Hind Al Soulia – Riyadh – PARIS — France will strengthen border controls and bring forward its night curfew by two hours to 6 p.m. for at least a fortnight as it tries to slow the spread of coronavirus infections, the French government said on Thursday.
France has the seventh-highest death toll in the world and the government is particularly worried by the more-transmissible coronavirus variant first detected in Britain, which now accounts for about 1% of new cases, according to Reuters.
The revised curfew will come into effect on Saturday. From Monday, all people traveling to France from outside the European Union will have to show a negative COVID-19 test and self-isolate for a week upon arrival.
A new protocol for EU countries will be worked on ahead of a European summit on Jan. 21, French Prime Minister Jean Castex told a news conference.
“We must do everything to prevent this variant from spreading and ensure that it does not become the dominant variant,” Castex said. — WAM
