France to deploy 12,000 police to enforce corona curfews

Paris bars closed as French capital placed on maximum COVID alert

PARIS (Reuters) – Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said 12,000 police officers would be deployed to enforce curfews in major cities across France from Saturday.

Police would not enforce the “rule of six” on private gatherings, he added.

Macron ordered the curfews in Paris and eight other big cities on Wednesday to tackle a second wave of coronavirus infections.
