Curfew cost France billions of euros
The introduction of a curfew due to the coronavirus pandemic will cost the French economy more than two billion euros. This was announced by the Minister of Economy and Finance of the country Bruno Le Maire on the air of the radio station Europe 1.
He noted that this is a curfew in 56 departments for six weeks. The minister added that the French have no cause for concern. The authorities have allocated nine billion euros, of which six billion have already been spent, Le Maire said. According to him, the country will be able to recover its economic performance in 2022.
In mid-October, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the beginning of the second wave of the spread of coronavirus in the country. The French leader noted that the current situation is alarming. The politician said that a curfew will be introduced, which will operate from 21:00 to 06:00.
The coronavirus is spreading faster in France than in spring, Antoine Fontane, the country's leading epidemiologist, said on 23 October.
