French borders will be closing as the president calls on lock down. The French president said the EU’s external borders will shut for 30 days, but French nationals will be allowed home; travel across the Schengen Area’s internal borders will be severely restricted.
The army will deployed to ensure that the set regulations on the lock down are adhered to. Companies might not have to pay any tax and the government will guarantee 300-billion-euro loans to ensure no company will go bankrupt . This comes in the wake of gas, electricity ,water and rent bills being suspended.
Macron further announced on stringent measures such as ensuring transport will be heavily reduced and family meetings will no longer be allowed.
