The French government is expected to unveil tighter coronavirus restrictions for Paris today following a cabinet meeting, BFM TV and Le Parisien newspaper said.
Among the measures planned are a ban on public gatherings of more than 10 people while attendance at major events could be limited to 1,000 people from the 5,000 allowed now, the reports said.
The new rules for Paris, if confirmed, would follow similar measures in Lyon, Marseille, Bordeaux and Nice as the coronavirus resurges across the country.
