PARIS, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- France's nationwide coronavirus lockdown could be lifted on Dec. 15 if health conditions are met, President Emmanuel Macron announced Tuesday in a TV address.

Starting Saturday, non-essential shops will be allowed to reopen until 9 p.m. and under strict health conditions, he said.

Since September, coronavirus infections in France had spiraled to levels much higher than in the first wave of the pandemic, dragging the country into its second nationwide lockdown on Oct. 30.
