Things deteriorate again in France
The French government has once again prepared for a lockdown in the country. However, this time it will be at the regional level rather than at the national level. In easy language understanding, lockdown will be imposed in some limited areas. Strictness will be higher in those areas where cases are increasing rapidly or where clusters have been found.
Prime Minister Jean Castex confirmed the consideration of the lockdown Thursday night. On Thursday, 25 thousand 435 cases were reported in France. It can be estimated from how fast these are increasing that 22 thousand 501 cases were reported in the last full week. That is, the number recorded on Thursday is much higher than the total number of cases in the last week. The national lockdown was lifted two months earlier in France.
