While talking to the media, the Prime Minister said, "We are adopting the 3rd way, how that ought to allow braking (of the epidemic) without locking (people) up." He further added that the said measures are taken in sight of rising COVID-19 cases, which as per records, stated that around 1200 people are in medical care within the Paris region alone.


He emphasized that those from the affected regions won't be allowed to leave, apart from essential business, said Castex. He mentioned that although this won't be not excellent news for those living in those regions, restrictions imposed on this point are going to be less severe. He assured that the confinement measures won't be a repeat of these that they imposed in March when the COVID pandemic hit the country.
