Here's a peek at the planned Frog lockdown:
From Tuesday on, total confinement (except for first necessity) + curfew at 6:00 pm and neighborhood blockades, just like in Italy.
Passes for doctors, police, etc. only
Army could be involved in the lockdown enforcement.

My hometown is officially a "cluster" now, with 23 cases, all brought to us by the same evangelical weirdos who organized a rally in Mulhouse.
All schools, theatres and sports buildings are closed for two weeks at last.
We're de facto self-quarantined. Good thing I work from home.
