France has seen better days. The same holds true for the better part of Europe. While a few days back, it was Germany that was feeling the heat- although it’s doing fine now- it can be said that the current situation thanks to the lockdown in France doesn’t seem all that good.

So why’s that?

The thriving heart of Europe has remained closed for days and weeks put together. So will the situation be better and is France open to its own and the rest of the world? This question has bothered the nationals and those who curiously look at the land that has attained great heights akin to the lankiness of the Eiffel Tower.

Though, the answer, at this point in time, isn’t bright at all.

Apparently, the lockdown in France is said to continue for days to come. In fact, to be precise, it doesn’t cut a very motivating figure to know that the medical emergency in France has now been extended until July 24.

To come to think of it, that can easily bring about massive dismay. Won’t that be right to say? The streets of the world’s most romantic city bear a brazenly empty look. No one is getting out of the homes.

The usually enchanting streets and boulevards where coffee and music jive to bring up the best moments of life are sporting a deserted look. It’s true whether you are an onlooker staring at the St. Michael or the road that leads to the Champs Elysees.

A sense of quiet has disgruntled the pleasantly buzzing city, such a vital postcard that extends France, and hence, Europe’s mesmerizing beauty to the rest of the world.

But nothing seems to matter as much as the draft law being debated in France at the moment, the same being brought about by the Health Minister, Mr. Oliver Veran.

Here’s what respected international news media Channel 24 news had to say in the matter concerning the lockdown in France, and now its extension:

“We are going to have to perform a long-distance run,” Veran said, adding he was aware that the French people had already been asked for “colossal efforts” in the fight against the virus.

The new emergency Bill also lays out the quarantine conditions for people coming to France from abroad.

“We are going to have to live with the virus for a while,” Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said after a cabinet meeting. Learning to live with the virus, that’s what’s at stake in the coming months.”

Now, that being told, just think for a second. Think about the country that has already borne the massively tense situation in the wake of the lockdown?

Think for a second about the state of economy in a Europe that had already, as of the last quarter of the decade, begun to feel the jolts? The banks; their interest and lending rates!

The condition surrounding several other existential crises that one of the most enigmatic continents has had to bare- things like the rise of the far-right movements.

And now what about the business scenario? Whose loss is it anyway? What do the forthcoming months hold- one surely doesn’t know. Let’s not even get to the rampant unemployment that had already begun to pose problems.
