Coronavirus: France's frontline workers
Issued on: Modified:
This week, we're shining the spotlight on the people who are keeping France running during the unprecedented lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors and nurses are, of course, working around the clock to save lives. But there are many others who are doing essential, but less celebrated jobs: cleaners, cashiers, rubbish collectors and truckers. They are France's invisible but frontline workers; men and women working behind the scenes to keep the country going during these extraordinary times. We went to meet some of them.
