Removing the restrictions does not mean that coronavirus ceases to circulate in French territory, the French president warned.
French President Emmanuel Macron has announced the first victory over the epidemic of coronavirus. According to him, now the main task for France remains the economic revival of the country.
At the same time, the head of France asked the citizens of the country to remember that a complete victory over the infection has not yet been achieved.
“The fight against the epidemic is not over, but I am glad for you this first victory against the virus,” said the French leader.
According to Macron, French citizens will be able to freely travel to EU countries as early as June 15.
“From Monday, the French will be able to travel freely to EU countries,” he noted. “To other countries outside Europe with a normalized epidemiological situation – from July 1,” the head of state said.
In his address, the French president dwelt separately on the situation in nursing homes, emphasizing that “permission to visit older people in these institutions is necessary.”
Also, Macron recalled the equal rights of citizens and the need to fight against racism.
The French leader expressed support for the law enforcement officers, who provide a “republican order.” He stressed that in France not one of the monuments erected to the heroes of the country will be removed.
