Shares in Air France KLM and French hotels company Accor fell on Tuesday after the United States issued a travel warning on France, due to high levels of the COVID-19 virus in the country.

Air France KLM shares were down 0.7% in early session trading, while Accor declined by 0.8%.

On Monday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned against travel to Israel, France, Thailand, Iceland and several other countries because of a rising number of COVID-19 cases in those nations.
