The new lockdown measures in France will stay in place until 1 December, President Macron said.
He also said the situation would be reviewed in 15 days to see if shops could be reopened.
We have to hold firm, stand shoulder to shoulder, we can only rise if we remain united.
I count on each of you. I will be there, we will be there and we will get there all together. Vive la République and vive la France.
President Macron has imposed a new nationwide lockdown in France as Covid-19 cases surge.
The new measures echo the eight-week lockdown that France enforced in the spring, when hospitalisations and deaths caused by Covid-19 reached a peak.
