The region is struggling with rising numbers of infections while deaths rose by 32 percent last week. France has imposed a month long lockdown. Across the border, people in Germany are also preparing for a month of restrictions from Monday. Britain has once again decided to go its own way in how it handles the pandemic. And there are warnings things may get even worse. But are these restrictions the answer to the pandemic?
