French Prime Minister Jean Castex urged people not to let guard down in the fight against coronavirus, after an increasing number of infections in the country.
“We shouldn’t let our guard down. As I usually say, the virus is not on vacation, neither are we. And I have been doing it since I took office, as my predecessor did,” Castex said Monday during a visit to the northeastern city of Lille.
“I call on every Frenchwoman, every Frenchman, every person to remain very vigilant, because the fight against the virus, the fight against this disease, relies of course on the State, of course on local communities, of course, on all institutions that are mobilized, but also relies on each and every one of us,” he added.
