Issued on:

French President Emmanuel Macron addresses the nation on Tuesday evening where he is expected to outline an easing of France’s lockdown restrictions after a recent drop in new Covid-19 infections. Watch the speech live on FRANCE 24 from 8pm (GMT+2). 

Shops are widely expected to be cleared for reopening next week, in time for the Christmas shopping period which is crucial for many retailers who have been lobbying hard for a return to business. Bars and restaurants are expected to remain closed until mid-January.

Macron will also outline France’s strategy to procure coronavirus vaccines as trial successes reported by some laboratories spark a worldwide scramble for Covid-19 shots.
