Emanuel Macron decides against third COVID lockdown in France

France’s President Emmanuel Macron has decided not to shut down France for the third time as the country is experiencing 24,000 new infections daily.

Starting on Sunday, France will close its borders to all non-essential travelers outside the European Union. Those traveling within the European Union must show a negative coronavirus test before re-entering.

But Macron stopped all businesses from ordering the closure.

“I trust us. Through these hours we are living are important. Let’s all together we can slow down the epidemic, He tweeted on Saturday.

France reported 24,393 additional positive COVID-19 tests on Friday.

A recent survey showed growing frustration with the rollout of vaccines and widespread belief that another lockdown was inevitable. As of Saturday, only 1.45 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had been administered. Israel, by comparison, had a turnover of 3.5 million a week earlier.
