Emmanuel Macron, president of France, announced this Wednesday at the last minute that the country will return to national confinement from this friday to face the advance of the coronavirus.
I decided that it was necessary to impose, as of Friday, the confinement, "he asserted before lamenting that "We have to accept the situation of the epidemic" in France.
"The virus circulates at a speed that even the most pessimistic forecasts did not anticipate," he asserted. Thus, it has specified that, "unlike the first wave, all the regions are today on alert."
France is not the only country that has taken restrictive measures on Wednesday. Germany has decreed the closure of bars, restaurants and cultural entertainment, which include theaters, cinemas and gyms, starting next Monday.
