    As more than 20 million people in France, and tens of millions more around Europe, face new restrictions to their daily lives to curb coronavirus transmission, FRANCE 24 speaks to the Director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Dr. Andrea Ammon tells us that the containment measures being taken now – from curfews to localised lockdowns will not control the increase in covid-19 infections on their own – rather that they must be accompanied by effective testing and contact-tracing.
