France Reports Significantly Fewer Corona Infections
The health authorities in France reported significantly fewer new corona infections on Monday. Last day there were 4,070, while last week more than 10,000 new cases were reported per day.
It is true that the figure is often lower on Monday because less testing is done on Sunday.
The total number of infections in France now stands at more than 542,000. Deaths from Covid-19 increased 81 to 31,808.
Authorities in Marseille, among others, have recently taken stricter corona measures. There was a lot of protest against the decision to close catering establishments for at least two weeks.
In Paris and several other cities, bars must close by 10 pm on Monday. Gatherings in public with more than ten people are no longer allowed. Health clubs must close completely.
