Tuesday at 8 pm, when he will address the French again, Emmanuel Macron will not announce the end of confinement: “Today, the level of circulation of the virus in the country is the same as at the time of the cover. -fire, recalls the Head of State in the columns of the Sunday Newspaper. There is no question of deconfining ”.
But it is nevertheless a question of putting an end to “uncertainty” on the health crisis, by bringing “clarity” and “a course”, according to his remarks reported by our colleagues.
Nothing is worse than uncertainty and the impression of endless gloom ”, assures the President of the Republic. We have to know together where we are going and how to get there. It is difficult, because the pandemic is inherently unpredictable and global, ”he explains,“ but it is the key to trust, which itself is the key to success. “

According to Mr. Macron, “there is no inevitability. Crises can ultimately accelerate progress. We must be at the rendezvous of History. And France has all the assets to be so ”.
Three stages of relaxation, details Gabriel Attal
Government spokesman Gabriel Attal specifies in the same newspaper as the government that the “easing” of confinement “will be done in three stages with regard to health developments and the risks associated with certain activities: first around the 1st December, then before the end of year holidays, then from January 2021 ”.
However, “the confinement will continue and therefore the limitation of travel too”, confirms Gabriel Attal. A certificate to travel will always be necessary beyond December 1, Prime Minister Jean Castex had already indicated.
He confirms the horizon of a reopening of shops “around December 1”, stressing that “the president is aware of the efforts made and attached to the value of work”, but that “certain establishments, such as bars and restaurants, will continue to know restrictions ”.
For vaccines, Gabriel Attal says that France has three contracts “signed, at least three others very advanced and others under discussion”, with “on average 30 million doses per contract”. The question of a compulsory vaccine or not, which divides the political class, “will arise when we know the properties of vaccines,” he said.
The spokesperson also considers “interesting”, “in a personal capacity”, the possibility of making compulsory the isolation of positive cases and contact cases. “Many of our neighbors have done it and I hear French people who feel they are undergoing constraints that could be alleviated if we concentrate efforts on the chains of contamination,” he argues.
Finally, he criticizes the oppositions which, “in the absence of a constructive spirit” have “found themselves within a council of defiance”.
