French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe’s office said today, Wednesday, that the government is examining the possibility of lifting the emergency health measures imposed to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic on July 10.
He added that the proposed July 10th date is one of several options that are currently being discussed.
After the data showed signs that the virus might fade in the country, France eased many of the strict isolation measures and gradually allowed the reopening of shops, resorts, and attractions.
Despite this, the authorities still urge citizens to use the masks when leaving the house and adhere to a social spacing of distances of at least one meter between each other while most employees continue to work from the home instead of the office.
Official data released on Tuesday showed that the death toll from the Coronavirus in France increased 87 to 29,296. This is the highest daily toll since June 2, but it remains below 100 for the seventh day in a row.
