The infections of Covid continue to grow in France, which returns to exceed 10 thousand new cases per day, for the first time since May 29. Today’s bulletin reports 10,908 infections, compared to 3,617 yesterday. However, the figure could be partially distorted by the slowdown in tests on Wednesday 14 July, a national holiday, notes Le Parisien. Last Friday there were 4,580 cases.
There are 22 deaths in hospital, against 16 yesterday and 18 last Friday. The decline in hospitalizations continues: currently there are 6,971 people in hospital for covid-19, against 7,054 yesterday and 7,275 last Friday. Among the hospitalized, there are 899 in intensive care, 15 less than yesterday. A week ago there were 953.
