He says residents will only be permitted to leave their homes for necessary trips such as going to work or the supermarket.

"Any violations will be penalised, without elaborating how" - Macron added.

Earlier in the day, Macron held a meeting with his prime minister, top military adviser, intelligence coordinator and ministers of health, the interior and foreign affairs on the health crisis before giving his televised address at 8pm Paris time.

As we reported before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spoke on the ICTV channel, where he answered a number of questions that related to the upcoming All-Ukrainian quarantine, prohibitions and restrictions, as well as how people should be in such conditions.
