World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

New restrictions in France, still no end for quarantine in sight


French President Emmanuel Macron addresses the people for the third time on Monday evening (8.02 p.m.) to combat the new corona virus. According to French media, he does not provide relief to the population, but will come up with more measures and will considerably extend the lockdown. Macron believes the time has come to relax measures, as the virus is not getting much weaker and he fears the worst is yet to come.

The number of people entering intensive care as a result of the virus is falling, but lung disease continues to be fatal in the country that has already registered around 14,000 deaths and diagnosed approximately 130,000 infections.

Macron will call for more effort and may also speak of mandatory masks to be worn, tracking of patients and their environment through cell phone data, and the opening of educational institutions for the next school year beginning in September.

The president speaks to an audience that pollsters believe has become less and less confident in his strict approach, and an audience that fears a longer lockdown will not survive economically.
