France sees the Covid-19 outbreak accelerating after a surge in infections but wants to avoid a new nationwide lockdown, Prime Minister Jean Castex said on Friday.

“There is a ‘marked deterioration’ in the spread of COVID-19 in France that has” not lost its intensity “and” will be with us for a few more months, “said PM Castex in a televised statement in Paris.

However, he didn’t announce any major new restrictions, saying France’s goal was to “avoid a general lockdown” and live successfully with the virus through social distancing, wearing masks and ramping up tests.
