France’s president has said that the national recovery would need to be ‘organized,’ in a speech at the Elysee Palace as the country celebrated a subdued Labor Day, while movement in the country remains tightly restricted.

Emmanuel Macron said that the end of the nationwide lockdown in 10 days would just be a tentative first step on the road to recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.

The president said life “wouldn’t be back to normal” and there will be “several phases” in lifting the restrictions, with May 11 just being “one of them.” He added that a “recovery [period] has to be organized”; his comments followed a meeting with French horticulturalists.
