Day 186 – 10th day of de-confinement phase IV
France recorded a new daily record of coronavirus contamination cases on Friday, with 13,215 new cases diagnosed in 24 hours, or 428,696 cases since the beginning of the epidemic, according to figures published by Santé Publique France on Friday.
The previous record, set the day before, marked an increase of 10,593 cases in 24 hours.
The number of new hospitalisations over the last seven days is 3,626 against 3,223 on Thursday and 2,976 on Wednesday, and the number of intensive care admissions is 571 against 535 the day before and 508 on Wednesday.
The Aude prefecture has decided to extend the wearing of the compulsory mask at the Cité de Carcassonne, on markets, flea markets, funfairs and garage sales, and for gatherings of more than 10 people in places open to the public, until 30 October 2020.
In a press release issued this Thursday morning, the Prefecture explains its decision by “the incidence rate of Covid-19, which has been increasing sharply since the end of July, has reached the
last week the alert threshold of 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants”. But the Prefect, Sophie Elizéon, wants to be more reassuring “the latest updates do not show an increase in the incidence rate. Similarly, the positivity rate remains around 2.5%. ».
