France regaining control over coronavirus, says health minister

French Health Minister Olivier Veran speaks during a press conference to present the details of new restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), announced the day before by the president, in Paris, France

French Health Minister Oliver Veran said on Tuesday the country was regaining control over the coronavirus, but warned it was too early to claim victory.

“We are in a phase where the pandemic is decreasing, even if it remains at a high level”, he told BFM TV, a day after the daily tally of new cases dropped to a more than one-month low.

Veran said the virus was circulating a little less rapidly than at the start of the curfews and then the national lockdown put in place last month.
