France has entered its third lockdown in a year to tackle the coronavirus, with the country reporting an average daily 37,000 cases and intensive care unit patient numbers exceeding the second wave's record of 5,200.

The one-month confinement, which came into force Saturday night, is less strict than those imposed in March and November, but still sees non-essential stores closed and in-person classes suspended. EFE-EPA
