PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron will speak towards the middle of next week about the conditions for a progressive easing of the French lockdown, BFM TV said on Tuesday, citing sources.

The government imposed a new lockdown on Oct. 30 to rein in a surge in new cases although the restrictions were softer than in March to limit the impact on the euro zone’s second-biggest economy.
