More than 100 diners at a restaurant in Paris have been fined and the manager captured for violating Covid restrictions, French police say. Officers were called to an address within the capital following a noise complaint and found a clandestine gathering, Paris police tweeted on Saturday.
It comes days after French police propelled an investigation into affirmed fine dining and parties within the city. Last week, private TV channel M6 broadcast an undercover film it said was from a covered-up camera, showing diners enjoying caviar, champagne, and truffles at two upmarket scenes.
In response to the report, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin requested a test, saying that such social occasions, which were breaching Covid lockdown rules, would be "completely unacceptable". The most recent occurrence happened on Friday in the 19th arrondissement (area) of Paris and included "over 110 individuals", police said.
Surging coronavirus cases in France have prompted a new partial nationwide lockdown in the midst of fears that hospitals may get to be overwhelmed with patients. The nation has battled with an EU-wide delay in the vaccine rollout, as well as a few new strains of the virus.
