PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday that mainland France would go into a so-called “green zone” from Monday with restaurants reopening in Paris as the country has been gradually exiting a strict lockdown due to the coronavirus since May 11.
“The fight against the virus is not finished,” the president said in a televised address to the nation. “Gatherings will remain tightly controlled.”
