French President, Emmanuel Macron declares another nationwide lockdown for November

France is about to go on another nationwide lockdown as President Emmanuel Macron announces a second national lockdown for at least the whole of November, to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

“I have decided that we have to, as of Friday, return to confinement,” Macron said, in a live televised speech on Wednesday evening, October 28th.

The lockdown, which will be in place until December 1st, will be less rigid than the one France lived through this spring, the president said.

“Schools will stay open, work can continue and elderly nursing homes can be visited,” Macron said.
