France to start lifting coronavirus lockdown from Monday after 25,000 deaths and widespread disorder – The Sun

FRANCE is due to begin easing its coronavirus lockdown measures on Monday after suffering 25,000 deaths and widespread disorder.

Prime Minister Édouard Philippe detailed the plan to begin a “gradual and targeted” easing of measures on May 11.

The prime minister said Monday would mark the beginning of a “progressive” exit from lockdown.

It ends two months of strict confinement for France’s 67-million-strong population.

He said: “Next Monday will mark the start of a very gradual process stretching over several weeks at least, which will allow the country to emerge slowly but steadily from the lockdown.”
