France: Paris Landmarks Appear Empty After New Restrictions Introduced

Shops and restaurants appeared closed in Paris on Sunday, after authorities announced the temporary closure of all non-essential shops and services to public life from Sunday until further notice, in an attempt to slow down the coronavirus epidemic.

The measure applies to restaurants, cafes, cinemas and nightclubs, as well as non-essential businesses. French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe also called on French people to reduce their travel, especially between cities.

Footage shows some of the once-crowded landmarks as Avenue des Champs-Elysées, Louvre museum square, Eiffel Tower district and Hotel Lutetia district almost empty.

The number of coronavirus cases in France doubled in 72 hours as nearly 4,500 cases were infected and 91 lost their lives so far.
