The Head of State will answer questions from Anne-Sophie Lapix and Gilles Bouleau on Wednesday evening, live from the Elysée.
For several days, the executive has continued to distill alarmist messages on the resurgence of the coronavirus epidemic which would threaten to overwhelm the health system. The latest figures show an overall increase in the number of people in intensive care (1,633 for a current national capacity of around 5,000 beds) and 84 more deaths in 24 hours, for an overall death toll of nearly 33,000 in seven months.
A worrying resurgence of the pandemic has led other European countries to tighten their health measures. The Head of State will therefore address the French from 7:55 pm. This will be his first long intervention on the health crisis since July 14.
The Head of State will not make a speech in front of the camera like his last, on June 14, 2020, when he announced that all the French territory was going into “green zone”. Emmanuel Macron will answer questions from journalists Anne-Sophie Lapix and Gilles Bouleau. The interview will be broadcast live from the Elysée on TF1 and France 2 channels.
On which digital platforms will the interview be broadcast?
On the Internet, it will also be possible to follow this interview. From his smartphone, tablet or computer, you can follow the president’s statement on the websites of TF1 and France 2 but also on the Elysée YouTube account. On social networks, the Twitter account of the Elysee and that ofEmmanuel Macron will also broadcast the interview.
