FRENCH medics are being forced to choose which of their critically ill patients lives and dies as coronavirus ravages the country.
It comes as President Emmanuel Macron finally announced a three-week nationwide school closure and domestic travel ban on Wednesday.
President Macron held a nationwide address yesterday in which he said measures already introduced in some regions in France will be extended across the country.
People are also asked to work from home where they can and non-essential shops will be closed, with the measures lasting for four weeks.
Saying the education of children is "non-negotiable", the French president announced daycare centres, primary schools, middle schools and high schools will shut for just three weeks.
