All French regions placed on high virus alert - Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron announced on Wednesday that all of the country's regions have been placed on high alert in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.

Addressing the nation from the Elysee Palace in a televised speech, the French president noted that the second wave of the pandemic will "likely to be worse than the first one." The disease is now "circulating more quickly than" estimated, Macron stressed.

One of the additional lockdown measures will entail that official documents will again be needed for people to "go about their business," he also revealed, adding that despite the introduction of the new restrictions on Friday, October 30, the schools will remain open.
