More COVID-19 restrictions may be needed in France if situation worsens: government adviser

Parts of France enter a new month-long lockdown amid the spread of the coronavirus disease

PARIS (Reuters) – More restrictions aimed at tackling the COVID-19 pandemic may be needed for France, if the current measures do not result in the situation improving, French epidemiologist and government scientific adviser Arnaud Fontanet told BFM TV on Tuesday.

Last week, France imposed a month-long lockdown on Paris and parts of the north after a faltering vaccine rollout and spread of highly contagious coronavirus variants forced President Emmanuel Macron to shift course.
