PARIS: French PM Jean Castex has announced tough new Covid-19 border restrictions after cases of coronavirus spiked, of late.

From Sunday all but essential travel from outside of the EU will be banned. Testing requirements from inside the EU will also be tightened, BBC reported.

Mr Castex said police would increase their enforcement of an evening curfew and other rules already in place.

Infections remain high in France, despite recent rule tightening.

The new restrictions will affect the UK, now no longer in the EU, but its transport minister clarified on Twitter that the change would not impact hauliers transporting goods to or from the UK.

The number of coronavirus cases has reached 3,153,487 in France after new 22,858 cases were reported in the country.

Currently, 2,854,693 COVID-19 patients are undergoing treatment at various hospitals and home isolations while 223,174 have returned home after recovery. Similarly, the death toll has reached 75,620 after 510 died in the past 24 hours.
