France's Le Maire: Govt. Should Avoid Extra Restrictions

Speaking to a news outlet, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire recently reaffirmed that the country's GDP should grow by 6% this year, adding that the government is not planning to tax the French people's income. According to Le Maire, the government is planning to continue providing aid while pledging not to withdraw it in a brutal manner.

He also said that all options are on the table in terms of protecting the health of the French citizenry, which is currently suffering a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, he highlighted that the government should avoid imposing stricter restriction measures. Currently, there are no plans to change the list of businesses that are required to be closed as part of the restrictions.

So far, 4,545,589 COVID-19 infections have been reported in France, as well as a death toll of 94,596, making France one of the most affected countries in Europe.
