Weekend lockdown in Paris region may not be enough, says hospital executive

- Enforcing a weekend lockdown in the greater Paris region may not be enough to rein in the coronavirus there, an executive at the AP-HP Paris hospitals organisation, Remi Salomon, said on Wednesday.

Salomon, who heads the group's medical committee, also told BFM TV the currently suspended AstraZeneca AZN.L COVID-19 vaccine was as efficient as the Pfizer PFE.N one.
