PARIS (Reuters) - Working from home remains highly recommended, French employment minister Elisabeth Borne said on Friday, as President Emmanuel Macron’s government battles to contain a likely second wave of the COVID-19 virus.
“It remains a practice that is highly recommended,” Borne told Sud Radio.
On Thursday, France registered a record 10,593 new confirmed coronavirus in the previous 24 hours. The death toll also rose by 50 to 31,095, the second-highest daily number of deaths in two months.
