France to deploy over 1,00,000 police
The European country of France has decided to deploy as many as 1,00,000 police personals in order to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 during the New Year period.
The country has already imposed a curfew to prevent the spread of the disease.
France is one of the worst affected countries in the continent of Europe. The country has so far witnessed as many as 2.6m Covid-19 cases – which is the fifth highest total in the world.
The country has also seen as many as 64,000 deaths.
The deployment does not mean that the new year celebration will not happen in France. It only means that this year the celebration will be a limited one.
The main city centers in the country will see maximum number of security personals. The deployment has been justified on the ground that it is necessary to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The deployment will affect the transport facility including metro transport and road transport partially.
Not only France, several other countries in the continent of Europe have stepped up their security installations in order to make sure the possibility of the spread of the disease is kept low.
It is necessary to impose strict measures to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. The continent is facing a serious threat from a highly contagious variant of the Covid-19 virus at this juncture.
