‘We have to act’: France’s Macron orders curfews to contain COVID

President Emmanuel Macron has announced a curfew for Paris and eight other cities to combat the rapid spread of COVID-19 in France.
He has stopped short of introducing travel restrictions or a national lockdown, saying they would hit the economy too hard.

Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler reports from Paris, France.

    Any one who recommends Lockdowns or curfews to contain COVID-19 is living in fools paradise. Our past experience proved it.

    "We have to act" yet is doing nothing to act. This guy is a joke. Worst even he thinks he is Napolean and is superior to Putin, in his own words. And somehow inbetween he has a colonial complex to "help" or rather comment on issues in Lebanon, Mali, Brazil, Libya and ex-french-colonies of Africa.

    Wait until it gets really bad again to act. Not getting it down to 0 before just let a few hundred cases a day… Or as soon as you saw it coming back give few days for the contact tracing and get it to 0.

    Macron SHOULD be more careful. He shouldn't be another rising Hitler. There is one already there in India and the world is already tired of him.

    Macron, it is your choice – either be a leader in the true meaning of the word or resign to prevent another humanitarian disaster in Europe.

    Pretext for putting people in submission! The tool politicians discovered to gain control again after loosing credibility and confidence around the world. Obedient people is what they want! Shut up and stay separated so we the state can control you!
