COVID-19: France extends its ‘state of health emergency’ by two months

French Health Minister Olivier Véran has stated that France will remain in its ‘state if health emergency’ until July 24th.

The proposal will be put to parliament on Monday which states that lifting restrictions this month would be “premature” and could intensify the outbreak.

In France alone, 24,500 people have died from Covid-19.

French President Emmanuel Macron stated that the exit from lockdown would not signal a return to “normal life”.

Some restrictions are to be eased on May 11th.
