France has announced more than 50,000 new cases of the new coronavirus in the past 24 hours, a new record.
There were 52,010 new infections on Sunday, the highest in a single day since the introduction of widespread testing in the country.
According to the data, around 17% of those tested were carriers of the virus.
The number of cases has increased dramatically for weeks, and several records have been announced in the past seven days alone.
France said on Friday it had recorded more than a million cases since the start of the pandemic.
More than 34,700 people have died from the virus.
New rules have been applied in two-thirds of France since Saturday, meaning people can only go out at night if they have good reason to.
The regulations apply in 54 administrative regions or French departments and in French Polynesia.
