    Amman, Oct. 29 (Petra)-- Two of Europe's biggest economies are reinstating some form of national lockdown, as the continent confronts a surge in coronavirus cases and deaths.

    From Friday people in France will only be allowed to leave home for essential work or medical reasons.

    French President Emmanuel Macron said the country risked being 'overwhelmed by a second wave that no doubt will be harder than the first'.

    Germany, meanwhile, is imposing a 'soft' national lockdown.

    The measures coming into force on Monday are less severe than in France, but they include the closure of restaurants, bars, gyms and theatres, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said.
