France is finding it extremely difficult to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in its country, its top health official Jerome Salomon revealed today, presently authorities are seriously considering whether to implement a partial lockdown.
Salomon expressed his regret that many Parisians had left their homes in large numbers on Sunday despite a stern warning given to people to stay indoors and a government shutdown on bars and restaurants around the country.
“A lot of people are ignorant of the high risk of exposure and health threat they pose on themselves at this time if they can’t stay indoor, and since the citizens of France are not willing to adhere to simple instructions, it is now becoming difficult in curbing the deadly virus,” Salomon told France Inter radio”.
He also said that it would be “disastrous” if France will reach a stage where it would have to decide if it would have to salvage the lives of certain patients than others.
“This morning, I appeal to all French people to mobilize in the fight,” he said.
The number of deaths recorded in France from the coronavirus has increased by more than a third on Sunday to 127 and over 5,400 have been infected.
Sources told Get247News on Sunday that France is working on an order that would put restrictions on its citizens and under partial lockdown to combat the spread of the deadly virus, a move that would suffocate further restrictions on public life.
