France declares public health state of emergency over COVID-19: “The COVID-19 epidemic constitutes a public health disaster which, by its character and its severity, puts at risk the health of the population,” the government said in a statement announcing the state of emergency. The statement did not say what action the government would take, but the adoption of a state of emergency gives the authorities statutory powers to impose tough measures.
President Emmanuel Macron is expected to detail the measures at around 8 p.m. (1800 GMT) on Wednesday.
French media reported that a night curfew between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. was one of the measures Macron would unveil. Full story:

UPDATE Wednesday 11pm
Paris Back Under Curfew Amid Spike In Covid: Paris and eight other French cities will be placed under a 9pm curfew from this weekend following a major surge in coronavirus cases, President Emmanuel Macron has announced.
The curfew will last from 9pm until 6am and will come into force at midnight on Saturday. Macron said the curfew will last for up to 4 weeks but could be prolonged to 1 December if cases continue to rise. Other cities where curfew measures will be imposed include Grenoble, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Rouen, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse.
