France to impose nightly curfew due to COVID-19

France to impose nightly curfew due to COVID-19”

President Emmanuel Macron announced that 18 million French citizens in nine regions, including in Paris, will have a curfew starting Saturday through December 1.

Recipients of the income support benefit Revenu de Solidarité Active (RSA) and housing benefit Aide personnalisée au logement (APL) will receive aid of €150, and €100 per child, over the next six weeks, Mr Macron said.

Macron acknowledged the measure was hard on young people, but that the health crisis left little choice.

Although some public health experts questioned the efficacy of a nighttime lockdown on virus circulation - especially because so many French virus clusters have been traced to workplaces - Macron was adamant that this is the right course. He said France had not lost control of the virus, but added: "We are in a worrying situation".

He warned anyone breaking the curfew rules would face a hefty fine.

Macron said 32 percent of France's 5,000 intensive care places were now occupied by coronavirus patients, a proportion that needed to be brought down to "10 to 15 percent at most". Some 33,000 people have died from coronavirus in France.

The French government on Wednesday declared a public health state of emergency, giving officials greater powers to impose new measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
