Published on:

                Le tableau de bord des coronavirus de l'Organisation mondiale de la santé a montré dimanche un nombre quotidien record de nouveaux cas de Covid-19 au cours du week-end, la France ayant enregistré 27228 nouveaux cas et 302 décès supplémentaires au cours des dernières 24 heures, selon les données du ministère de la Santé.

                                    <p>Les chiffres de l'OMS pour samedi ont montré que 660905 cas de coronavirus ont été signalés à l'agence de santé des Nations Unies, créant un nouveau filigrane élevé.

That number, and the 645,410 recorded on Friday, surpassed the previous daily high of 614,013 recorded on November 7.

Among Saturday’s new cases, the WHO Americas region recorded a one-day record of 269,225 new confirmed cases.

During each week, the profile of cases reported to WHO tends to peak around Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and decline around Tuesday and Wednesday.

According to WHO figures, there have been more than 53.7 million confirmed cases of the disease in total since the start of the pandemic, while more than 1.3 million people have lost their lives.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned on Friday that there was “a long way to go” to bring the virus under global control.

France sees a slight drop in the rate of new cases

France has meanwhile recorded 27,228 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 302 other deaths from the disease in the past 24 hours, data from the Ministry of Health showed on Sunday, although there were signs a drop in the rate of new cases.

France has now recorded 1,981,827 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in total, while 44,548 people have died from the virus – the seventh highest death toll in the world.

Nonetheless, the data marked a slight drop from the previous day’s Covid-19 figures in terms of new confirmed cases and deaths.

France is in the midst of its second national lockdown aimed at curbing the spread of the virus, after its March-May shutdown.

President Emmanuel Macron’s government has set a December 1 deadline for this lockdown, although the government has said it could extend it beyond if it feels the numbers are not dropping fast enough.

The government is under pressure from stores and businesses to ease restrictions in time for the Christmas shopping season.
