HOSPITALIZATION RISE AS FRANCE’S DAILY COVID-19 CASES HIT RECORD

7 months ago | World | 0 comments

By Xai Reyes

Health authorities said France recorded almost 9,000 new COVID-19 cases on Friday (Sep 4), setting a record since the beginning of the pandemic, while more people were also hospitalized as a result of the disease.

There had been 8,975 new confirmed cases, almost 1,500 higher than the previous Mar 31 daily peak of 7,578, when France was in one of Europe’s strictest coronavirus lockdowns.

The surge in parts of France, which is partially due to increased testing, has meant a dozen schools have been forced to close just days into the new academic year.

The seven-day moving average of new infections, which smooths out reporting irregularities, stood at an eighth consecutive record of 6,011, versus a low of 272 on May 27 – two weeks after authorities lifted the two-month-long lockdown.

The cumulative number of cases now totals 309,156.
