France to extend coronavirus emergency for two months

France will extend a health emergency imposed to fight the new coronavirus pandemic for another two months until July 24, Minister of Health Olivier Veran has said.

A draft law says a lifting this month of the emergency, which began on March 24, would be premature and carry the risk of an intensifying outbreak.

“We are going to have to perform a long-distance run,” Veran said on Saturday, adding he was aware that the French people had already been asked for “colossal efforts” in the fight against the virus.

The bill will go before the Senate on Monday and the National Assembly most probably the day after, said government spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye. It is expected to become law by the end of the week.
