PARIS: French President Emmanuel Macron will deliver an update on Friday on how the Covid-19 restrictions will progressively be relaxed in the country, Prime Minister Jean Castex said on Wednesday.
“The epidemic situation continues to improve at a regular pace. Virus circulation remains high but is on a real downward trend even though its impact on hospitalisation is limited notably on the number of people in intensive care units,” Castex told reporters after a meeting of the French cabinet.
France‘s main Covid-19 indicators all showed some signs of improvement on Tuesday, with the seven-day moving of daily new infections falling to 27,856, standing below the 28,000 for the first time since more than a month.
