France reports lowest number of Covid-19 deaths in seven months – fr


France’s daily death toll from Covid-19 fell to a low of 70 in seven months on Sunday, while the seven-day moving average of daily cases fell below 13,000 for the first time since late 2020.

Figures from the French Ministry of Health released on Sunday also showed that the number of people treated for the disease in intensive care units fell for the 20th day in a row, from 29 to 3,515, nearly half of the total he five weeks ago.

France has been gradually easing its lockdown since the start of May and hopes to lift all major restrictions by the end of June.

The country’s Covid-19 contact tracing application has been downloaded by 16.5 million people, or 24.6% of the French population, the Minister of Digital Affairs said earlier.

This total exceeded the minimum level that the application needed to function effectively.

After a slow start, France’s vaccination campaign gained momentum, with 34.5% of the population having received at least one vaccination from Sunday and 14.5% having received two vaccines.
