On the morning of the 21st local time, French President Macron, who was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus, appeared again and presided over a ministerial-level video conference of the government.
He said at the meeting that the United Kingdom should be redoubled to be vigilant about the mutant coronavirus reported by the United Kingdom, which shows that the complexity and danger of the novel coronavirus, so it is necessary to be modest and cautious at all times.
Macron also said that France’s proportion of COVID-19 per 100,000 population has increased by 20% in the past week, and the number of hospital treatment cases is still on a high platform, which is very risky for the upcoming festival reunion.
Therefore, Macron asked the French government to be prepared to respond to the new situation.
However, the French government has not followed many neighboring countries to tighten prevention and control measures during the traditional festivals at the end of the year.
According to the original plan, the curfew currently implemented in France in the second phase of “unblocking” will also be temporarily lifted for family reunion meals on the evening of the 24th.
However, according to the research results released recently by the Pasteur Institute in France, the dining environment or one of the main scenes of the spread of the novel coronavirus has also raised concerns about the arrival of a new wave of epidemics after the year-end festival.
