French president Emmanuel Macron will on Friday set out how Covid-19 restrictions will progressively be relaxed in the country, prime minister Jean Castex said on Wednesday, APA reports citing The Guardian.

“The epidemic situation continues to improve at a regular pace. Virus circulation remains high but is on a real downward trend even though its impact on hospitalisation is limited notably on the number of people in intensive care units,” Castex told reporters after a meeting of the French cabinet.

France’s main Covid-19 indicators all showed some signs of improvement on Tuesday, with the seven-day average of daily new infections falling to 27,856, moving below the 28,000 mark for the first time in more than a month.
