PARIS, April 19 (Xinhua) — The coronavirus pandemic situation is improving “slowly but surely” in France though it is far from over, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on Sunday.

 

There were signs that pressures on hospitals were easing as the number of coronavirus patients in intensive care dropped for 11 days in a row, said Philippe at a joint press conference with Health Minister Olivier Veran.

“We lived in an unprecedented sanitary crisis, which is not over but we have won some points,” he said.

 

“After the sanitary crisis, there would be an economic crisis, which would be brutal,” he added.

 

France on Sunday reported 395 deaths from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours as the number of new hospitalizations continued a slow decline.

 

The new deaths brought France’s total fatalities to 19,718.
