France’s COVID-19 cases exceeded the one million mark a week after the French President, Emmanuel Macron imposed a month-long curfew on Paris. Along with Paris, the other cities of France were also under the lockdown. Earlier, the Spanish government had also imposed a 15-day state of emergency in the Madrid region.

Meanwhile, the leaders of many European Union (EU) countries are imposing stricter COVID-19 restrictions on European countries. However, they are also trying to avoid national lockdowns. According to the World Health Organization, Europe has reported more than 977,000 new cases last week.

The government had asked the residents to stay within a 3-mile radius of their homes. Many businesses were closed in the country due to COVID-19. On Monday, Irish Deputy Minister Leo Varadkar said, “We can make sure the second wave is only a ripple. But that depends on all of us.”
