Lead levels around Notre Dame finally safe for children

"When the presence of lead in the square was first measured, it was found to be 100 times higher than the maximum allowed for a residential flat." France 24's Peter O'Brien reports that, while construction workers must still take safety precautions to avoid lead poisoning, the area surrounding the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris is slowly being decontaminated and reopened to the public. Despite a case of lead poisoning in one young child, the reopened streets are reportedly safe for people of all ages.
