French restaurant owners protest new closures in virus fight

Hundreds of restaurant and bar owners protested in the southern French city of #Marseille on Friday against new shutdown orders to curb a surge in #Covid-19 cases. Health Minister Olivier Veran announced the closures for Marseille and the surrounding region this week after #contagion rates jumped, while bars in #Paris and 10 other cities will have to shut by 10:00 pm starting Monday.
