France’s Health Minister, Olivier Veran, made this announcement after special government meetings on Saturday targeted on fighting the growing epidemic.

Coronavirus has so far infected over 80,000 people worldwide with over 2,900 fatalities.

As such, several countries have employed several measures to help combat the highly infectious disease.

So far, France has cancelled several events including a half-marathon scheduled for Sunday and a carnival in the Alpine town of Annecy, Veran.

The country banned public gathering completely in the Oise region north of Paris that has seen quite a high number of cases, and in a town in the foothills of the Alps with records of infections, Oliver Veran revealed.

Currently, 73 people have tested positive for covid-19 in France, up from 57 on Friday. The country has recorded 2 deaths and 12 recoveries. Meanwhile, 59 people remain hospitalized, according to local media.
