France promises 1 billion euros for curfew-hit companies

France promises 1 billion euros for curfew-hit companies”

Macron called the curfew an "appropriate" measure, adding that the government did want to re-impose a second complete lockdown on the country, which he said was "disproportionate".

The curfew does not ban driving between 9 p.m.to 6 a.m., but travel will be strictly limited unless with good reasons.

"A curfew will apply to the Ile-de-France region...and eight metropolitan areas - Grenoble, Lille, Rouen, Lyon, Aix-Marseille, Saint-Etienne, Toulouse, Montpellier and Rouen", Macron said in a televised interview, Xinhua news agency reported.

"We have now entered a phase to which we must react..." "We won't be partying with friends because we know that that's where the infection risk is greatest". "We are going to have to deal with this virus until at least the summer of 2021".

Health authorities reported Thursday a record 30,621 new cases in the past 24 hours and 88 deaths, and over 200 new Covid admissions to intensive care units.

Shortly before the curfew was announced, the French government moved to reinstate a public health state of emergency in a bid to curb an uptick in coronavirus infections across the country.

Macron said new daily coronavirus cases must be brought down to "3,000 or 5,000", from current levels, which have reached up to nearly 27,000.

Restaurant owners have also complained bitterly about a measure they say makes little sense given the strict social distancing rules they have already applied, and noting that groups of less than six can still gather for lunch.
