Macron to summarise the impact on Sunday


President Macron is due to broadcast a live summary of the coronavirus status on Sunday at 8pm, both on television and online.

He is likely to reveal the effects of the deconfinement, and the impact on the health services.  There may also be updates on whether the state of emergency may end on 10 July.

We also may hear about his plans for getting the economy moving in the right direction.

The start of the next stage of deconfinement is due on 22 June, and spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye said: “Even though the epidemic is under control, the virus is still present in the country… [and meetings this week will] allow us to see what is possible to evaluate when it comes to 22 June”.
