Since April 3, quarantine measures will apply to all regions of France, which were previously in force only in 19 departments of the country. This was announced during a televised address to the nation by French leader Emmanuel Macron, TASS reports.
“The rules, which were previously introduced in 19 departments of the country, will be expanded to the entire territory of France on Saturday evening,” the head of state said.
The corresponding restrictions will operate over the next four weeks, the president said, explaining that these measures are associated with an increase in the spread of the British strain of coronavirus infection in the republic.
