France New COVID-19 cases rise again, rise in intensive care units


PARIS – New COVID-19 infections in France increased by more than 1,600 in 24 hours for the second day in a row on Thursday, placing the country at levels not seen since the end of May, while the number of patients affected in the units of intensive care has also increased.

At 1604, the daily tally of new cases is lower than that of Wednesday, 1695, but still not far from the May 30, 1828 figure. The total number of cases reached 195,633.

The seven-day moving average of new cases, which currently stands at 1,351, has risen every day but one in the past 11 days, rising almost 50% during that time.

The figure of 1351 is five times higher than a low of 272 seen on May 27, but also more than three times lower than a high of 4537 on April 1.
