Another Record Number of New Corona Cases in France

French health authorities registered 13,215 new corona cases on Friday. Never before has the increase been so significant.


During the highest peak at the end of March, more than 7,500 infections were detected in 24 hours. In recent days, the counter in France has already exceeded 10,000 twice.

The death toll rose compared to Thursday by 154 – not seen since mid-May – to 31,249.

Bad news also came from the hospitals, which had 3,626 Covid-19 patients in the past seven days, over 400 more than were reported the day before over a week. 571 corona victims are now on artificial respiration.

Due to the significantly increased spread of the feared virus, regulations have been tightened in several French regions and cities. In Nice, public areas are limited to a maximum of ten people, and the cafes must close early.

Marseille and Bordeaux have already taken these measures before. Paris is not that far yet, but the police commissioner on Friday gave strict advice to limit private meetings to no more than ten people.
