French police searched the homes of the health minister, the former prime minister and other top officials Thursday in an investigation into the governments response to the global coronavirus pandemic.
The dawn searches, confirmed by the Health Ministry, come as France is fighting against a resurgent epidemic that has now filled a third of the countrys intensive care units with COVID-19 patients and is again putting Europe to the test.
The investigation threatens to rekindle public frustration with a government thats been accused of lying to the public about mask stocks, underestimating testing needs and overestimating Frances ability to vanquish the pandemic - not once, but now twice.
Doctors accuse the government of lying to the public earlier in the year, when top officials told the public masks werent necessary even as they struggled to secure enough supplies for French hospitals amid surging global demand.
They should have said that there were no masks. That was the real problem, he said. They refused to tell the truth.
The government has said that its early guidance on not wearing masks was based on limited understanding of the new coronavirus at the time.
The government continues to send mixed messages about the virus. In addition to the curfew in several cities, the prime minister announced a nationwide ban on public weddings Thursday, even as the president encouraged French people to travel as usual for upcoming autumn school vacations.
The government announced it will deploy 12,000 police to enforce the new curfew, and will spend another 1 billion euros to help businesses hit hardest by the latest virus restrictions.

Yes indeed. Wear your masks unless you are this faker and his elite female buddies, Pelosi, Feinstein, ??????
He sucks as a doctor and his pitching is even worse.
Watch how this plays out.
French police are nowhere to be seen when the rioters show up.
When they are safe and outnumber normal people, all heck shows up.
Come to think of it....this is what is happening in Portland.
This isn’t about masks.
It’s about money.
