Bars and restaurants to be shut in four more cities in France

After Marseille and Paris, the cities of Lyon, Lille, Grenoble and Saint-Etienne will close their bars and restaurants from Saturday.

The maximum-alert level in the country comes into effect when infection rates in a locality exceed 250 cases per 100,000 people, and at least 30% of intensive care beds are reserved for Covid-19 patients.

The French government announced the measures as the country had a near-record of 18,129 new cases in a day.
