French President Emmanuel Macron threatened to close France's border with Britain on Friday if Prime Minister Boris Johnson failed to take more stringent measures to contain the coronavirus outbreak, a French newspaper reported.
"We are at the start of this crisis".
France had already shut down restaurants and bars, closed schools and put ski resorts off limits, but Macron said measures unprecedented in peacetime were needed as the number of infected people doubled every three days and deaths spiraled higher. "We need to act on a large scale".
Earlier this week Mr Macron made a televised address to the nation where he said, "we are at war with the coronavirus" and introduced an Italian style lock down, allowing people to leave their homes for urgent tasks only.
The country is witnessing an nearly 40 percent increase in cases and deaths every day.Читайте также: Coronavirus: Federal Reserve unveils ‘bazooka’ programs to backstop USA economy
