The French government has decided to extend the state of health declared due to the coronavirus pandemic until July 24, the health minister has announced.

The lifting of the two-month state of emergency declared on March 24 would be too early, according to Olivier Véran, on May 23: the sudden lifting of precautionary measures could give the pandemic a new impetus.
