President Macron Declares 2nd National Lockdown in France Over Surge In Coronavirus Cases

French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a second national lockdown for at least until the end of November.
Mr Macron said that under the new measures, starting on Friday, French people would only be allowed to leave home for essential work or medical reasons.

Non-essential businesses, such as restaurants and bars, will close, but schools and factories will remain open.

Covid daily deaths in France are at the highest level since April. On Tuesday, 33,000 new cases were confirmed.

Mr Macron said the country risked being “overwhelmed by a second wave that no doubt will be harder than the first”.
