A woman walks by Notre Dame cathedral Saturday Sept.26, 2020 in Paris. While France suffered testing shortages early in the pandemic, ramped-up testing since this summer has helped authorities track a rising tide of infections across the country. More than 15,000 new cases were reported Friday, and the Paris hospital system is starting to delay some non-virus surgeries to free up space for COVID-19 patients. (AP Photo/Lewis Joly)

French Health Minister Olivier Veran holds a press conference at La Timone public hospital, Friday Sept. 25, 2020 in Marseille, southern France. Angry restaurant and bar owners demonstrated in Marseille to challenge a French government order to close all public venues as of Saturday to battle resurgent virus infections. The government argues that hospitals in this Mediterranean city are under strain and the closures are the only way to stem the spread while avoiding new lockdowns. (Christophe Simon, Pool via AP)
