On Tuesday,33,000 new cases were confirmed. Meanwhile, Germany will impose an emergency lockdown that is less severe but includes the closure of restaurants, gyms, and theatres.Follow us in social media:
