Daily death toll from coronavirus in France accelerates – Minister of Health


PARIS, April 6 (Reuters) – The number of people who died from coronavirus infections in French hospitals increased by 10% in one day to reach a cumulative total of 6,494, Health Minister Olivier Veran said on Monday a press conference.

He added that, including partial data on the number of people who died in nursing homes, the total number of deaths from the disease went from 8,078 to 8,911 on Sunday, which also represents an increase of 10 %.

In both cases, the rate of increase accelerated again after several days of deceleration. (Report by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Chris Reese)
