PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday announced he was extending a virtual lockdown to curb the coronavirus outbreak until May 11, adding that progress had been made but the battle not yet won.
“Over the next four weeks, the rules must be respected,” the president said in a televised address to the nation.
He said that by May 11, France would be able to test every citizen presenting COVID-19 symptoms.
