France and Germany have announced second national lockdowns to try to curb a surge in coronavirus cases and deaths.

President Emmanuel Macron confirmed his country’s widely-expected measures, which will start this Friday and last until 1 December.

The month-long measures will include:

A ‘stay at home’ order except to exercise for one hour a day, seek medical care or buy essential goods

– Shutting restaurants and bars
– Non-essential shops to close
– A travel ban between regions
– Closing some external borders
– Universities moving to online teaching

Anyone outside their homes will have to carry a document justifying their excursion, which can be checked by police. Schools will remain open.
