France sets one-day record for Covid-19 cases

French officials announced on Thursday that the European country set another single-day record for new COVID-19 cases, recording more than 30,000 new cases.

France confirmed a total of 30,621 new coronavirus cases as a surge wipes the nation, an increase from Wednesday’s documented 22,591 new cases, Reuters reported.

The highest single-day increase in cases came one day after French President Emmanuel Macron announced a nightly curfew in Paris and eight other cities beginning on Saturday night.

The previous single-day record for new cases in France occurred last week on Oct. 10 when 26,896 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed. Thursday’s increase brought France’s total from the entire pandemic to 809,684 cases.

The country documented 88 new deaths from COVID-19 on Thursday and 104 new fatalities on Wednesday, bringing the total to 33,125. The number of patients in intensive care units rose by 77 on Thursday, according to Reuters.
