France will go into a nationwide lockdown on Friday as Covid-19 cases surge in the country, French President Emmanuel Macron announced today.

Macron announced the measures in a televised address to the nation on Wednesday evening, adding that measures already taken "are not enough."

Under the new lockdown, people will need a certificate to move around; nonessential businesses, restaurants and bars will be closed; schools will remain open, people can go to work and care homes visits will be allowed.

Macron warned that by mid-November all intensive care unit beds would be taken by Covid-19 patients unless a “brake” is put on the virus.
