PARIS (Reuters) – The situation in China, where a second wave of infection by the coronavirus is to be feared, is “disturbing” but the trends in France remain positive, the Minister of Labour, Muriel Penicaud, said Wednesday.

“We have chosen a gradual and controlled easing of a lock. At this stage, we are in a positive dynamic. I am in the process of working with my teams and with the social partners on a thinning of the relaxation protocol for the businesses,” Penicaud told Radio Classique.
