In the last 24 hours, 263 new cases have been registered in France with fatal consequences due to coronavirus pandemics.
That’s significantly more than the 70 that were registered the day before, the health ministry said.
The one percent increase is the largest in the past five days, but the figures on Monday tend to rise after the weekend.
The total death toll is now 26,643, the highest since the United States, Britain, Italy and Spain.
Today there are 2,712 people in intensive care units, which is less than yesterday when there were 2,776, and in line with the long-term decline.
