Jerome Salomon, the director of the Public Health Service said during a press conference that the number of cases increased from 7,730 on Tuesday to 9,134 on Wednesday, equivalent to an increase of 18 percent within 24 hours.
Salomon added that 931 people are in serious condition and need to stay under rations.
The numbers in France remain in the footsteps of what is happening in the neighboring Italy, where Corona has caused the death of 475 people during the last 24 hours in the worst outcome recorded in one country within a day as declared by the Civil Defense.
The number of deaths in Italy has now reached 3 thousand as a result of this epidemic as in an outcome convergent of those recorded in China (more than 3,200 deaths) where the "Covid-19" virus appeared according to Agence France-Presse.
