France, where authorities had previously warned of the return of the coronavirus, has recorded a record number of new infections. Reported by France 24.
For example, the French Ministry of Health said that 5,429 new cases of coronavirus infection were registered in the past 24 hours, which is a new high since the peak of the COVID-19 epidemic in early April.
According to the latest data, the total number of confirmed cases of coronavirus infection in France is 253,587 people, deaths вЂ” 30,544.
Commenting on this data, Prime Minister Jean Castex admitted the possibility of re-introducing quarantine but stressed that this is вЂњby no means our goalвЂќ, recalling the dire consequences for the economy.
вЂњI have never believed and do not believe that the state is capable of doing absolutely everything, it has only a share of the responsibility. But at the same time, it is necessary that the entire population is aware of its involvement in the fight against the epidemic.вЂќ
Recall that in June, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the first victory over the COVID-19 epidemic, but a month later he warned of a new wave of coronavirus.
So, according to him, the country has prepared for a possible second wave of the epidemic: in France вЂњthere are stocks of masks, respirators, and medicines.вЂќ Macron reminded the French of the importance of compliance with the sanitary measures taken in the country in connection with the coronavirus.
As reported, Paris decided to open the Eiffel Tower to visitors, which was closed on March 13 due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
