France’s stay-at-home lockdown extended until April 15th

France has extended its stay-at-home lockdown by two weeks until April 15th in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Originally set in place on the 17th of March for two weeks, the scale of the epidemic has lead to the extended date.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe stated that an extra two weeks may also be added to April 15th if conditions require it.
