As we've reported, France has announced that nightclubs in the country will be closed for the next four weeks, APA reports citing BBC.
During a press conference, PM Jean Castex said they would shut from from Friday in order to fight what he described as a fifth Covid-19 wave.
French health minister Olivier Véran announced that with an incidence rate of 400 per 100,000 cases, rates were already higher than in the peak of the third wave. The infection wave is stronger where the vaccine coverage is weaker, the health minister added.
In primary schools, children will have to wear a mask in the schoolyard as well as the classroom - as was already the case.
And French people aged over 65 will be able to get a booster dose of the Covid vaccine without an appointment. For now, no curfew or lockdown measures will be taken, the French PM said.
