Macron’s televised appearance will come on a day when the government may announce a series of new measures in the face of the increase in Covid-19 cases and the increase in the number of patients in intensive care.

Last weekend, four French cities – Lille, Lyon, Grenoble and Saint-Étienne – were placed on high alert following Paris and other metropolises where bars were closed and restaurants are forced to take measures to additional security to contain the epidemic.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex warned Monday that the country is “in a strong second wave” of the epidemic and “there can be no further relaxation”.

Speaking on French television last week, Macron said the virus had spread faster in recent weeks.

“In places where it is spreading too quickly, especially where it is spreading among the elderly most at risk, and where there are more and more intensive care beds occupied, we need to make more restrictions. “, He declared on French television.
