French Health Workers Protest in Paris Demanding Better Working Conditions

Macron said new daily coronavirus cases must be brought down to '3,000 or 5,000' from current levels which have reached up to almost 27,000

Macron said new daily coronavirus cases must be brought down to '3,000 or 5,000' from current levels which have reached up to almost 27,000

In a televised interview on Wednesday, Macron said residents of those cities would not be allowed outdoors between 9pm (19:00 GMT) and 6am (04:00 GMT) from Saturday, for at least four weeks, except for essential reasons. Paris and many other cities in France have been declared "high-risk" zones, requiring bars to shut down.

The situation is worrying and the curfew is a "pertinent" measure while having the whole country locked down again would be "disproportionate", he explained.

France has reported over 30,000 new coronavirus cases in one day - a rise of over 8,000. This, obviously, goes for businesses as well, including restaurants, venues and cinemas. On the other hand, the performance of the Head of State did not improve his image: six out of ten French people were not convinced by the words of Emmanuel Macron. "What else can we do?"

Marseille's Mayor Michele Rubirola - herself a doctor - contested a measure she said resulted from the government's insufficent efforts to bolster hospital systems over the last few months.

Prime Minister Jean Castex confirmed Thursday that the curfew requires almost all businesses would have to shut their doors, except for essential services, with "everybody home from 9 to 6".

On the subject of working from home, he reiterated that it was recommended, but did not bring in rules forcing either businesses or employees to follow the guidelines, pointing out that for some people - those living in small homes with young children for example - working from home is very hard.

The president said that the coronavirus was spreading at parties and private gatherings, adding that action was needed "now".

"We have to act".
