Macron to address the nation as France’s epidemic surges

1 Mins read

PARIS (AP) – French President Emmanuel Macron scheduled a televised address to the nation for Wednesday night, a possible precursor of tighter restrictions to combat surging coronavirus hospitalizations.

Macron announced previous nationwide lockdowns in March and October of 2020 in televised speeches. His office said Wednesday that Macron would address the nation at 8 p.m. (1800 GMT), without saying what he would announce.

Ahead of his weekly coronavirus strategy meeting Wednesday with ministers and aides, Macron was under intensifying pressure to close schools and further restrict people’s movements to ease the growing pressure on hospitals.

The total number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care in France surged past 5,000 on Tuesday, the first time in 11 months that the figure has been that high Short of a complete lockdown, Macron is running out of alternatives to make a significant dent in the renewed surge of infections that has led to growing questions about his government’s virus strategies. With presidential elections scheduled for 2022, Macron has to weigh both political and health considerations.
