French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe will announce the second phase of lifting restrictive measures since June 2, RFI reported.
According to him, the epidemiological situation in the country is better than we expected.
Four regions of France remain in a 'red' zone (meaning the virus is still active). These are Ile-de-France, Grand-Est, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte, and the overseas territory of Mayotte.
The rest of the country is in a 'green' zone, where most economic and social activities are expected to re-open from 2 June.
Nevertheless, many restrictions remain, the PM noted. In particular, there is a restriction on gatherings (no more than 10 people). The next, third phase of lifting restrictions should begin in the summer (presumably on June 21).
The quarantine in France was canceled on May 11, announcing the first phase of lifting sanitary restrictions.
Universal quarantine in connection with the COVID-19 crisis was declared in France on March 17. It acted for 55 days.
