Coronavirus Curfew Brought forward in France on January 9

A large-scale test campaign has started in Paris because of the appearance of the mutated form of coronavirus. 

In other French departments, the evening curfew has been brought forward from 8 PM to 6 PM due to the coronavirus situation.

These include, for example, the Haut-Rhin and Bas-Rhin regions and Bouches-du-Rhône, which border Germany. The authorities are particularly concerned about the mutated form of the corona virus, which has increasingly appeared in Great Britain. Accordingly, 21 cases were discovered in Bouches-du-Rhône on the Mediterranean coast. There was a large-scale test campaign in Bagneux near Paris today after the mutated form had also occurred there.

France is badly affected by the pandemic. More than 67,000 people have died so far in connection with the corona virus.
