Macron to review COVID-19 situation tomorrow amid surge in cases

President Emmanuel Macron and some senior cabinet ministers will review the COVID-19 situation on 29 December, with new measures likely to take place as of Wednesday, the Elysee said today, amid another surge in cases that has spurred fears of a third lockdown in France.

France reported 8,822 new COVID-19 infections on Sunday, sharply up from Saturday’s 3,093.

The reevaluation comes as the European Union rolled out a massive COVID-19 vaccination drive on Sunday to try to rein in a pandemic that has crippled economies worldwide and claimed more than 1.7 million lives.
