With several countries in Europe facing the misery of lockdowns being enforced over the festive period and lasting well into January France is replacing it’s lockdown with curfews.
Countries in Europe face miserable Christmas lockdowns but France escapes: However there is a warning for them to only allow 6 adults per family get together over the Christmas period. The Netherlands and Germany have seen infection rates soar which means they will be in confinement until early next year. French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced last week that the lockdown will be lifted on the 15th December but a curfew of 8pm will be in place.
Christmas Eve will be exempt from this however New Year’s Eve won’t be so no celebrating for the French as the clock strikes 12. The French public will be allowed to travel to families to celebrate with a recommendation of 6 people but this will NOT be enforced. Lockdown measures were changed because the target of 5,000 new infections per day was not met.
Instead, the level of new Covid-19 cases plateaued around 12,000 for about one week, without numbers going down. On 14 December, the figure dropped to 3,063, but are likely to go up again later in the week.
