The new containment will be less expensive than the first of the spring, especially because utilities and other sectors will be able to continue working.

But the employers still fear many bankruptcies. 

The measure was feared, and it could once again weaken the economy.

Announced Wednesday evening by Emmanuel Macron, the second confinement should cost between 12 and 15 billion euros per month.

And if it is less expensive than the first of spring, the employers fear many bankruptcies.

The curfew on 2/3 thirds of France represented a proposed bill of two billion euros.

But this new confinement will be much less expensive than the first.

Public services, the construction sector, farms, for example, will be able to continue working.

Another important element: companies now know how to use telework.

There will therefore not be a total shutdown of the economy.

For businesses, competition from online platforms

But this confinement comes at the worst time for many traders: at Christmas time.

The "Black Friday" at the end of November has become the biggest day of consumption in France, and the hard shops will not benefit from it.

This should further accelerate the growth of online platforms, and put many businesses in great difficulty.

Despite the aid measures which are extended, according to the employers, we must therefore expect many bankruptcies.

The re-containment will "cause considerable economic and human damage", warned the president of Medef Geoffroy Roux de BĂ©zieux on Wednesday evening.

According to him, in total, the reconfinement "will cost the country between 50 and 75 billion euros of gross domestic product".
