France announces tighter Covid restrictions in light of Omicron surge

France has announced tighter Covid restrictions amid concerns over the Omicron variant.

From January 3, remote working will become compulsory for those who can and public gatherings will be limited to 2,000 people for indoor events.

The news comes as France recorded more than 100,000 new infections on Saturday – the highest number reported in the country since the pandemic began.

But the prime minister stopped short of implementing a New Year’s Eve curfew.
