France resumes lockdown to face second wave of 'harder and more deadly'

France will resume a nationwide lockdown on Thursday night in a bid to stem the progress of the Covid-19 epidemic.

The lockdown will continue until at least December 1st.

President Emmanuel Macron said he hopes to raise it by Christmas.

“The virus is spreading in France at a rate that even the most pessimistic person would not expect,” Macron said in a televised speech. The number of contaminants doubled in two weeks. Yesterday, 527 of our Companions Kovid-19 passed away. Yesterday we counted about 3,000 people in the intensive care unit, which is more than half of our national capacity.

In the seven days from October 19 to 26, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control reported 254,000 new Kovid-19 cases in France, making it the fastest-growing European country in the world.

This lockdown will be different from the 55 days of closure last spring in three main ways: primary and secondary schools will remain open, however, universities will be required to teach online. Patients in care homes can receive visitors, who wear masks and social distances. Public services will be open.

Bars and restaurants will be closed to all except Takeaway. Unnecessary shops should be closed. Citizens and residents are required to fill out a form each time they go to work or exercise to care for a close relative, attend a medical appointment, or purchase groceries.
