France is one of the European countries which has been largely affected by the deadly disease. The spread of Coronavirus in France is increasing with every passing day. The French government have banned the gathering of more than 1,000 people at a time. Due to the increase of Coronavirus in France, the Champions League game between PSG and Dortmund was played behind closed doors. Coronavirus in France has increased to such an extent that French president Emmanuel Macron has asked all the schools to be shut down in an effort to put a halt on the spread of the disease.
Inevitable now the Premier League will be suspended this morning, as Ligue 1 in France becomes last of the major Euro Leagues (PL aside) to stop games going ahead.
