Given the lifting of quarantine restrictions and a new rise in the incidence of coronavirus, French health authorities have decided to provide free tests for COVID-19. Health Minister Olivier Veran stated this in an interview published in the Le Parisien news agency, according to Reuters.

"We wouldn’t describe this as a second wave, but what’s clear is that for several days now we have seen a noticeable increase in the number of confirmed cases, which had been in decline for 13 weeks," Veran explained.
