France Junior Minister of Relations with Parliament Marc Fesneau said that the country is not yet ready to reopen shops selling ‘non-essential’ goods. 

On the reopening of said shops, Fesneau said, “not at this stage,” and explained that when the lockdown proves to be effective in decreasing the number of Covid-19 cases, they will then evaluate the safety to reopen businesses. 

Despite two weeks into the new lockdown, France still recorded a surge of 57,609 thousand cases on Wednesday, bringing the total number of cases at 1,914,919, based on the latest data by John Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. 

Director General Jérôme Salomon of the country’s public health agency, Santé Publique France said on Monday that “The peak of the epidemic is coming. The second wave is still progressing”. He added that there were developments in regions which had imposed curfews.
