Coronavirus: Experts warn France has lost control of the epidemicFrance's president Emmanuel Macron will give a televised address to the nation on Wednesday evening after convening meetings to review the country's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, the Élysée Palace said.

The government is looking at what new restrictions should be issued amid what experts are calling a "brutal" second wave of COVID-19 infections in the country.

Back in March, most of the cases were located in the eastern part of the country, but now infections are spreading throughout France, and hospitals are filling up quickly.

France counted a record 52,000 new cases on Sunday but experts say that with many asymptomatic cases, the toll is likely higher.

The president's office has not indicated what Macron's speech on Wednesday is likely to say but similar televised addresses have previously been used to announce new pandemic-related measures.
