CONFINEMENT – Curfew from 6 p.m. expanded to other departmentsor even generalized to the whole country? The executive must decide this Thursday, December 14 on new restrictions in the face of Covid-19.
Prime Minister Jean Castex will hold a press conference at 6 p.m., surrounded by six ministers (Olivier Véran for Health, Jean-Michel Blanquer for National Education, Bruno Le Maire for Economy, Elisabeth Borne for Work, Roselyne Bachelot for Culture and Frédérique Vidal for Higher Education).
If the extension of the curfew from 6 p.m. beyond the 25 departments already affected by the measure, seems acquired, according to theAFP, its extent remains to be determined. “The interest is to counter the ‘aperitif effect’,” acknowledged Wednesday evening the boss of La République en Marche, Stanislas Guerini to justify the measure which, according to him, has already allowed “less traffic” of the virus in territories where it already applies.
While several other European neighbors – the most recent, the Portuguesel – have decided to reconfine themselves, the French themselves seem to resign themselves to it. According to a Elabe poll for BFMTV made public Wednesday, January 13, they are 83% to think that a third confinement will take place “in the coming weeks”.
More than half of French people in favor of national reconfinement
According to the survey, 75% of people questioned say they are in favor of a new confinement “in the regions most affected by the epidemic” and 65% for a curfew from 6 p.m. in the most affected areas.
More than half of those questioned (52%) are in favor of a national re-containment while 47% of French people questioned are for a national curfew at 6 p.m. and 44% for a national curfew at 6 p.m. during the week and confinement national on weekends.
Another interesting figure: nearly all French people surveyed (94%) assure that they would respect the establishment of a national curfew or a third confinement throughout the territory (92%).
Elabe study carried out for BFMTV on a sample of 1003 people representative of the French population aged 18 and over. Survey conducted on the Internet on January 12 and 13, 2021.
