Second coronavirus lockdown starts in France


Paris, Oct 30 (EFE), (Camera: : Ana Ayesa gonzález/Josep Puig).- France began a second lockdown on Friday with an air of resignation from a population accustomed to coronavirus restrictions, which are less strict than those enforced during the first confinement order back in spring.Parisians awoke to almost empty streets on Friday morning as residents here, like the rest of the country, are ordered only to leave the house if they have permission.It was a starkly different picture to Thursday night when the city’s main exits bore witness to a total of 730 kilometers of traffic jams — more than seven times the rush hour average — as those with second residences outside the city made a mad dash for the exit.The partial lockdown in France is due to last at least one month.FOOTAGE OF PARIS.SOUNDBITES OF:-BETTY, FLORIST:"We have the right to be open until Sunday (All Saints). After that, it will be a catastrophe""To take away yes, but if people cannot move, it is not better."-LIONEL,FLORIST:"They have given us three days to sell a quantity of flowers and plants for which we need 10 days""Another thing is that they tell us, well, you will have to close your shop. They announce us on Friday morning, you have three days to sell your stock. It is a shame, they do nothing""It really is the death of proximity trade"
