Did you miss the news from the start of the morning? We have concocted a recap to help you see more clearly.
Jean Castex will speak this Thursday at 6 p.m. on health measures
France will know this Thursday from 6 p.m. the new measures taken to fight against the spread of the coronavirus. It is indeed at this time that Jean Castex will hold a press conference surrounded by no less than six ministers: Olivier Véran (Health), Jean-Michel Blanquer (National Education), Bruno Le Maire (Economy and Finances), Elisabeth Borne (Work), Roselyne Bachelot (Culture) and Frédérique Vidal (Higher education). The Prime Minister should then express himself in particular on the widening or generalization of the curfew at 6 p.m.
It’s historic. Never had an impeachment been voted twice against the same American president. Indicted by the House on Wednesday for “incitement to insurgency”, Donald Trump should soon be tried by the Senate. In all likelihood, his trial will take place after Joe Biden takes office on January 20. The future of the White House tenant – who could be declared ineligible if convicted, will largely depend on the position of Republican leader Mitch McConnell.
Investigators from the World Health Organization arrived in Wuhan on Thursday. It was in this city in central China that the new coronavirus was first reported at the end of 2019. The team, made up of 10 scientists of different nationalities, will be responsible, after a two-week quarantine, to trace back to origins of Covid-19. The visit, which lasted for five already six weeks, is highly sensitive to the Chinese regime, anxious to avoid any responsibility for the epidemic which has killed nearly two million people worldwide.
