Non-essential business places, such as: restaurants, stores, movie theaters and cafes will shut down in France.
The businesses will closed starting on Sunday due to the coronavirus infection that has affected the country.
French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has said that public services such as: banks, grocery stores and pharmacies will be allowed to remain open to the public.
Also, falling in the same direction is Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that the Israeli government has shut down restaurants, cafes and movie theaters to begin on Sunday as well.
More than 150,000 people world-wide have been infected by the coronavirus. Over 5,700 people have died from the virus.
Most people experience mild of moderate symptoms but the disease is highly contagious. Although most people recover from the disease, it is more likely to cause death to the elderly and people with underlying condition or a poor immune system.
Will more people die? Probably yes, but people die every year from a regular flu.
Still, it can be better to be safe than sorry. If you fit into the danger zone by your age or other reasons, stay away from crowds and wash your hands often.
