The French authorities may end the quarantine regime on December 15. French President Emmanuel Macron said this on Tuesday during a televised address to the nation.
“Depending on the development of the situation and epidemiological indicators, quarantine may be canceled on December 15,” the French leader said. At the same time, he said that with the abolition of quarantine, a curfew would be introduced from 21:00 to 07:00. An exception will be made only for Christmas and New Years’ — December 24 and 31.
“Thus, starting from December 15, everyone will be able to freely move around the country again without special permission, including between different regions, as well as celebrate Christmas with their relatives,” the president stressed.
At the same time, Macron explained that the abolition of quarantine is possible if the number of daily detected cases of coronavirus infection “is below 5 thousand,” and “no more than 2-3 thousand people will be in intensive care.” However, he called on the population to refrain from moving without a good reason.
