FRANCE plans to extend its state of emergency until February 16 next year.

Government spokesman Gabriel Attal said officials are now considering extending the state of emergency until February 16e next year. He added that as the number of cases continues to rise, several other regions will go on red alert, which means they will be subject to curfews.

Currently, 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfews are in place. The plan to extend these measures until next year comes as France reported more than 30,000 cases on Friday, the highest since the start of the pandemic.

Mr Attal also said emergency rooms in hospitals across the country were now at 40% of capacity due to the massive influx of COVID-19 patients.

Paris hospitals went into emergency mode earlier this month, with coronavirus patients accounting for nearly half of all intensive care unit (ICU) patients.

Brigitte Macron, the French First Lady, began seven days of self-isolation after coming into contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19, officials said.
