France records more than 3,000 new cases of COVID-19 for second day in a row

                Le ministère français de la Santé a signalé dimanche 3015 nouvelles infections à coronavirus au cours des dernières 24 heures, le deuxième jour consécutif au cours duquel de nouveaux cas ont dépassé la barre des 3000.

Cependant, le décompte quotidien était inférieur aux 3310 cas signalés samedi qui ont marqué un sommet après le verrouillage, selon les données du ministère.

A sharp increase in cases in France has led authorities in the country’s two largest cities, Paris and Marseille, to expand areas where masks are compulsory outside, while the government is preparing to offer masks in shared indoor workspaces.

The resurgence has also prompted Britain to impose a 14-day quarantine for people arriving from France starting on Saturday.

The number of coronavirus clusters under investigation in France has risen to 263, the ministry said in an update to its website.

The number of people hospitalized edged up to 4,860, adding to an increase recorded a day earlier, while the number of intensive care patients remained unchanged at 376 after increasing the day before, the ministry said.

The cumulative death toll in France from COVID-19 in hospitals and nursing homes increased by one to 30,410, he said.
