The Champs Elysees in Paris is nearly empty as a lockdown imposed to slow the rate of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in France enters its sixth day.
The Paris Police Prefecture increased checks at train stations in the French capital starting on 20 March as part of its efforts to monitor compliance with measures that limit the movement of citizens to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
France went into virtual lockdown earlier in the week, but the movement of people is still allowed under strict conditions. Authorities were initially unable to enforce the shutdown and crowds could still be spotted after repeated appeals to self-isolate.
