France has been under strict anti-coronavirus lockdown since March 17.
Philippe wrote that the “national deconfinement strategy” would be based around six themes: “health (masks, tests, isolation…), school, work, shops, transport, and gatherings.”
“Since the beginning of the crisis, I have always been careful to respect Parliamentary control: the deconfinement strategy will be announced in the National Assembly,” he wrote.
“My declaration will be subject to a debate and then vote by deputies,” he added.
President Emmanuel Macron had announced that the lockdown measures will be gradually lifted starting on May 11.
