Paris, March 4 : A total of 3,810,316 people in France have been diagnosed with Covid-19 after 26,788 positive cases were confirmed in the past 24 hours, the biggest daily increase since February 24, official figures showed.
The number of people who lost their lives to the coronavirus increased by 322 to reach 87,542, the seventh highest in the world, Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday.
The number of hospitalized patients fell by 152 within a day to 25,111, while the number of serious cases rose again by 51 to 3,637, taking up 70 percent of the country’s 5,100 resuscitation beds.
These data marked “not an exponential rise but a continuous and worrying increase,” government spokesperson Gabriel Attal said early Wednesday after a weekly cabinet meeting.
“Vaccinating the most vulnerable is protecting hospitals, is to give us a chance to be able to ease as quickly as possible the restrictions which weigh on our daily life,” Attal told reporters.
“It is neither a distant nor uncertain horizon. It is a horizon that is getting closer and closer. We hope maybe from mid-April (we will ease restrictions), and we are preparing for it,” he said.
