PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron will make a televised address to the nation at 1900 GMT on Monday, said Macron’s department, as speculation mounts that France may consider new measures to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.

Macron is also due to convene a top-level government meeting on the issue later on Monday.
