'France closer to gaining control over Corona'


French Health Minister Olivier Vernon has said that the country is gradually regaining control of the COVID-19 virus, which is still active but has continued to decline for the past few weeks.

Mr. Vernon said this to the RMC broadcaster on Tuesday. He said the spread of the virus has been much lower than in October when curfew and the nationwide lockdown was implemented to prevent the spread of the virus. "We are still in the grip of virus infection, but we are also in the process of regaining control over the dynamics of the epidemic," said Mr. Vernon. This means that the steps taken by the government are working.

He said the state of health is still uncertain in terms of the lockdown being removed and businesses being able to operate again. Meanwhile, health officials said they have seen a decrease in the rate of virus infection over the past week, with the lowest daily number of new cases being reported on Monday at 9,4,06. The second wave of the Coronavirus outbreak has started in the country. As of Tuesday, more than 45,000 people have died of corona in France and so far coronavirus infection has been confirmed in 2,000,000 people.
