Emmanuel Macron again addresses the French at 8:00 p.m. to loosen the grip of confinement a little and set the course for the health crisis, while the country is hoping for a whiff of air as the Christmas holidays approach.

The Head of State has promised that he will give "consistency, clarity, a course" to "know together where we are going and how to get there". But Prime Minister Jean Castex, who is expected to speak Thursday afternoon, warned Monday evening that these announcements would only allow "a slight easing of confinement".

This cautious message echoes that of most leaders of major European countries, such as Britain's Boris Johnson, who warned on Monday that the restrictions were going to have to stay in place for several months. Like their neighbors, the French would particularly like to be focused on vacations: will they be able to travel and reunite with their family? Probably, but with limits, a possible curfew and a call for accountability. New Years Eve "are Covid factories", warned Jean Castex. Until the end of December, Emmanuel Macron will lift the constraints on Christmas shopping by reopening so-called "non-essential" businesses such as bookstores or clothing stores. This reopening could take place as early as this weekend but with a reinforced protocol. The ski resorts will be fixed "in the next ten days", Matignon promised.

The WHO calls for a Christmas in a small committee

A Christmas in a small committee, without large family reunion, is undoubtedly "the best option" in these times of pandemic for the majority of countries, estimated Monday the World Organization of Health (WHO).

His colleague Michael Ryan, in charge of emergency situations at the UN agency, stressed for his part that the number of infections increased in Canada after Thanksgiving, celebrated on November 12.

Macron’s liberal double standards .
Protests over freedom of speech in France come at a time when President Emmanuel Macron and his allies have been vigorously posturing over France’s liberal values. The French president was angered by outside criticism of domestic politics, particularly in the English-language press, that placed emphasis on the alienation of some ethnic minority communities in the country.
